E3 2011 – Microsoft: Halo 4 Will Get Back To What Halo Is All About

Posted on June 8, 2011 AT 01:51pm

343 Industries’ take on the Halo series will live up to what gamers fell in love with while still bringing new people into the franchise according to Microsoft Game Studios Corporate Vice President, Phil Spencer.

Speaking with OXM he had the following to say on the newest entry to the Halo franchise;

“The key question for me in managing the
studio and the creatives is ‘what is Halo?’, making sure Halo lives up
to what I think gamers fell in love with [playing Combat Evolved],”

“What does that mean? Playing Master
Chief, we kind of lost our way a little bit, I’ll say. And
that’s why I wanted to make sure that at the unveiling of Halo 4, you
knew you were playing Master Chief, that John was back. Because Master
Chief is the John Wayne character of that universe, and that’s who you
want to play.”

“Halo has this interesting mix of open
world, more varied gameplay. Some other of those franchises that I love
have very setpieces which really kind of draw certain dramatic elements
out of it. Halo has the vehicles, the weapon types, the deep fiction –
the fiction around Halo is incredibly deep.”
