While I am sure 343 can revitalize the Halo franchise with something new and innovative, I just don't want to see yet another game in another... wait. What am I talking about? Why not revolutionize the series with something familiar yet amazing. Look at Rocksteady and their handling of Batman, a property that had had countless shitty games made for it. If done well, it can satisfy die hard fans of the series and maybe even tickle the fancy of some newcomers. Sure, some brand spanking new IP would be great, but I think 343 proved themselves with Halo 4 and now will bring their AAA game to the table.
