        There are ideological principles for why he wouldn't do that. Even suggesting he might indicates you completely misinterpreted both his and Bungie's stories.

        Nylund tried to work at 343, and they rejected him for Bonnie Ross

        Eric has done nothing for Halo. His books were always non canon and Bungie hated them.

          Yep, how did they suck the soul of it Halo? It makes no sense.

          343 retconned Bungie's lore when they wrote Halo 4

          >Joe Staten/Original lore (CE, H2, H3, ODST, Contact Harvest, Wars)
          Humans are Forerunner. The game came before the story, so they just needed a reason why only humans can activate Halo and why the Covenant wants to kill them. They are Reclaimers because they are reclaiming their old shit. Staten's writing, especially for characters like 343 Guilty Spark and Gravemind, showcase his narrative pretty strongly, as well as Contact Harvest where Mendicant Bias blares it at the Prophets, triggering the war.

          >Frank O'Connor/343i Lore (H4 and up)

          So now 343i wants to make their own trilogy, the Reclaimer Saga, with a cohesive lore backing it. Frank and Kevin Grace hand the reigns to author Greg Bear, who writes the Forerunner Saga. Humans are 100% definitely not Forerunners. Of course, this now contradicts a lot of stuff in the H3 Terminals, so we're back to "these characters are insane/unreliable".

          >the Ur-Didact performs a brevet mutation on Bornstellar essentially making him a copy of himself. This mutation gave Bornstellar all of the Didact’s thoughts and memories. Bornstellar is now known as the Iso-Didact
          >Bornstellar rebirths a proto human as 343 Guilty Spark. We also find out that the Librarian has been busy placing imprints(gei) in many people
          >Bornstellar tells of another geas that he suspects the Librarian imprinted somewhere on the Human race.
          >Reclaimer, when I indexed mankind for repopulation, I hid seeds from the Didact. Seeds which would lead to an eventuality. Your physical evolution. Your combat skin. Even your ancilla, Cortana. You are the culmination of a thousand lifetimes of planning.
          >Master Chief is the one that the Librarian placed this imprint on.
          >Iso-Didact is the one who takes his place and ends up firing the Halo array to wipe out the Flood

          What were 343 thinking?

      It was already in decline with Reach, Modern Warfare had overtake Halo 3 even before that. 343 sped it up immensely but it was already over.

    They removed the multiplayer lobby system that had been there since halo 2. A lobby system which call of duty copied and still uses today.

    Because it's out of the hands of its original passionate creators and now in the hands of greedy executives who see the IP as a way to milk moronic consumers like you. How do you not know this?

    The sad thing is that it really could have been halfway decent if they'd have just kept the helmet on and had Steve Downes do the voiceover. Hell they already had Jen Taylor as Cortana, people would watch just for those 2 together alone. The CGI was absolute dogshit for the most part too, god knows where that budget went.

    The lead creator for this show is an ex-employee of 343 that was recently fired. Her vision for Halo is what this show is. Yes, she is borderline insane and now Paramount is stuck with her via her contract.
    Most of these problems come from Bonnie Ross hiring people that Hate Halo from back in 2012. This was done to "increase creativity" and "make their own image" on the game. It effects have been lingering ever since on the game like a cancer.
    However most of these people were recently fired. In fact all of them were. 343 is pretty clean now, but it will take time for the series to heal, and in the mean time we will have to endure contractual projects like this disaster of a TV show.

    At least we aren't Gears of War. Xbox really fricks with IPs doesn't it?

      I hope Microsoft guts the entire xbox and games division and only keeps a skeleton crew to keep the servers for AOE2 and Halo Master collection going.

    or
    >hire people who don't play video games
    >tell their own original sci-fi story with halo characters
    >have master chief frick a human covenant POW while cortana watches
    it was always going to go one of two ways

      Just now, like it's shocking news. I bought a mint copy of Halo 4 a couple months after release for 50 cents at a yard sale. Xbox games have always devalued quickly, because the consumer base does not care

    Bungie was a better caretaker of the lore. 343 doesn't seem to give a frick.

    Call of Duty killed it back in 2009, it has never recovered. Halo was a product of its time and needs to be let go.

    Singleplayer wise it's because the story's been told. Master Chief beat the Covenant, the Flood was destroyed, mankind goes on. The end. Halo 4 onwards is the franchise going
    >Yeah, but WHAT IF ANCIENT EVIL AND FORERUNNERS ARE BAD NOW AND THERE'S THESE GUYS CALLED THE ENDLESS AND-
    And nothing. The story is over, the credits have rolled. There is no "and then". There doesn't need to be.
    Multiplayer-wise it had its time. 4 tried to copy cod and it lost it's identity because of it.
