Halo is one of the biggest video game franchises ever made, with Master Chief similarly being one of the most iconic video game characters.
Halo: FireTeam Raven is the latest game to be announced under the title, but it will focus on being an arcade instalment rather than a "real" game. Although it's great for fans to sink their teeth into something brand new, and there's no doubt they'll be exited to play, some have wondered whether these kind of projects shift the focus away from the core Halo games.
In comes Halo community manager Brian Jarrard. He noticed that some fans were starting to ask questions and get uneasy with the whole situation, so he took it to Twitter to shed some light on the matter.
He said: "Fireteam Raven has zero impact on the 343 development team which has already been working on the next console game. H:FR is built by an external arcade developer. Just like the Halo books or toys aren't being created instead of the next Halo game. Plenty to go around"
"I get that ppl are just super eager for any info on the next "real" game, but I don't get the blind outrage at a totally separate cool thing that a lot of ppl will enjoy Hmm that makes me sound old."
Although he doesn't exactly say it, it's clear to see that the next regular Halo game is in the making, or at least is going to come in the future, and it's definitely getting all the attention it needs.
With E3 being just around the corner, it could be the perfect place to tease something about 'Halo 6' or whatever they decide to call it.Three years seems to be a good indication in the Halo franchise for when the next in line is set to be released, and with Halo 5 being launched in October 2015, there is definitely a case for it to happen at some point in 2018.
