Halo is a big brand name. So every article or video is sure to gather clicks.
such a pity that its 99.9% of the times cheap clickbait.
ALL rumors have practically been debunked by ms/343, yet still there are articles from all around "speculating" how they are dropping xbox version, studio is a nightmare, everything is outsourced, they were busy watching halo films, etc.
then, on top of these stupid people are people like you that come up with unbelievable "statements" like "forget microsoft games at least until 2022-2023"
So you don't think Jason is credible is what your saying?
So a PR/Community manager denies 2022, and we are suppose to believe them? Literally early articles and reporters like Jason were saying since July and even further before the July event people with more credibility than you were saying there were issues at 343.
Jason among others earlier last week were saying contract work being one of the big issues, even from a year ago there were glass door reviews literally saying 100% the same thing that is now starting to come up. We now get confirmation on a big contracted studio is working with 343. Which confirms the use of said contractors. On top of other titles like crackdown 3 which had 2-3 different groups working on it. One of which was Sumo Digital who were 100% only contracted for a specific portion of the game.
So the lead creative director left late last year out of the blue, then was replaced by someone internally who then left 2-3 months later, then was replaced by Lee? Do you not see a pattern? There's way too much evidence that the game internally has had issues. It's getting delayed because of said issues, which seem from leaks, reports and people leaving because of high concentration on contract work. On top of covid.
Also there are other developers who have been outspoken about trying to scale down do older consoles not being super great. If you think that demo which was running on PC didn't run great, which it didn't, then what do you think it will look run like on base xbox one?
You are literally having a meltdown because people are talking about something you like/love, and you think everyone is full of shit. You don't believe any of these reports even if they come from someone with one of if not the best reporting track record.
Seriously halo is not your baby, 343 owe you nothing. Take a break, grab a cup of coffee and chill out for a little bit.
Let the dust settle on this and see how it evolves.
