Game:
Campaign is planned to be 3-5 times longer than Halo 4. No more linear , going open world.
Master Chief has gone rogue, has own ship and can visit different planets (6-8 planned). Each planet has several regions with main objectives and several side missions. ( Think of Wings of Liberty or Dawn of War 2 cmapaign)
If true this would be the best Halo game ever....

and there is a ship, and its awesome. Also you can have so many weapons and you can choose, and the AI is so fucking good! also there are like 300,000 enemies on screen ( power of the cloud ) also the soundtrack made me cry, I also saw some new weapons they are awesome and you can level up like an RPG guys its going to be so awesome.
Yeah, it's extremely embarrassingly written and very obvious fan drivel.

Lol that Pastebin is hilarious.

Calculating AI and lighting with tiny data packets from "the Cloud", do people still fall for that shit?

That sounds absurd. Way to good to be true. And who fractures a player base in MP like that. Just make it halo 2 reloaded with no glitches (obviously) and make that halo BF a f2p online MMOFPS

HOLY SHIT. If this is true (and that's a big if, pastebin are about as reliable as Xbox Support), my plans to not buy a One until 2015/16 are all shot to shit.

Goddamn.
"Big if" is an understatement, :lol

Just think about it for a second. 343i are the guys who intentionally made the campaign in Halo 4 a more linear and scripted experience. This rumour literally goes against everything we've seen and heard from 343i in the past. And all on a two year dev cycle? Haha.

This is literally true in the way it was presented, but he is hiding from something else too.
His dignity?

True or not that sounds amazing. I've never being too hot for Halo games although I enjoyed Reach quite a lot (single player), but I think MS/343 can do great things with MC as a character if they wanted.

The Master Chief going rogue and leaving to go do his own thing sounds plausible, i doubt those rumours are true but it sounds great if they are. I didn't really like Halo 4 because of all the horrible choices they made but that sounds good.

"Halo 2 reloaded. No loadouts, no armor abilites and perks..."

Yes, please. I also like the sound of the other mode...I would love epic Battlefield games with the combat of Halo....ahh one can dream until those dreams are crushed with reality.

To be fair - the tech part sounds somewhat savvy and reasonable so it was only 99% fake for me.
The tech part sounds like any random fantasy by someone that has read all the tech rumours and is much too heavily invested into the console wars. Just a concoction of randomness.

I was more talking about the used terms and how most of the more specific things make sense from a general technical standpoint.

The goofiest part is the implication someone with access to Halo 4 alpha code would ALSO have a PS4 dev kit and can port to that. I don't see Sony just giving those to 343i or anyone owned by Microsoft.

Rogue as a term turned me off. But if he was in some way searching ancient sites for a "fix" for Cortona...that could be a VERY interesting story and would explain his break from the military...at least for that game.

But I don't believe it.

Master Chief vs Phoenix Wright confirmed!

After several years of legal action following the destruction that took place upon the Arc, Master Chief has to prove he is not only innocent of the crime of vandalism and disrespecting another culture's religion, he has to prove he is innocent of the murder of cortana!

It's not even full HD? What a travesty.

I do hope this 1920x720p resolution actually looks like 1080p though.

This rumour literally goes against everything we've seen and heard from 343i in the past. And all on a two year dev cycle? Haha. They couldn't even finish H4 in ~3 years.
In fairness, 343i did have starting pains with Halo 4. Newly formed studio, working on bringing the engine left behind by Bungie up to scratch and a whole host of other things. What they achieved with Halo 4 deserves recognition, now if only they had left the multiplayer intact...

Anyway, do I believe this? I want to believe but it's too fanciful and reads too much like a fans wish-list, but entertaining the very remote possibility that it is true sends the mind reeling with thoughts of how great it would be if it were. It would be a real game changer.

And then there's Frankie stirring the pot....
