Developer 343 Industries reveals that Halo 6 will be announced only when they feel the time is right, and unfortunately, not too soon
E3 was anticipated to be the stage for Halo 6 by many. But much to the disappointment, developer 343 Industries has revealed before E3 that the event won’t set the stage for the next major entry in the franchise. To add to that, the news out now is that Halo 6 won’t be showing up in the near time either.
The disappointment confirms with the latest blog entry on the official website which reveals that any official word about Halo 6 is far from imminent. The blog also addressed the root of the despair born out of the lack of a remastered fight-finishing. The developers teasing of a little something before E3 eventually turned out to be a new Halo Wars 2 expansion, called Awakening the Nightmare, that brought in new multiplayer contents.
“While there’s little to nothing that can be said on that front, it’s been made clear that we won’t be talking about Halo’s next major title for quite some time,” read the blog. Although disappointing, the developer did mention that the timeline mentioned did not cover upcoming events like Gamescom or PAX. It’s just that they will be pulling off the curtains only when they feel that the stage is set.
As per the previous announcements from Microsoft, the series would see a new addition before the onset of 2018. The latest entry, Halo 5: Guardians, was released back in October 2015. Halo 6 is expected to wipe out the predecessor criticisms alongside adding a new split-screen multiplayer experience.
