Podcast Unlocked Episode 182: On the Phone with 343

Halo 5 dominates our show this week, as not only do we talk to 343 Industries Halo 5 Studio Head Josh Holmes and Multiplayer Designer Quinn DelHoyo about what they learned from the now-completed Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta (skip to 1:02:57 for that), we also discuss all the changes made as a result of player feedback. Plus, a release date for the Halo 5 art book suggests that Halo 5 might not ship in November as we've all been expecting. We discuss why that might make a ton of sense. Oh, and get our thoughts on Evolve, hear some of the best 2015 Xbox predictions we got from you guys, and learn what's going into the February Xbox One system update.
