Halo – Master Chief is here to stay says 343 Industries
The new makers of Halo, 343 Industries will not kill off or get rid of Master Chief in future Halo games, but they do want to explore other options.
In an interview with Polygon, 343′s Kiki Wolfkill (what an awesome name) said it was more important for Master Chief to return in Halo 4 after being absent from Halo ODST and Halo Reach.
He’s always going to be a pretty critical component of Halo and the game experiences. I would hope that we could also build strength and investment in other characters, for no other reason than that’s part of what makes the universe interesting,” she said.
“Master Chief’s not going away, but we need to be able to give people more connection points.”
343 loves the work they did on Halo 4, but they feel its the “first step” in a long process of trying to live up to the franchise.
“How we look at it is ‘Where do we want to be in ten years? What are the stories we want to tell?’” Wolfkill said.
“We have started to flesh out broad strokes of a few different arcs that are interesting. There could be opportunities where exploring a different game genre makes sense or exploring a different linear format makes sense. If the medium fits what we want to do, then we’ll definitely consider it. If there’s a great idea we get energized around [it].”More From Playeressence Call of Duty Black Ops 2 PlayStation Vita Needs Buy Wii U, Get Previous Troll Needs New Marketing Owners eShop Games?
