Halo 6 at this year’s E3 was sounding like a complete possibility. Microsoft getting ready to reveal their new console and all, Halo being their flagship game. It seemed, if anything, a possibility. Well, that’s not happening. According to Brian Jarrard who goes by the name of Sk7ch343 on Reddit, Halo 6 is not going to be at E3.
Jarrard says, “I’ll slip into my Dreamcrusher persona for a minute in the name of realistic expectation: We’ve said this already but we’ll have a little something at E3 but it’s not related to the next major entry in the franchise.”
With Master Chief starting to slip into the conversation over the past few weeks and the Scorpio reveal, it was seeming like maybe Microsoft was priming the pump for a Halo 6 reveal alongside the console. Just a couple of weeks ago, 343 Industries said that Halo 6 would see Master Chief return as the main focus of the story.
It’s also probably gonna take them some time to work out those sweet sweet microtransactions. Halo 5 made more money in microtransactions in six months than any Halo DLC ever made.
While addressing the community, Jarrard also put to bed rumors of a Halo 3 remake. “OMG Stop. There is no Halo 3 anniversary,” he said later in the thread.
So what does that leave for Microsoft to show at E3 to get Halo fans excited? How about a 4K Spartan Strike? Fingers crossed that isn’t their “little something.” Hopefully their little something is a taste of what the Halo series is going to look like going forward with the Scorpio.
Either way, Jarrard has dashed any hope for a new Halo 6 this year.
