The Xbox 720 is currently under development at Microsoft, but one developer believes that gamers do not play shooters like they use to.
According to a report from Destructoid yesterday, Bungie Studio co-founder, Jason Jones, talked about some of the things the studio did to reach out to gamers who were playing their previous franchise "Halo."
"We did a bunch of ambitious things on Halo deliberately to reach out to people.
"We limited players to two weapons, we gave them recharging health, we automatically saved and restored the game -- almost heretical things to first-person shooters at the time.
"We made the game run without a mouse and keyboard. And now nobody plays shooters the way they used to play them before 'Halo' 'cause nobody wants to," Jones said.
It's hard to say that flat out "nobody wants to" play shooters at all. Those were actually some of the most successful games of 2012.
But Jones may have a point with people shifting more towards the open-world, RPG, action adventure style of gaming.
Shooters are still a major part of the content that is released each year, and gamers are still showing more than a small interest in what it has to offer.
"Destiny" seems to want to redefine the genre, so it'll be interesting to see what they come up with.
