For years there has been talk of issues with the management at 343. It isn't surprising to be hearing what we are now.
Sucks because there is so much Halo left. I know a lot of people wondered how they were gonna move past Halo 3, and then Halo 5 lol. But keep in mind that Reach and Combat Evolved both take place at the very end of the war with the Covenant. There is so much that only the books are touching on.
Doing a game with Chief in his early days would be epic. Johnson was there after Harvest. Hell Johnson was one of the first Spartans.
There is so much they can do. Create another studio to handle something else Halo, or just get a studio.
But the Halo output and overall quality from 343 hasn't been what it needs to be.
I think at this point, it isn't the Xbox One holding back Infinite (doubting Infinite was supposed to be next gen at this point), nor is it COVID-19, it is the management of 343 imo.
Fuck it, pay Bungie to develop it alongside Destiny, at least itll get done
