As we already know, Microsoft will not have a Halo 6 presentation at next month's E3 event. The gaming company will use the conference to unveil its much-awaited Project Scorpio console, which is touted as the most powerful console ever. However, some fans are hoping there we will be some revelations regarding Halo 6.
On Reddit, Community manager Brian Jarrad emphasized that Halo 6 won't appear at the annual trade fair. On the other hand, developer 343 Industries teased that they have "a little something" for fans at the event, but it is "not related" to the next major entry in Halo franchise.
Some are saying that there could still be some revelation even though Halo 6 is not present in E3. Jarrad's statement about some sort of Halo presence at the event has led to a number of theories from gamers around the world. Paul Tassi of Forbes says Microsoft might give announcements about Halo 5 standalone DLC or Halo 3 Anniversary Edition. There are also rumors that Microsoft's alleged collaboration with Steven Spielberg for a Halo series will be unveiled at the event.
Meanwhile, tech experts believe Microsoft and 343 are taking the time to polish Halo 6, that's why they decided not to announce the game at E3 2017. Also, we will certainly see the release of the game next year because of the imminent launching of Project Scorpio, which is Microsoft's major reveal this year.
In addition, we have found that the developers are busy making significant improvements in Halo 6. After criticisms in Halo 5, the next entry will bring Master Chief closer to the center of the story and action. Also, expect developers will bring back split-screen features, which is a longtime staple of the franchise that was removed in Halo 5: Guardians.
Master Chief and Split-screen are two of the most requested features in Halo 6. There might be more adjustments to come as developers are evaluating feedback and comments from Halo franchise's growing market. It is safe to say that Halo 6 might be released in 2018, giving designers and developers ample to enhance the game and add the demands of gamers.
Meanwhile, let's take a look at the specs of Xbox Scorpio, which could be released together with Halo 6. This powerful console will have a GPU that is 4.6 times more powerful than the current Xbox One. It will also support 4K video gaming.
