The Spartans look incredible, Sniper and Rockets as well! If their goal is to make this game last 10 years like has been mentioned multiplayer has to have a more classic feel. That is just the cold hard truth. There is a reason why MCC has the largest population.. Multiplayer is the most important aspect of this game they have to get right.
The population of MCC has been lagging behind halo 5 for 5 years, only just recently being given a bump due to the high profile relaunching of the games on PC, and all the updates. At one point in late 2018, MCC was as high as 15 spots behind halo 5 (which is one of those useless facts that my brain just decided to cline on too after I looked it up once). Halo 5 meanwhile hasn’t been given much of any new support in awhile. People follow trends first, game mechanics second.
