Straight white male*Please tell me Bonnie Ross is next, I know they'll never dare to fire a diversity hire though. If she has any sense of decency and love for the ip, she'll leave ASAP.
Replace her with someone who actually knows what they are doing and has real experience doing that job well. Even if the candidate is a straight white make /gasp!
I'm a huge Halo fan. That and Zelda are my two favorite franchises. There are certainly some people who will use this as a chance to console war but I am most interested in Microsoft doing what needs to be done to get Halo on track. It has been incredibly disappointing to watch a series I enjoy fall apart.Halo thread. 90% Sony boys, Craig avatars, and Craig memes.
I think the answer is taking a hard look at the studio and considering a massive restructuring. I imagine that is hard to do both from a HR standpoint as well as from a sunk cost standpoint. You are right though, Phil needs to take a long look at the situation and make some hard choices.I'm way more pro XBox than most of NeoGAF but eventually we have to start looking at Phil Spencer.
What a trainwreck start to a new generation. Had all the time in the world to get this right.
343 has over 500 devs, and Phil ain't one of them. I get it, the quarterback is responsible for the success of the game at the end of the day, but he's a CEO not project leadPhil cant even manage the one franchise that put xbox on the map but sure, lets cheer that he has a blank check to buy out the industry. I never liked gaming that much anyways amirite?
Completion???Guy is leaving after completion of the game (remaining are essentially technical adjustments, and post launch content), how can we turn this into a concern news ?
Well put. This is 343's first project under Phil. A captain needs to put trust in his lieutenants. Phil can't and shouldn't micromanage every studio but sometimes he needs to step in. I don't blame Phil for 343's failure. That said it is certainly time that he gets more involved; I wish it had happened sooner but perhaps this big of a debacle will force some more drastic action.343 has over 500 devs, and Phil ain't one of them.

They're delaying the inevitable with these moves.
No matter how many external teams come to aid 343, Infinite is already set to be catastrophically bad.
Sounds to me that the game was near completion (with release date at end of year) and some people cried because graphics.Completion???
Last time we saw it, it was farrrrr from complete!!!
I loved Halo 2 & 3 but 4 & 5 were not so good and Infinite looks to be the worst yet!!!
This is pretty crazy. Halo 1/2/3 were system sellers. I actually enjoyed halo 4. After that they lost their way IMHO.
Halo was their main thing. They really need to get it together.
