If a company wants to release half a game, make it half price.

The price has never ever once been dropped yet 🤷♂️
So they sell the half game at half price, then charge more when they add in the other half?
Since when was CO-OP half a game? If the campaign is complete and doesn't have major bugs then fucking release it and add CO-OP later.
Nah, he rather not play at all apparently. I'm with you.
Halo was always built on the social experience. Co-op is a big part of that. Forge and custom games is a massive part of that. For many players, co-op campaign and forge custom games make up over 80% of our time on Halo.
Not only do I have no interest in paying for a Halo lacking those features, but I also suspect we’ll see a huge portion of potential players get the game and drop off within a couple of months due. That’s exactly what happened with Halo 5. It’s a great game now (shit campaign aside), but when it released, it was lacking Forge and other features, and people got bored. After forge was added, many of those players never returned.

They can wait.
Sorry mate, but that's a trash response. Those players make up a huge portion of the playerbase, and they're absolutely allowed to be upset on the Halo subreddit about the fact that the next Halo game is completely ignoring them at launch. These are features that have been around for 14 years for forge, and 20 years for co-op.

Okay so what you want me to say? These people are gonna wait no matter what. Instead of delaying the game for fucking co-op and forge these people should just wait.
You can say what you want, but the reason I replied to you was because you were downplaying the importance of this. You may not be personally upset, and that's fine, but don't act like it's unreasonable for others to be.
Bit dramatic, its disappointing yes but I'm happy as long as the game is polished and is a stellar experience. I'm happy to wait before playing the campaign if it means I'm getting a better experience.
I'll be treating the release as a multiplayer release honestly, I have game pass anyway so it won't effect my decision either way
It’s just online co op your acting like they are not releasing half the fucking campaign.
Forge. The entire community of custom game creators will have nothing. One of the foundations of the halo community.
Halo started out as a co op multiplayer experience. A lot of people play for the nostalgia with family members/friends.
I’m sure the micro transaction system is all up to date and ready to launch though.
The issue is greed. Stop releasing half ass products filled with loot box gambling mechanics and make a real game. They did it in early 2000s but they can’t do it now? Really.
Forge will be ready when it’s ready just like how it was with Halo 5. It’s a brand new engine so there’s a lot of play testing and polishing being done to make sure the forge mode is good. You are acting like they said forge isn’t coming at all.
Halo has co op, yes, but it’s not a purely co op experience. Plenty of people play the games single player only, I’d be willing to bet the farm more people play it single player then in co op. Yes it sucks for people that do enjoy it that’s there’s no co op at launch but it will be coming post launch. If it’s really that big of a deal wait the 3 months for it to be brought to the game.
They are literally delaying these 2 feature so they don’t release them half assed. We’re still getting a single player campaign and a full blown multiplayer experience. That’s not half assed to me. Also there aren’t any loot boxes.
Multiplayer is FREE
This, I don’t see the community surviving for 6 months without custom games.
