In a recent Twitter response, Halo 5 studio head Josh Holmes confirmed in a round-about way that Halo 5 will not feature split-screen in any form.
When asked if an Xbox store listing confirmed the lack of split-screen, Josh said:
“All MP modes use full screen on dedicated servers, incl Coop Campaign, Arena and Warzone.”
Now, whilst the phrasing is obscure, it does mean that all modes in Halo 5: Guardians will not support splitscreen, as explained in a Game Informer article earlier this month. This is due to 343i’s goal for Halo 5 of “ensuring top framerate and graphical performance at all times.”
What does this new mean for you?
