This is going to be lengthy, so for those about to endeavor into the black hole I call a forum post, I salute you (TL;DR provided at end). I have been playing Halo all of my life, and I have an emotional connection to it that I don't have with any other game. My dad and I used to play the game together while I was growing up, spending hours upon hours just trying to get all the skulls and beat the games on legendary. I loved every damn minute of it, and that is still considered the best season of my life. My dad died my freshman year of high school, and still today, the halo series is my favorite video game series ever because I can go play it and just remember my dad and how much it meant to him to play with me. We were both so lost in the story of the game, and I had never been happier. I love this series with all of my heart. You have done a great job with what you were given, it is nearly impossible to satisfy an entire fanbase for something as large as halo, and seeing you continue to improve halo 5 well beyond its release is fantastic to see. These will be a few things that I think you could incorporate that would make halo 6 be a game that could rival even the first trilogy (as far as campaign goes). This is more for me than anyone else seeing as how this won't get noticed by 343i :laughing: 

First off, Music. This is SOOOO important to many people like me who need to feel the emotion while playing. I felt like a bad *** at all the right times in the original trilogy, and also felt the sadness and seriousness when I was supposed to. The music is so important to this! I think along with a few adjustments to the music style now, the only thing I would touch is the volume. This is very noticeable in halo 4. My FAVORITE song from the halo soundtracks (besides under cover of night) is "Arrival" in halo 4. Pre-release, that song singlehandedly would get me juiced for halo 4. But when I played the campaign, the music was so quiet! that song came on at the perfect moment, but I could not enjoy it. You made such a beautiful blend of badassery and emotion into one song and then let it sit in the background. Please make music more of a focus in H6.

Next is keep the extended universe to a minimum please! I didn't read any halo novels until after I completed the original trilogy and everything there was what I needed to know. I felt like the characters mattered, and they were all so cool and real. I come in to halo 5 and IDK what is even going on, like who the hell is this squad and why do I care? Buck is the only person who I was able to even recognize and relate to. Locke was so underdeveloped within the game, and that left a bad taste in the mouth. I don't want to have to spend a ton of time outside of the game to understand why I'm shooting. Just include a better narrative with the characters please!

Also side note, please remove the squad system. I know that you want to introduce new things to the game, and i applaud you for being courageous enough to try, but your current campaign style just doesn't go with the halo games. 

 

And this last one is something that I have missed so much: REWARDING armor. Make us WORK for our armor, not just randomly give it out. H3 armor was so cool to me, and having to get achievements for armor made me invest so much time into the game, and I loved every second. The hayabusa armor baby let me tell you what I was the flyest 12 year old in the world. And the vid master MY GOD the vidmasters. I loved it and I know a lot of the community did too. Make it so that it isn't just head torso and legs. Add back in arms shoulders. I just want to get lost in the game looking for all of its little intricacies, and I can't really do that with these new halos. 

 

I am prob the only one that wants this but..... BRING BACK THE FLOOD PLEASE. They added so much depth and importance to your actions. They were a threat to the whole galaxy, and they were so freaky I loved it. Such a good enemy. It just doesn't feel like halo without them.

 

A fist fight scene with chief. The halo 5 one was disappointing. It seemed slow and not like a supersoldier was throwing a punch. Ever move was telegraphed and easy to dodge. I want to see chief, the man who saved the f****** universe kick someones ***.

 

Make the game rated M again, I want blood like the old days. Shoot an enemy, blood comes out. Simple. 

 

Finally, make your marketing campaign as epic, emotional, and gritty as halo 3's. When i see starry night to this day I die a little inside, and I get goosebumps. It was such a genius campaign, I want to feel that way for halo 6 so bad, I really do. The believe campaign was so good. Please 343 if nothing else, THIS.

We love you 343i, we just want to see the best for the series that means so much to so many. Thanks for reading guys, have a blessed one. See you on the battlefield! :)

TL;DR 
Improvements to music, minimizing of need for reading outside materials such as books for depth to story, rewarding of armor not microtransaction lottery thus giving campaign more replay value, bring back the motha F***** Flood, A GOOD fist fight scene with chief, Make the game rated M, and finally take note of the halo 3 believe advertisements.

Thank goodness for that TL;DR, so much text... Good ideas though! I have a feeling Halo's story has been getting progressively worse as time goes by.
