Put the energy swords and battle rifles down Spartans, Halo 6 is not going to be at E3. While it is confirmed to be in development for Windows 10, Halo fans are going to have to wait a little bit longer for the next chapter in Master Chief’s story.
See what is most definitely coming out this year with our list of upcoming PC games.
In a post over on the Halo subreddit, 343 community manager Brian Jarrad was forced to “slip into his Dreamcrusher persona” and inform fans that while 343 will feature at Microsoft’s E3 press conference, “it is not related to the next major entry in the franchise.” There will be a “little something” to tie Halo fans over for the rest of 2017, but don’t expect any bombshell announcements.
As for the “little something”, who knows what it could be. With Microsoft pushing for all future first party titles to be released on both Windows 10 and Xbox One, there is the possibility of 343 retroactively bringing Halo 5 and the Master Chief Collection to PC. However, seeing as the Master Chief Collection still isn’t completely fixed on console, I doubt we’ll see it making it to PC soon. If you’re looking for your Halo fix on PC, the fan-made Installation 01 looks like your best bet for playing a modern Halo game within the next year or so.
When Halo 6 does arrive, we do know that it will refocus attention back on Master Chief after the poor reception of Spartan Locke sharing the main character limelight in Halo 5: Guardians. It will also see the return of split-screen play, which will have many Halo veterans breathing a sigh of relief.
