It’s not the first feature to be dropped in Halo 5: Guardians. It’s already been announced that there’ll be no split-screen option that has made the game a hit with players over the years. Now the option to vote for a map or veto it has been dropped too. The Studio head at 343 Industries, Josh Holmes, confirmed this via Twitter:
@GDO_TWITS No voting or veto, just straight rotation.

Now, depending on your stance this is a really good or bad thing. Personally I think it’ll stop us replaying the same maps over and over again by using the rotation system. Others will be a bit miffed that they will perhaps not play their favourite maps all that much. This’ll likely affect matchmaking, so if you plan to play this with friends in a private match you’ve got little to be worried about.
Halo 5: Guardians launches exclusively on Xbox One on 27 October 2015.
