343 Industries’ Studio Head Kiki Wolfkill and Franchise Director Frank O’Connor have spoken about fan reaction to Halo 5: Guardians, and their plans for Halo 6.
When Halo 5 was released back in 2015, it was well received by critics, however there was some fan outcry over the relative lack of Master Chief in the main campaign. O’Connor and Wolfkill acknowledged this in a recent interview with GamesTM magazine (via WCCFTech).
“We very much realized that people wanted Master Chief’s story of Halo 5,” said O’Connor. “We definitely marketed in a way that we hoped was going to bring surprise, but for some fans and certainly fans of Master Chief, it was a huge disappointment because they wanted more Chief.”
