Halo at E3
This year at E3 2017 the Microsoft segment showed off a verity of games and including the new Xbox One X also known as Xbox One Scorpio. But on the Halo news it was lacking, all they showed was a trailer for Halo Wars 2 DLC which we will talk about it later. Many people thought 343 industries would show some halo 6 content but before E3 Bonnie Ross 343’s general manager posted on social media that there will be no Halo 6 at E3 and during E3 343’s writer Jeff Easterling said “And no, that doesn’t mean Gamescom. Or PAX. Trust us, when we’re ready to begin pulling back that proverbial curtain, you’ll know. It won’t be soon.”
Why no halo 6 at E3, Gamescom and PAX
Now that 343 has confirmed that there will be no news for Halo 6 for quite some time, we can now discuss why 343 wont release anything for some time.
The first and the most likely reason is that halo 6 is not ready to be shown at an event this could be for a multiple reasons engine not working, not rendered probably, not enough content, they just want more time to work on it or they want to finish the halo wars 2 story so it can link in the Master Chief’s story. I think that this is a good move on 343’s part sure we didn’t get any thing but this gives them more time to work on Halo 6 and they wont get pressured by the media to release halo 6 early. If they’d release halo 5 later than they did Halo 5 would have had a better lunch than it did i believe 343 have learned from this mistake and doing this will help Halo 6 in the long run. It is also help’s them if they release Halo 6 after the lunch of the bigger titles then there wont be as much competition therefore more people will buy Halo 6 and earn them more money which then can go back into Halo 6 which means more content for the players.
New DLC for Halo Wars 2
Link to Halo Wars 2 DLC: Awakening
The trailer for Halo Wars 2’s first DLC the Awakening is about the long-lost and forgotten Flood. as the trailer starts 2 brutes are walking into cave while Atriox is doing a voice over the brutes continue to walk further into the cave while Atriox is saying I told you don’t go in there then the brutes get blurred out and in front a parasite comes crawling out of a hole. Then the parasites attack the brutes. This is the return of the flood and its an interesting way to bring the flood back but its the most understandable way to as well. In halo 3 the mission HALO you as the Master Chief go with the Arbiter, 343 Guilty Spark and Sgt. Johnson fight your way the halo ring’s control centre to blow it up to kill the Flood when all is going well 343 Guilty Spark turns and kills Sgt. Johnson. After killing Guilty Spark Chief activates the parsley finished halo ring floating above the Ark (where Halo Wars 2 takes place) wiping out the Flood or so we thought.
