Head of Xbox Says Halo 5 Multiplayer is One of the Best in the Series

Recommended Posts

 

What are the thoughts on his statement? I just don't see how a game that shipped with no content and fails to feel like a Halo game could be touted as the best.

 

This makes me feel as though Halo 6 will continue the enhanced mobility trend of Halo 5.

Well he's not gonna say it sucks, is he?

 

Frankie already confirmed that Halo 5 is going to be used as a base going forward rather than reinvent the wheel again.

He was asked a question about the campaign and said it on his own initiative. Nobody even asked him about MP.

And? Despite what most people around here think, it's the first time in a while we've got a decent MP game. Obviously there's some shaky stuff that sucks like automatics, poor post-content, Warzone balance, etc but the game itself was much better after Reach and Halo 4. 

 

In the end, it's one dudes opinion and he just happens to be the head of Xbox.

Would you happen to have the link to Frankie talking about Halo 6?

I'll dig it up but it was something along the lines of that Halo's MP going forward isn't going to see another drastic re-work like Halo 3 to Reach or Reach to H4. They're going to build upon it and make it better than what we currently have.

 

EDIT: Got it.

I agree, halo 5 multiplayer is one of the best in the series. It can be improved in ways obviously, but let's be honest the multiplayer is pretty great overall. 

 

Watching those close games in Vegas last weekend between the teams trying to qualify was some of the best halo I've ever watched even including some of those close mlg h3 finals.

Well what else is he gonna say?

 

"Halo 5 sucks. It launched with no social or forge or splitscreen or lan and radar in competitive. Luls! #BuyXboxOne. SPENCER OUT!!!"

 

Lol of course not. Its a softball PR interview, not 60 Minutes haha. I really disagree with him, but have no issue with what he said.

So, H3A confirmed? In all seriousness though, H6 could be really good if they just remove radar from comp and do some slight tweaking to sprint, autos, and abilities.

and if he said it sucks, you would just harass him over not putting the proper people at 343 to make a good game / fix the game. There's no winning for him. Even if he doesnt deserve to win, he's still a human and no one is going to bring unneeded torment upon themselves.

It's politics. 

 

No, really, it's literally the exact same thing as politics. 

 

Everything you hate about politicians and politics can be applied here.

What was the context of this post?  Because judging solely on the content of the post, without the context, I don't see anything that leads me to believe he's referring to future Halo games.  "Halo 5's core MP is a thing that would be refined and tuned in the future" seems to be referring to the future of Halo 5.  Of course, if it was in the middle of a discussion about future Halo games, that's an entirely different story, which is why I'm curious.

Right I share your same concern.

Btw, loved the video.  I think Multi posted it somewhere else a week ago.  I almost stopped watching before the end.  Glad I didn't, lol.

I've seen some freaking intense games of Tee Ball too.  Doesn't mean Tee Ball is anywhere near the same level as Baseball.

It was six pages in on a topic about how Halo 5's active players is higher than Halo 3's. He doesn't reply to anyone directly so it's kind of hard to tell but a few people were debating the usual classic Halo is better than Halo 5. 

 

It could go either way but even so, I don't see why they'd radically change the gameplay again if they believe they hit gold with Halo 5.

I could actually see this being true.  H3 a year and a half after launch had already been soundly dethroned by COD as the king of the console shooter.  However, COD today is pretty dead so there is less competition.

If the population of Halo 5 is so good why is 343 unwilling to fix matchmaking where Teams match other Teams and players searching alone match other players searching alone. The keep trying to tweak the ranking system to truly represent skill, yet won't fix the biggest problem with the whole system.

I enjoy Halo 5 and probably have more playtime than Halo 3 already tbh.. I think my Halo 2 hours are more than all others combined though

I'm not sure why there's controversy over this. He's the head of Xbox and isn't going to talk shit about the game even if he personally hates it.
