Bungie’s community lead Brian Jarrard has hinted that Firefight, the new co-operative gameplay mode in Halo 3: ODST, could be used in future games. Speaking to representatives from gaming site Eurogamer, he said:

“I can’t talk too much about Reach specifics, but hopefully the game mode’s going to be received as well we think it will be, and people are going to enjoy it. I don’t think we’ve ever been known to really take things away from each successive release, so I think it’s safe to say that if Firefight gets a lot of traction and people love it, it probably has a good future home in our next title as well.”

He did however confirm that it would not be added to Halo competitive multiplayer.
