Halo 6 May Have Split Screen – 343 Industries

So you may only have a few … years to wait for the feature to be added back.

Posted By | On 01st, Nov. 2015 Under News


When people found out that Halo 5: Guardians wasn’t going to have the splitscreen multiplayer feature that has been a staple of the series, they were noticeably upset. While 343 was laying out plenty of reasons as to why the game wasn’t going to have this particular feature added in the game, it appears the company hasn’t completely turned a deaf ear to those complaints. It turns out that franchise director Frank O’Connor has actually said his company will revisit putting splitscreen into a current generation Halo game, it just won’t be the one everyone is playing now.

O’Connor sat down with GamesRadar+ and their podcast crew and said the company will indeed take another look at putting the feature back in when they start working on Halo 6 in earnest. He also added that now that Halo 5 has officially launched, there’s really no way they could bring the feature to this game. O’Connor understands just how disappointed some people are about the lack of the ability to see that in this game.

“Realistically, for Halo 5, it’s not something we can just throw in a patch,” O’Connor said. “It’s just not feasible with the way the engine works.” The director says he’s a big fan of the feature as well and so are many of the people on the development team. He reiterated the engine simply didn’t make it possible if the company accomplished all the rest of the things it wanted to do with this game. Because of this, O’Connor addded, “We’ll talk about it for the next game, and we’ll talk about it for the future.”

      Was I supposed to be looking? So technical limitation changed something he said over a year ago… By god the lies.

      Provide me with a real example. Not a tweet. Also how about something relevant like say…last 6 months.

      Im sorry you don’t know how games are made. Allow me to spare you future disappointment. Things change. Always have always will.

      If things in games changing are now lies then every developer of every single game ever made is also a liar. Every single one.

      If you don’t realize how much 343 has lied, flat out LIED to its fanbase, there’s nothing I can post that could convince you. It’s all over waypoint, especially their non-announcements.

      But hey, keep shilliing.

    • d0x360

      Ill humor you. What else have they lied about?

      I don’t think you understand what shill means. So please find a single example of me trying to convince someone to buy halo 5. I’ll give you 1000 years to look and $500 when you find one example of actual shilling.

    I’ll take 60fps over split screen any day. I don’t know who these people are that still play split screen but…they can’t be many otherwise games would all have it still.

    We play halo 5 coop in my house. We use 2 xbox’s and 2 TV’s. Just one copy of the game. I don’t like only having half a screen personally.

    Borderlands does split screen and it tanks the frame rate

    it doesn’t matter if they add it back to the next Halo, me and my wife loved playing local co-op and online but won’t be playing Halo 5 because we can’t play together, so why would i buy Halo 6 if i have missed a whole chunk of the story?

    Well Halo is dead to me, i have owned every Halo game up to Halo 5 (i returned Halo 5) i won’t be buying Halo games anymore as long as 343i are involved, they destroyed a great series for me by taking out split screen, the main feature that made it a great game since Halo 1, i will stick with COD, Destiny, battlefield and of course star wars battlefront 2.
