Now that Bungie is out and 343 Industries is in charge, things seem to be in motion for more Halo. Last week at the PAX conference, 343 Industries’ creative director, Frank O’Connor gave some interesting hints about Halo 4.
It isn’t just Halo 4, but a brand new trilogy called Reclaimer. Another piece of good news is that it will continue from where they left off from Halo 3. The story’s main focus will be on the relationship between the Chief and Cortana as they explore a new planet of the Forerunner civilization, which is said to have “incredible grandeur and scope.” Cortana will play “an important role in Master Chief’s development.”
Expect a very heavy focus on story. It will play like Halo, but they aren’t playing it safe and re-hashing it all. They will take some risks and try to keep it evolving. We can’t wait to see what they do with it.
