Halo 5’s Disappointing Story Acknowledged by 343 Industries

Frank O’Connor story digs were “absolutely merited”.

Posted By | On 26th, Apr. 2017 Under News


343 Industries’ Halo 5: Guardians was hyped up to be many things but it was seemed to chiefly revolve around Master Chief and the supposed crimes he had committed. The actual story wasn’t exactly about that. In fact, it was all a ruse to re-introduce Cortana as the newest villain (don’t ask).

In a recent interview with GamesTM (via WCCFTech), franchise director Frank O’Connor finally acknowledged these story missteps, stating that, “We took some digs for storytelling in Halo 5, but they were absolutely merited.

“We very much realised that people wanted Master Chief’s story of Halo 5. We definitely marketed in a way that we hoped was going to bring surprise, but for some fans and certainly fans of Master Chief, it was a huge disappointment because they wanted more Chief.”

In the future, the developer will certainly be focusing more on Chief. “Doubling down on Master Chief story and the amount of focus on him was probably the easiest learning from Halo 5. That was a really simple thing to absorb and embrace.”

This doesn’t mean that Halo 6 is necessarily confirmed but at the very least a future Halo can actually focus on its titular hero rather than being all over the place.

    The story was awful, as was the campaign. Never finished it.
    The multiplayer is still pretty fun. Even after being a year old.

    Halo 5 has better 4 player coop campaign than any Sony exclusive. And it certainly has Better MP than any Sony exclusive. Halo 5 post launch support has been the best of any game I can remember. Well done 343.

      Halo 5 post launch support has been the best of any game I can remember. I would agree on that.

      Post Launch Support?

      That’s just called, “we’re still finishing the game, but you can buy it and play it right now”.

    • zcar_driver

    I expect a Sony mental case…Ocelot or Xrat to say something stupid. Halo 5 has better 4 player coop campaign than any Sony exclusive. And it certainly has Better MP than any Sony exclusive. Halo 5 post launch support has been the best of any game I can remember. Well done 343.

    Translation: Ok. We admit it. It was a cash grab. Halo is dead, but we gotta keep milking it.
