Halo Co-Creator Explains The Importance Of Xbox Series X And PS5's SSDs

In a recent interview with Video Games Chronicle, Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto commented on the Xbox Series X and PS5, discussing the potential of high-speed SSD tech and sharing his excitement about how that technology will make a "huge difference" for games going forward.

Lehto, whose V1 Interactive studio is currently working on upcoming FPS Disintegration, suggested that because of those SSDs, next-gen systems will provide a more seamless and fluid experience:

"It will make a huge difference. It will open up the door for more expansive content that can stream a lot faster. Players won’t be waiting on load screens and we won’t have to hide loading behind cinematics and that kind of thing."

The Halo co-creator also went on to admit that creating games for the Xbox One and PS4 is proving difficult seven years on, describing them as "like developing for machinery in the stone age." However, he mentioned that work on next-gen systems for Disintegration hasn't been looked at thoroughly yet, but will be explored in the future.
