Will the glow be off the Halo?

The prequel Halo Reach is the final adventure in the video game franchise that will involve production studio Bungie. Publisher Microsoft, however, will continue the Halo journey.

They still have the most important people from Bungie.

Like Frank O connor
(Franchise Development Director so he knows what halo is and what it is supposed to be)

Nathan Walpole
(Senior Animator so he knows what halo looks and feels like)

Halo without Bungie is like CoD without Infinity Ward. How you take that statement is up to you. Nevertheless, their departure leaves big ass shoes to be filled. Doesn't mean it can't be done, but there will be lots of expectations and little room for forgiveness.

Good thing that it almost seems treyarch is making a better cod then mw 2.

TEFL0N_D0N_812964d ago

I agree a bit. There are some parts of CoD:WaW that I like better than MW2. In fact, I enjoyed the multiplayer better, including zombies. Campaign though, MW2 still delivered.

Went to school with him :)

Also, his borther was in the top 3 (I think?) in Canadian Idol.

They may also have Shishka. He apparently doesn't work at Bungie anymore.

Halochampian2964d ago

Shishka still works for Bungie as far as I know. He worked a lot with Forge World in Reach

Marty O'Donnell will definitely be a hard person to replace, as I've thought the music in the Halo series has been incredible.

pr0digyZA2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

Agreed the music is exceptional in halo. I'm confident though that Microsoft can find someone to keep the spirit of the games going, hey maybe the next person will make the music even better.

And with 343 I'm fairly sure they know what they are doing, and can pull off an amazing title when it's time.

Garrus_Vakarian2964d ago

I definitely agree with that. That's where I have my doubts about 343. Marty's music is amazing.

outrageous2964d ago

I have to agree with sentiment being shared here. Marty O'Donnell is definitely going to be hard to replace. I wonder if he would supply some music for Halo 4. It's not like these people don't talk

Here's a Marty interview for Reach...

The are some great talent available out there...Hans Zimmer is a legendary composer and responsible for some incredible music, including MW2. M$ can afford anybody and I expect 343 will bring in the right people.

Here's a couple Hans Zimmer movie soundtracks...there are to many to list...

Halo Wars was not made by Bungie and the quality of that game, even tho it's a RTS really shined thru...check out some cut scenes from Halo Wars...

I think the Halo franchise will be great and I can't wait to see halo 4. I think Bungie has to prove that Halo wasn't a fluke and going with a RPG will be a challenge. Looking forward to there next project.

I personally think that the future of the Halo franchise is in good hands. Mainly because this is Microsoft's cash cow franchise and they really wouldn't want to do anything to ruin that.

Delt42964d ago

I truthfully hope 343 can take halo and run with it. I wish them the best of luck to take what Bungie has done and not only make it better but make it there own. Only time will tell what will happen with the Halo franchise. Good Luck 343 and good luck to Bungie and they're new IP

It's not going to be the same without you
