Frank O’Connor, Halo Franchise development director, has confirmed that there is no Kinect support for gameplay in Halo 4.
O’Conner said, “Waypoint is more appropriate for Kinect.” Microsoft and 343 Industries never announced Kinect support for Halo 4, but many believed that it would offer some sort of Kinect support. According to O’Connor, Kinect support was not really suited for the core mechanics of Halo 4.
Halo Waypoint will get Kinect support at some point in the future, but it is yet to be determined when that will be coming to Waypoint. While some thought that Kinect supported controller for Halo might have been something that players wanted, it isn’t the kind of experience that would work well, if you ask us. On the other hand, voice navigation of Waypoint using Kinect would be cool.
