343 Industries Intends To Stop Numbering Halo Games In The Future

No more numbers for you, Halo franchise!

When 343 Industries took over the Halo series from Bungie they intended to take Master Chief and the franchise in bold new directions. While Halo 4 is the beginning of a new Saga for the series, 343 apparently didn’t want to call it Halo 4.

Studio head Bonnie Ross said the following to OXM (provided by Gamer Headlines):

“At some point, we do want to stop numbering. Especially on Xbox One. If I had my druthers, we wouldn’t have called Halo 4 that – we really look at that game as the start of where [Master Chief]‘s going. At some point we need to drop the number and still [let you] know you’ve got a big story coming.”

Personally, I don’t think having or not having a number makes much of a difference in the grand scheme of things. They probably just don’t want it to get to the point where the number is so high that newcomers feel like they have a ton of catching up to do. Considering Halo 5: Guardians is the first Halo game to have a subtitle since the first one, it could very well end up being the last one with a number in its title.
