A few days ago, Microsoft announced that Raw Thrills and Play Mechanix were building a new arcade Halo experience called "Fireteam Raven". Even though Fireteam Raven is effectively a licensed product, somehow many individuals thought that 343 Industries was building arcade cabinets now. Luckily, Brian Jarrard, the Community Director at 343 Industries, clarified the situation. GameSpot compiled his posts on Twitter.
Jarrard assured fans that Halo 6 — or whatever the game might be called — wasn't impacted by Fireteam Raven because the cabinet is not being manufactured by 343 Industries. He also confirmed that the studio was working on the next major console game. Just like the Halo books and toys, the arcade product wasn't being created instead of the next major installment in the franchise.
Hopefully Microsoft will announce Halo 6 at E3 2018 with proper gameplay footage. Halo 5: Guardians launched in 2015 and the franchise typically follows a three-year development schedule.
If you can't wait for the next Halo game, be sure to check out Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The complication was quite a big deal when it came in 2014. For the first time ever, Master Chief's entire story was available on one console. The game features a remastered Halo 2: Anniversary, along with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4. If you love Halo, or love first-person shooters in general, this is the definitive package to own.
