Halo 5 received some criticism over its narrative because a lot of the campaign forced players to play as Spartan Locke over Master Chief. This is expected to change for the release of Halo 6.
He said: “We very much realized that people wanted Master Chief’s story of Halo 5 We definitely marketed in a way that we hoped was going to bring surprise, but for some fans and certainly fans of Master Chief, it was a huge disappointment because they wanted more Chief.”
He went on to say that Halo 6 is not expected to bring in any more new playable characters. He also said he heard from a lot of people that they wanted more Master Chief.
This is a safe sign that Halo 6 will feature more of the masked hero and won’t focus too much on Spartan Locke. The game is currently in development, although no release date has been given yet.
