While fans everywhere are basking in the glow of Halo: Reach‘s well-executed farewell, one man has to plot out the franchise’s tomorrows in a post-Bungie world. That person is Frank O’Connor, the man in charge of 343 Industries. 343’s the hub of all things Halo and they’ve worked on everything from books to comics to merchandise to animated DVD releases. I sat down with O’Connor last night to ask him about where Halo goes after the release of Reach. He acknowledges that things might have to change and that the wait will probably be long, but promises that he and his 343 cohorts have their eyes on the prize.
