New Halo Arcade Game has "Zero Impact" on Next Halo Xbox Game, Says 343

New Halo Arcade Game has "Zero Impact" on Next Halo Xbox Game, Says 343

Just in case you were worried about the next Halo on Xbox being stalled by Fireteam Raven, don't be.

The next Halo on Xbox (be it Halo 6 or whatever 343 is making) will not be impacted by the development of Halo: Fireteam Raven, 343 Industries has clarified. The news of a Halo arcade game had led some fans to wonder if its existence would push back development of a new Halo console game.

343 Community Manager Brian Jarrard tweeted to reassure Halo fans that the arcade game won't impact the development team working on the next Xbox Halo game.

"Fireteam Raven has zero impact on the 343 development team which has already been working on the next console game," said Jarrard. "H:FR is built by an external arcade developer. Just like the Halo books or toys aren’t being created _instead of_ the next Halo game. Plenty to go around."

Fireteam Raven is being developed by arcade game manufacturer Raw Thrills in collaboration with 343. Raw Thrills has made arcade games based on Batman, Aliens, Jurassic Park, The Walking Dead, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so it has plenty of experience handling well known and much loved properties.

343 is currently working on fixing Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which released with a lot of issues back in 2014. Although it collaborated with Creative Assembly for 2017's Halo Wars 2, the last mainline Halo game, Halo 5, arrived in 2015. There's a high chance we'll see some Halo news during the Xbox E3 2018 press conference on June 10.
