Halo is one of the most popular game franchises in the world and it should come as no surprise that everyone is waiting for the sixth installment to be announced. However, Halo fans started doubting that a new game might arrive ever since Microsoft revealed Halo: Fireteam Raven. Fortunately, Brian Jarrard who is the community manager for Halo decided to reassure everyone that Halo 6 is not affected by the newly revealed title.
Halo: Fireteam Raven
The first thing we need to mention is that Halo: Fireteam Raven is an arcade game. Therefore, Microsoft is just looking to capitalize on the popularity that Halo benefits from and generate a profit from the arcade community. Nonetheless, Halo fans are still worried that Microsoft has decided to drop Halo 6 in favor of the Halo: Fireteam Raven.
Halo Community Manager Speaks Out
Halo fans started posting on the community forum about how Microsoft doesn’t want to release a new title and seeing this, Brian Jarrard decided to let everyone know that they don’t have anything to worry about.
“Fireteam Raven has zero impact on the 343 development team which has already been working on the next console game. Fireteam Raven is built by an external arcade developer. Just like the Halo books or toys aren’t being created instead of the next Halo game. Plenty to go around” said Brian Jarrard over Twitter.
Halo 6 4k Graphics and Next-Gen Gameplay Features
Considering that the most recent Halo title is Halo 5: Guardians and that it was released back in October 2015, we think it’s safe to assume that Microsoft might be adding the finishing touches Halo 6 at the moment.
In addition, Xbox One X is already available for purchase and this gaming system gives the developers the ability to introduce next-gen gameplay features and 4K graphics without having to worry about frame drops.
