Halo 6 News! Halo 6 will have Split-Screen and Black Undersuits!
At yesterday’s DICE Summit in Las Vegas, Bonnie Ross took to the stage to talk about world building. During her speech she talked about some of the lessons learned when they took the helm of the Halo franchise.
One of the painful lessons, aside from Halo MCC’s multiplayer and launch woes, was the decision to remove split-screen for Halo 5. Since then the community has been vocal and Bonnie Ross announced that all future Halo FPS titles will have split-screen. Expect Halo 6, or whatever the next FPS title is to be called, to launch around fall 2018. Keep your eyes out this E3 in June as many expect a teaser… or maybe something along the lines of Anniversary like treatment (*cough* Halo 3 *cough*)
To coincide with this announcement, Halo community manager Ske7ch took to Waypoint and reiterated the news Bonnie Ross had said earlier in the day, and he contributed his confirmation that “black undersuits” would be accounted for moving forward.
For those unaware, black undersuits have been in high-demand ever since 343 Industries replaced them with coloured undersuits on our Spartans. Many fans share their distaste and often find it harder to distinguish the many armour variants easily when the under suits match the colour of the armour above. It’s a minor thing, but a wildly hot topic among the passionate Halo fans.

Introducing Blitz, an all-new mode for Halo Wars 2 where tactical combat meets card-based strategy. Experience it on Xbox One and Windows 10 with the free Blitz Multiplayer Beta January 20th – 30th
The Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta will officially begin on Friday, Jan. 20 and is slated to run through Jan. 30, 2017. The Blitz Beta will take place on the map “Proving Grounds,” and will offer 1v1, 2v2 and 3v3 gameplay via matchmaking on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One. One thing we’re particularly excited about is the fact that all of the Faction Leaders and Blitz cards that will be available in the full game at launch on Feb. 17 will be included and available to play and experiment with during the beta, offering wide breadth of strategic and gameplay options. You’ll also find a series of daily and weekly challenges to participate in as we work to stress test those systems.
As a special incentive and thank you, everyone who participates in the Blitz Beta will be awarded up to two free in-game Blitz card packs in the final retail version when it ships in February. You’ll earn one card pack just for logging into the Blitz Beta and another one after you’ve completed your first match. So jump in and get a leg up on the competition before launch in February, help us test aspects of the game AND earn yourself two bonus card packs for Halo Wars 2 come launch!
Blitz is certainly one of the more exciting aspects of Halo Wars 2, but we’ve got plenty more goodness coming in the full game on Feb. 21 including a robust campaign (single and co-op), additional MP modes (like Domination, Strongholds and Deathmatch), and Blitz Firefight.
