Halo 5: Guardians‘ was a hit with the fans, minus one major flaw that has been taken away from a majority of games now a days.
Halo fans were not pleased with lack of split screen. The absence of this feature, long held as sacred by the community, caused a great deal of ire to be aimed at Microsoft and 343 Industries. But that won’t happen again, because Halo 6 and every other 343-developed game will have split screen going forward.
Studio head Bonnie Ross confirmed the news today at DICE 2017. She called the decision to leave out splitscreen from Halo 5 “painful” for the company. “It erodes trust with the community,” she stated. “We’ve had a lot of learnings from that, and I would say for any FPS going out forward we will always have split screen going forward.”
