Yesterday marked 13 years since the release of Halo 3: ODST, a Halo spinoff that many fondly remember because it shook up the foundations of the series and offered something very different.
When the official Halo Twitter account noted this anniversary, it was retweeted by Halo veteran Joseph Staten, who was the director of Halo 3: ODST (he actually started back on Halo: Combat Evolved in 2001 and was also brought back to fix Halo Infinite after the harsh criticism it received after the first gameplay trailer in 2020). He revealed that he would love to do something similar to ODST again and explained what he loves about the Halo universe:
“Halo 3: ODST remains the highlight of my game development career. And it’s an example of why I love the @Halo universe: it’s a place where we can tell countless different kinds of stories. I would love to do something like ODST again someday . #PrepareToDrop”
We certainly wouldn’t mind something new like Halo 3: ODST either, or what do you say?
