Halo 5: Guardians drew quite a bit of fire over its relative lack of action from the franchise's signature protagonist, Master Chief. In a new interview with GamesTM magazine (via Eurogamer), Halo director Frank O'Connor has acknowledged the problem alongside the promise of more Master Chief in Halo 6.
Speaking on Halo 5, O'Connor said:
Turning towards Halo 6, O'Connor hints that the iconic Master Chief will play a much more prominent role in the story:
Halo 6 currently doesn't have a release date, an O'Connor indicated it won't come this year, confirming that 343 doesn't have a triple-A game coming out this holiday. That said, it's entirely possible we could still see an announcement or teaser before the year is out. Either way, it sounds like fans of Master Chief have a lot to look forward to.
