In Response To: Is the early H5 Beta an unexpected hint? (DEEP NNN)

: What if 343i is planning to release H5's multiplayer early?

: I've seen the population trends for H3, Reach and H4. There was significant
: increase in multiplayer population when North American summer break
: starts. It's regular as rain.

: It seems reasonable that a new multiplayer release would sell well around
: June 1st. Just in time for summer break and grading presents.

: Then campaign would sell as it always does, for the Christmas break. Campaign
: has been the Halo series strong selling point over the years.

: I doubt it will happen but the stars are lining up a bit for something
: completely new.

So you're thinking 2 separate full game releases for Halo 5?

MS would want full game price for both - I can't see fans paying double the price for what has been, in every previous release, 1 game.

Plus MS would no doubt later bundle the 2 together in a 'aren't we nice - now you don't have to switch discs' way and then charge the same again.

It's a dark road to go down this route and it would put a lot of people off purchasing, me included.
