There are some things you’ve got to ask when in the middle of an interview, and in respect of the Halo 4 launch and the future of this franchise, it had to be details about Halo 5 and Xbox 720 that an interviewer would try and find segments of information. This is exactly what happened when Brier Dudley performed an interview with Halo development director at 343 Industries, Frank O’Connor, and asked about Halo 5.
The Q&A also included the head of 343 Industries, Bonnie Ross, but the question about Halo 5 being worked on had been directed at O’Connor, which included digging for information on the Xbox 720 thanks to asking about how “critical” Halo 5 would be to the next Xbox? You can see the section of questions relevant to Halo 5, or whatever the next game will be called, below and this image also contains the answers from O’Connor.
From the answers given above you can pretty much count on a Halo 5 arriving at some point, unless Halo 4 is a complete disaster, and the fact that it will be crucial to the the Xbox 720 launch. You can read the full interview in this article, which delivers some interesting information but certainly lacks the finer details we’d all want to know about Xbox 720. The interviewer had been digging for juicy details and they would’ve been hoping for something to slip out during questioning.
343 Industries also made it clear that they have no plans to launch Halo 4 on PC at this time, which won’t make PC gamers happy and certainly shows how times have changed since the last Halo game. Considering how old the console hardware is and how good PC graphics are in comparison, it is a shame that gamers won’t be given the option of Halo 4 on PC.
Are you looking forward to playing Halo 4 on Xbox 360, and would you have liked a PC option as well?
