At this point I don't even care if it does. We just need a new Halo game. I don't understand how this gap has happened but its killing this franchise.

What if...

 

...the wait was designed to let the last of the real Halo fans lose the final bit of interest and move on, leaving only sprintyboi fans?

They're just young and have shitloads of time. When Halo 2/3/R came out I had sooo much free time to play. 

Now I have very little being an "adult" or whatever.

i am hopeful that the poor playerbase numbers and fan backlash against h4/h5 has led 343 to see the error in forcing their view on halo and they scrapped a lot of previous advanced movment work to give us a more classic style game. if thats the case, then i'll take a long delay so that the devs arent in a state of perpetual crunch and we get a great game out of the gate.

i still wish the hcs was running their own circuit alongside the grassroots events to retain pros and viewership though. h3 throwback, especially if the new game resembles h3 movement, is a huge opportunity to showcase and work out the kinks in their esport division

I, for one, appreciate having a bit longer of a gap between being incredibly disappointed with a new Halo game.

I used to feel like this until now. Im in desperate need for a new Halo game.

Can anyone explain how Gears outlasted Halo 5? (From an esports perspective)

Correct me if I'm wrong but H5 had more money and a bigger player base to work with right? 

Also correct me if I'm wrong but the latest Gears tournament had a decent amount of viewers?

 

Fuck me - I see this H3 is a breath of fresh air stuff but literally no one watches it, or shows up to play (see Dreamhack Dallas). 

H5 was a decent game (as much as I complained) but I really feel like settings, maps and content never even got off the ground. 

 

What is Gears doing?

Having an entire series who's core gameplay loop hasn't changed nor, on the whole, chased trends.

They fucked up Judgement then immediately course corrected.  Halo has been fucked up for 3 games now with some far-less-than-full course correction in H5.  Plus i don't think Gears blew a huge budget on a single championship like Halo did.
