Split-Screen is Coming Back in Future Halo Games
343 Industries releases the Halo 5: Guardians without the split-screen which was the best feature of the Halo games. but now the feature is coming back to the franchise.
343 Industries head Bonnie Ross recently confirmed that split-screen functionality will be coming back in future Halo titles.
According to Ross, “I would say for any FPS going out forward we will always have split screen going forward…”
She also said that Halo 5: Guardians and its modification was a painful occurrence for the company. “We’ve also had a lot of learnings along the way,” Ross said. “You know when we fell down with the multiplayer launch of [Halo: The Master Chief Collection], or when we didn’t put split screen in with Halo 5. I think it’s especially hurtful for the community and for us. It erodes trust with the community, as the community is part of our world building.”
Halo 5’s creative director Josh Holmes said that removing split-screen was “one of the most difficult ones we’ve ever had to make as a studio.”
