The multiplayer component of Halo 5: Guardians will not include a voting system to determine what map comes up next. This was confirmed recently on Twitter by 343 Industries executive producer Josh Holmes.
A voting system, which is used in Halo: The Master Chief Collection and other previous titles in the series, seems like a nice idea on paper. But one potential downside of a popular vote is that the same maps and modes can come up over and over again, leaving some rarely played.
Holmes didn't provide any further details regarding Halo 5's map rotation system. That information is likely to come soon, however, as Halo 5's release date is set for October 27. Whatever the case, it sounds like Halo 5's multiplayer will offer more variety by eliminating voting, which might be a good thing.
