Alright some of you in this thread don’t seem to have you facts straight let me clarify them for you. There aren’t many previous Bungie workers working for 343 now. It is in reality only about 2-3 including Frankie. (Who is just a community guy)
Also I never said 343 is not making Halo 4, I only said what they haven’t and are not going to make for H
No, I am not ignorant for refusing to buy a game from a company that has never even made a map pack for any game before. (Let alone a real game) Sure some of them have experience making games before but that doesn’t mean anything. I would have to have a lot of people tell me it is good before I buy it for $60. (Or maybe I’d rent it… It really depends on if I think it is worth it.)
But 343 is ignorant to believe everyone who likes halo is automatically going to start loving them now that they are making it. They need to show what they can do some how so we can ahve a taste what they are like.
Finally, All of you who said “I know this game will be awesome” need to stop the butt-kissing. It is completely ignorant to say a game is going to be awesome when it is from a company who has made 0 games/add ons to games. Also Saying they are all “Veterans” at making video games is ignorant. We do not know who many of the 343 workers really are. (Video games take a lot of people to create)
P.S specifically @call911uneedhelp - They have never actually even payed a company to make a game for them yet. Of course they are paying Certain Affinity to make CEA but that doesn’t mean anything. Why?
All they are doing is copying and pasting what Bungie originally made.
A company terrible at making games can easily pay a good company to make the game for them. so just because they can pay another company to make good games for them doesn’t mean they them selves are good. Example: I can pay Kobe Bryant to play basketball for me but that does not mean I am good at playing basketball.
> > When is 343 going to actually make something themselves?
> 343’s internal team is making Halo 4. They made that quite clear in this episode of the 343 sparkast.
> > I spending $60 just to see what a company is like? (for Halo 4) I think not.
> So, you never buy any game made by a new studio? Even a studio made up of as many industry veterans as 343? You’re acting a little ignorant here. Halo is Microsoft’s most important franchise. Do you think they’re going to hand development of the next major Halo title over to a group of rookies?
