343 backtracks, says NO 4 player split screen

Hopefully they will have 4 player split screen multiplayer.

Correct me if I am wrong. But no Halo game has ever had 4 player Split Screen for Campaign(apart from using a glitch in Halo Reach, not sure if that glitch exists in other Halo games). It’ll be the same as previous Halo games, meaning 2 player Split Screen for Campaign and 4 player Split Screen for Multiplayer.

So this is one area where I think all of us “old” and “salty” critics really should cut 343 a break. Four player screen for campaign was never a thing in previous games. It doesn’t need to be now - definitely not worth the pain (and performance sacrifices) to deliver that. Zero value add.

I actually wouldn’t mine if split screen was removed from campaign entirely. On that front (especially at this point following that demo), I am in full support of whatever needs to be done for campaign to show the best it can.

They confirmed nothing about MP yet.

This beating around the bush makes me believe it’ll probably only be 2 for MP as well.

4-player splitscreen in 4k at 60FPS sounded unrealistic at best anyways.
That’s too much even for the XSX.

Then the XSX is not really the “most powerful console ever”.

Not surprising, but it’s all so tiresome

While not technically wrong at all you could do campaign through a system link and 2 TV’s with halo 3. Two peeps per screen. Good times. First time I beat the game was on such a setup.

Are you saying the PS5 would be able to do that? Because no.

There was also a glitch that allowed 4 player split screen coop in Halo 3

a powerful PC would have to work hard to do it too.

But it is the most powerful console ever.

I guess we’ll be able to do that for Campaign on Series X(and Xbox One too) as well. Set up system link and 2 TVs and have 2 players per screen to play the campaign. No?

H3 had 4 player split-screen, no glitch required.

EDIT: No, wait. I think I’m having a Mandela effect here… It was definitely 4 player split-screen, but only in mp and two players split-screen campaign coop. Damn, I’m getting old. Sorry about that!

For Campaign? That’s interesting. I know all Halo games had 4 player Split Screen for Multiplayer(excluding 5, of course). But I was always under the impression that Campaign only had 2 player Split Screen, maybe because I was remembering Reach too much.

No no, I just miss remembered it. I just corrected myself! :stuck_out_tongue:

You know I’m not sure the last thing I sister linked was back in the reach days I’ve never tried with this gen console. Mayburrry?

Did Reach have 4 player split screen campaign?

I don’t care about campaign, I just hope MP has 4 player split screen…which I doubt due to 343’s beating around the bush.

Even I haven’t tried it with current gen. But I am sure some option is available.

No. Only 2 player split screen campaign. But it did have a glitch using which we could play 4 player split screen in campaign as well. But it wasn’t designed for it, meaning there were some issues and crashes while playing it that way. What I didn’t know was that Halo 3 also had that kind of a glitch.

They haven’t announced anything about MP yet. It makes sense that they would only announce split screen for campaign after the campaign reveal.

I mean if you trust IGN, they said 4 player SS was confirmed on a mixer stream on the 21st . The article has been updated since the correction about coop so maybe?

I believe that Mixer stream was in 2018, wasn’t it?
