I'm gonna start this by both saying that one, I think 343 is a solid company that has done more good for the halo series than bad, implementating new gameplay styles in order to allow halo to survive in the new generation of fast paced FPS gameplay is no easy task; and secondly I'd like to credit TheActMan for mentioning something similar in a video that inspired this forum post. Now onto what I mean by saying 343 will botch the flood or more accurately, why 343 should wait until Halo 7 to give the flood a true, real return. The reason I say this is because 343 is expected to cover the Banished, The Spirit of Fire, the Created, The Unsc, the Swords of Sanghelios, AND the flood in this new game, now that is a HUGE task for a writing team with only 3 years to create a compelling and satisfying narrative, but it's down right impossible when only about a year goes into the writing, the other time is spent making the code and trying to get it to run properly, found graphic design, character modeling, sound recording, and the hardest part, get the freakin engine to run the code. And that opens up something else i want to real quickly mention, nowadays triple A Andrew mainstream games are hated on more and more and more for having sloppy and repetitive gameplay or storytelling. And a lot of people love to blame the developers, but the sad truth is that the developers are doing the best they can with the very limited time they are given, I mean I know that sounds crazy, 3 years is not enough??? But the fact of the matter is that 3 years in between game titles was a system that both worked and made sense way back when games where simple and primal compared to what's expected of games nowadays. I mean every game should get more and more next gen and require more and more processing power and time, but the socially acceptable time for game development has remained the same, if games like Halo 6 are gonna be able to tell a good story and deliver next gen gameplay, they need to be allowed more time to produce and craft the games, okay that's all from me I'm sorry if there are any typos I didn't catch.
