Halo studio 343i's head, Bonnie Ross, has left the company Anonymous 09/12/2022 (Mon) 20:50:34 Id: db8028 No. 688771
>>688771 >Family medical crisis Aw, that's sad. Is one of her cats sick?
>>688771 Good. Cutting off the head won't solve the massive problems with the company or their mishandling of Halo but it's at least something.
>>688771 Does it even matter anymore?
(245.80 KB 2160x2700 Spartan.jpeg)

>Ross is actually gone >after all these years hory sheet One does wonder if she's telling the truth about a family medical crisis, I don't see why that require her stepping down from the company. 343 leadership are very unpopular among both employees and Halo fans, it sounds like a cover for resigning. Maybe a mandate from Microsoft?
So she was politely fired as even M$ couldn't handle the bad press she pulled?
>>688779 >>688781 Most Halo fans suspect she was fired, 343i has had problems with the higher ups for years and Bonnie Ross was the franchise manager. Whether or not she was actually the problem is probably irrelevant to the situation, journos and industry people are saying she was actually instrumental in keeping Microsoft interested in Halo but the hammer was going to come down on somebody. Something I didn't mention in the OP was the announcement of 343i getting an leadership restructuring. This is definitely bigger than her.

>>688795 The Master Chief Collection wasn't even finished by 343i, but Certain Affinity. The guy who fixed the MCC is now the new studio head at 343i, so that's something.
>>688771 Best news in years for gaylo fans. Bitch was fucking awful. >>688779 The timing of this leads me to believe it was due to the on-going + growing backlash against 343. >>688787 >343i getting an leadership restructuring I wish all the fans would have properly voiced their anger so much sooner. >>688795 Her legacy will be one of unfinished, low quality, and broken games that likely hurt a major brand so badly that recovering to anywhere remotely near the height of what it once was is next to impossible. She killed the cash cow.

>shit game leads to firings and restructuring good, it deserves it. it seems like we just got done mocking saints woke and then this happens, I hope it keeps happening pic related to gaylo fans, you get what you deserve for actually playing any of this shit
>>688774 >>688779 They had to do fucking something. The normalfags have been braying for 343 blood for weeks, ever since the updated road map dropped with canceled split screen, no new fucking game modes. Well, okay, one new game mode but it wasn't one anyone asked for naturally. Watching Halo Infinite's dev cycle is like watching the DSP of game development. "Pay me same price for less khantent, nothing I could do dood waaaw." Jewtubers are comparing the Steam playercount to 2042 and realizing that 2042 is doing better. The game is quickly plummeting to Lawbreakers status.
>>688850 how about they MAKE A FUCKING BETTER GAME next time, then? maybe it's too much to ask from a studio that literally blew it's load developing AI for one enemy class that is still easy to kill for their first game(halo 4) I am so glad all of these shitty shooters are failing. I knew I would live to see the "console shooter wars" die off but I never expected it would be such a shitshow
>>688819 >I wish all the fans would have properly voiced their anger so much sooner. I mean some people were already mad at halo 4 like a decade ago. Not to mention the massive backlash against halo 5, 7 years ago. The fans have been very vocal about their dislike of 343 and microsoft has just not been listening. Its actually quite amazing, as someone who grew up in the 2000s you would think halo fans are the biggest normalfags who would lap up anything but they are probably the one fanbase most hostile to the developers making the games.
>>688851 >a studio that literally blew it's load developing AI I am reminded of that CoD Ghosts webm where the guy was bragging about fish AI that moved out of the way when you got close to them & then it cut to footage of Super Mario 64. I also remember it also being compared to the lean feature that was in FEAR
>>688855 yeah, thanks for reminding me of that actually, did the fish thing even made it into the game? I heard a shitload was cut from that game then again, being proud of fish AI is still being proud of SOMETHING, 343 is proud of only releasing one extra map within almost an entire year of development time, plus some cosmetics. That's like a week 2 update, remove shit cosmetics and focus more on map development and you have 2 new maps for the update

It was about how they dislike 343, but back then they still incorrectly had hope. Now search for halo and you find a fuck load of fire 343 and gaylo is dead popping up. There is little to no hope left in them now (the cashcow is nearly dead), and MS finally picked up on it. At the end of the day they were at fault. They were the ones who kept 343 going by falling for the usual line of "Oh we will get it better next time around!". Or "if we don't support them, then Halo is gone!". Like a battered wife, they stuck around long past the point where any reasonable person would have left. >>688953 Nah, about a half decade of patching a broken mess did that.

>>688940 >>689016 A working splitscreen mode on Xbox was found accidentally some time ago
>>689016 What happened to the Perfect Dark mentality of "it runs like shit but it's fun so we'll let players do 4 player split-screen with 8 sims and explosive weapons" In any case, I don't think Bonnie Ross is going to be missed. I think she took a walk before she was pushed. She knew what was coming. She botched the flagship title for the Xbox. Twice. Thrice even. First it missed launch, then it had a multiplayer launch that was completely terrible, and now they've abandoned promised features. 343i has done nothing but fuck-up and has survived due to the momentum of the Halo brand which has severely fucking slowed in recent years. So when a family member got sick (assuming it isn't personal mental health leave) she decided she had an easy out.
>>688771 >It took them 4 blunders in a row to kick their manager Although if it were Sony, they'd probably stayed their course because it's cardinal sin over there to fire a female in the game industry.
Why are 343 so fucking incompetent? I don't even fully understand what happened but all I know is that I played Halo Infinite's campaign and enjoyed it and they patched out some of the things that made it fun. For absolutely no reason. Like they patched out Grapple Launching off fusion coils. WHY? Why would you patch out stuff that makes your game more enjoyable if it has no bearing on your competitive multiplayer aspect in any way whatsoever? I genuinely want to know the reason. Their heads are completely up their fucking asses here. I don't know what possible reason you'd have to patch out an insanely fun feature like that.

I haven't looked up the details but my money is on they got 80-90% of the way done with the feature and gave up on it. The glitch is most likely using that unfinished feature. >>688972 343 pretended to be humble and give a fuck every single time and every single time they were duplicitous sacks of shit that doubled down on the next game. Last time, get this, they said they'd never make the mistake of removing split screen again.

>>689617 Contrarianism has nothing to do with twitter and is easily observable on media-hobby focused image boards and forums
>>689609 I first started when Habbo Hotel raids were still occurring (I was banned by a mod during one of them) and I've always thought Halo was a decent game. I believe the ire for it originates more from its influence than the game itself, similar to how you have contrarians here now who say Half-Life was never good. If it was like Perfect Dark, a fun console shooter that didn't overstep its boundaries, I believe everyone here would agree that it was good but because it became Microsoft's desperately needed flagship franchise for their nascent console, it became the target of anti-conformist ire. In reality, Call of Duty and other game franchises which aped the regenerating health mechanic still would be shit, they would have just been shit for other reasons. Shooters which aped Halo in a bid for success were not bad because of Halo but because they were made by lazy assholes copying what was successful. It had a good run for at least 3 games. Nothing groundbreaking but respectable for what it was and it did its job properly. This just goes to show that marketing does way too much for the success of a game.
>>689721 >similar to how you have contrarians here now who say Half-Life was never good I'm not saying that as a "contrarian" opinion, I'm saying that as an object opinion when I played through the game a few years ago. There are some good things about it, but it's ironically the parts of the game that people "hate" (Such as the first-person platforming and Xen) that are actually the best parts of Half-Life. Everything else about it is just people looking back at the game through (I hate this term) "nostalgia goggles". But, that's also an opinon developed by someone who grew up with FPS titles from the aughts and later, which took everything that Half-Life presented to the industry and ran with it, so it could be that my view of Half-Life is tainted by the fact that everything it did back in 1998 isn't as unique or innovative just a couple years later. However, I reject that being the sole reason why I consider Half-Life to be overrated because I fired up Doom around the same time and I was stunned by how awesome of a game it was, though confused as to why people didn't noticed that Doom is just first-person Zelda with twin-stick controls.

>>688999 >not one check for these trips
>>689739 It sounds like you agree that Half-Life is at least worth a playthrough (I'm also one of the ones who doesn't mind first person platforming, but then again I literally grew up with the game so there's that). I'm talking about those who conclude that because corridor shooters from the late 00s and later that focus on story are ultra-shit, Half-Life is retroactively shit. It's a glorified Quake mod with upgraded graphics but then again so were a huge number of shooters from that period (once upon a time Epic actually had competition for Unreal Engine licensing). The multiplayer scene was arguably even better than that of Quake's however. Half-Life 1 custom games were truly magical at their peak and sadly it's not something one can experience now.
