Halo 5: Guardians Director Talks About Female Characters In Game

Bonnie Ross, General Manager of 343 Industries announced the next installment in the Halo franchise, last week.

Titled Halo 5: Guardians, the image revealed with the game got fans excited for many reasons, one of them being the possibility of a female protagonist.

Development Director Frank O’Connor recently shed some more light regarding the game on NeoGaf, clarifying some points.

One of the things he mentioned while discussing the main character of the game and the image released upon game reveal was that the protagonist would not be a female character.

“There will be plenty of strong female characters in the game, but that is not a picture of one of them.”

He also talked about the new engine of the game. Even though according to him the engine is a totally new creation and not an evolved version of the previous one, it still has some core elements from the original engine used in the franchise.

Well, that’s no bad news, one of the things about Halo which the fans love and what sets it apart from all the other FPS titles out there is its engine, and it’s good to hear the new game would still retain its originality.

Halo 5: Guardians, the next installment in the famous Halo franchise will launch for Xbox One in fall 2015. The game will apparently run at “60 frames per second, on dedicated servers”.
