So far, Halo 5 is actually looking to be a monster of a game, and thanks to Aaron Greenberg's latest comments in the Inner Circle podcast, we can get a better idea about just how huge the game is shaping up to be.
"Halo 5 is gonna be huge. It should be one of the biggest entertainment releases of the year if we do our job right. I think what we've got with Master Chief and Locke is a marketer's dream. The game is just super-innovative. I think this is a title that 343 has dreamed of making, and they're innovating in ways that our jaws are dropping."
"It's such a deep story. To me it's like the closest thing to playing in a real movie, you know. I love campaign. I play multiplayer and I enjoy it, but I just love to get deep in the campaign and co-op you know, and Halo was kind of the birth of that, and also at the same time has innovated the multiplayer, so I'm excited with what they're doing with Halo 5, and we'll be revealing more soon."
Interestingly, Greenberg spent a considerable amount of time talking about Halo 5 limited edition consoles, suggesting that something that Halo fans would be excited about will be coming.
"We have a great team that does a lot of cool custom consoles, and we'd love to make them for every title, and the challenge is that our retail partners can't take everyone, we can't manufacture twelve different versions, so we have to kind of pick our bets."
"But I know some of the things we're planning for this Holidays, and I think you'll be pretty pleased with some of the limited edition plans, and there's some other things that we're still finalizing. But we have a lot of great games, and so I'm excited to see where we land. At this point, it's February, so we're not announcing our limited edition hardware at this point, but the teams are gonna have some good stuff, and it's good to hear there's an appetite for more."
I for one cannot wait for Halo 5, and Greenberg is making it sound like an absolute dream game for Halo fans.
