If you were hoping that some new information about Halo 6 would be unearthed at this year's E3 during Microsoft's press conference. You'll have to settle for some bad news regarding the next entry in Master Chief's ongoing saga.
According to a post by 343 Industries community manager Brian Jarrard to a comment on Reddit, we won't be seeing any news about Halo 6 at this year's E3. However, Jarrard does mention that you might expect to see something else from the developers at E3 instead. So what can we expect? Jarrard doesn't say. Some speculate that it could be new DLC information for the Halo Wars 2 RTS that came out earlier this year for PC and the Xbox One. Others expect that there might be news about a possible Halo spin-off, which has also been one of Microsoft's go-to options for Xbox fans.
Some people are suspecting that the new game might be an anniversary edition of Halo 3. It's possible, even though Halo 3 was included in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. It would be a tough sell to get people to pay $60 for the same game again that just launched in the collection back in 2014.
Others believe that they may announce something akin to that canceled third-person Halo game that was in development a while back, which was designed for kiddies. The platforming and gunplay were well liked by the community and received a lot of praise. However, at the time franchise head Bonnie Ross mentioned that they could consider investigating something like that in the future.
While the possibility of more Halo could be exciting, some of the fans are getting a bit franchise fatigued. IGN notes that Ross and other heads at 343 have mentioned that all future Halo games would bring back split-screen play, something they received a lot of criticism for removing from Halo 5 back in 2015.
