Halo Fans Rejoice: New Campaign Reportedly in Development at 343 Industries
Good news for Halo fans around the world! 343 Industries is reportedly developing a new Halo campaign. 343 Industries is the gaming studio that took over the Halo franchise after Bungie Studios’ departure in 2012. Rumors have persisted for years that a new Halo game was in the works, and it appears those rumors may finally be true.
The news was first reported by Brad Sams, a former editor of Thurrott.com. Sams, who has long been a trusted source in the video game industry, said he had “sources that indicated a new Halo campaign is in development at 343 Industries.”
While there has been no official announcement from 343 Industries, this news is sure to get longtime Halo fans excited. The original Halo trilogy of games, developed and overseen by Bungie Studios, were critically acclaimed. Halo: Combat Evolved, released in 2001, and Halo 3, released in 2007, were both incredibly successful in part because of their immersive campaigns.
It’s not known what type of game 343 Industries is developing, or how much of a departure from Bungie’s titles it will be. Could it be a remake of one of the classic titles? A spiritual successor to the original trilogy? Or something entirely new? Whatever the case, fans are sure to be eagerly awaiting more news from the studio.
It has been a few years since 343 Industries put out a Halo title with the release of Halo 5: Guardians in 2015. Since then, they have released a few spin-offs, including Halo Wars 2 and Halo: Fireteam Raven. But fans have been yearning for a return to the classic style of storytelling found in the original trilogy of games.
Only time will tell what lies in store for the Halo series, but from the looks of it, this might just be the news fans have been patiently waiting for.
