Halo developer 343 Industries has confirmed that they won’t be showing off a sequel to 2015’s Halo 5: Guardians at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
343 community manager Brian Jarrard revealed the news in a reddit post, saying that while the studio will have something to show fans at E3, it won’t be Halo 6.
“I’ll slip into my Dreamcrusher persona for a minute in the name of realistic expectations: We’ve said this already but we’ll have a little something at E3 but it’s not related to the next major entry in the franchise,” Jarrard said.
So far, all we really know about Halo 6 is that it’s been in development for about a year and that 343 is aiming to address major criticisms that were thrown at Halo 5, most notably the game’s lack of split-screen multiplayer. Franchise director Frank O’Connor also confirmed recently that the game will focus on Master Chief, rather than other playable characters.
