Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has some serious concerns about the next Halo game and the lack of information from the developers at 343 Industries.
The biggest streamer on Twitch, who played Halo professionally for a number of years before switching to full-time content production, appears to be particularly concerned about the future of the game.
“There are a lot of things that scare me about this new halo, man,” said the streaming superstar. “Number one: no footage yet. At all. Anywhere. And their trailer was just the map.
“I feel like the only reason they give so little information is just so that people buy the game…”
“I feel like they’re doing not what they could. They could do so much more to hype Halo right now. I feel like they haven’t been leaking anything… you know what I mean?”
Shortly after, Ninja expanded on those comments, saying: “Listen man, Halo has ‘waited to surprise everyone’ so much. Honestly dude, at this point, I feel like the only reason they even do that now, and this is like a stretch man, I feel like the only reason they give so little information is just so that people buy the game – hoping that it’s going to be a good Halo.
“Like I feel like that might actually be legitimate strategy. I could be an idiot right now and talking out of my butt, but it’s like ‘we don’t tell anyone know what it looks like so that, when it comes out, they buy it to see if it’s good, and then it won’t be! And we’ve already sold millions of copies by then’.”
Halo 6, which will be called Halo Infinite, was originally revealed at E3 2018 and will be a continuation of the Master Chief story, but little else is known about the game.
It has now been over three months since that announcement, and the cinematic trailer that accompanied it, and some players and fans are beginning to get impatient as they wait for more information and in-game footage.
