Bungie has been developing Halo games for a decade now, and while they’re no longer behind Halo 4, the studio’s co-founder, Alex Seropian has assured fans that 343 Industries will do a great job with Halo 4.
“It’s so crazy in an interesting way. I’ve been an observer for a while now. So much has gone on with the franchise. I will say the encouraging thing is that I know a lot of the folks at Microsoft working on it and they are great people. I’m very hopeful that the team there is very fantastic,” he told GameSpot.
“They are certainly treating it with a lot of care and respect. And applying the resources you’d like to see applied to a franchise like that. I’m hopeful that it will continue to bring the high production value and cool experiences it’s known for.”
He admitted that he was a bit nervous, but mentioned that the game was in good hands.
“We’ll see. Halo is one of the crown jewels in the Microsoft gaming IP, if not the crown jewel, so you would expect nothing less than for them to take the time needed and apply the resources needed to make it great.
“I would be pretty surprised if they wiffed it. Maybe it will bring a fresh perspective, and that’s so hard because there’s so many fans that are used to a particular thing that bringing something new is often… it’s hard to bring something new to a franchise that’s so established. I’m looking forward to it.”
