Phil Spencer Teases New Halo Game
Microsoft’s Phil Spencer has teased a brand new Halo game for the next-gen. This is just in time as the Xbox One will be released tomorrow. Microsoft has yet to reveal any information on post launch games, but Spencer has confirmed there will be plenty of new games in the near future to play.
Microsoft wants to ensure they do not repeat their past mistakes by having a dry period after a console launch, like with the Xbox 360.
Spencer teased that a new Halo game would eventually land in our laps for the Xbox systems. Judging by his statement, we may see the new game within the next 24 months or so, which is still a long period of time to wait. He said:
Rolling into the next holiday, we haven’t announced everything that’s coming yet. But that lineup from first party also looks strong. I don’t mind saying that on 360, I think we had a gap. We had our launch lineup … and a couple Japanese games, but in that first half of the following year, we were a little dry from a first-party standpoint.
But I look at the next 18 to 24 months, and really on a month by month basis, you’re going to have something you can go out and play. It’s not really a portfolio plan that way, but when I look at the way the portfolio is laying out … I think people are going to be happy with the lineup that’s coming. And I haven’t even mentioned when Halo is coming or some of the big mega franchises.
Are you excited for a new Halo game? A familiar armored face on the Xbox One could bring in huge sales.
