While talking with Eurogamer, Bungie’s community leader Brian Jarrard spoke about the reality of the new co-op mode from Halo 3: ODST, the Firefight mode, being featured in next year’s Halo: Reach.
“I don’t think we’ve ever been known to really take things away from each successive release, so I think it’s safe to say that if Firefight gets a lot of traction and people love it, it probably has a good future home in our next title as well,” Jarrard said.
I believe it’s a safe bet that we’ll see Firefight mode in Halo: Reach next year. Firefight is easily the biggest feature in Halo 3: ODST and is sure to be a success with players over Xbox Live. Just think about. Getting together online with three other homies, gunning through hundreds of Covenant and while constantly rethinking your strategy to get through the next wave. Sounds really dope to me.
Look out for Halo 3: ODST in just a few weeks on Sept. 22 and Halo: Reach sometime next year.
