343 Industries’ boss Frank O’Connor has responded to fan concerns over the length of Halo 4.
After we all found out that the achievement list pointed to the game containing just eight missions, O’Connor explained that this didn’t reflect how long each mission would be.
Posting as ‘Stinkles’ on NeoGaf, he wrote that the “Number of missions has no bearing on the length of the campaign. It’s a Halo sized campaign. PLUS Spartan Ops etc.”
343 Industries’ designer David Ellis also talked about the length of Halo 4′s missions. Ellis claimed that “[Spartan Ops] season alone is longer than [Halo 3: ODST]. Spartan Ops and Campaign are completely separate teams. As Frank mentioned earlier, the main campaign is substantial and will compare favorably with previous entries in the series.”
In case your wondering, Spartan Ops is a new game mode in Halo 4 and will replace the Firefight mode that appeared in Halo 3: ODST. Gamers can play Spartan Ops on their own or co-operatively with up to three other players, and the first Season of Spartan Ops plans to deliver five new missions and cinematics each week over a 10-week period. According to Ellis, it’s this game mode that will consist of more content than Halo 3: ODST.
