The original quote to which you were refering was, as Deimos pointed out, aobut standard XBL play. It said, basicallly: imagine the big battles from Halo but instead of playing against the AI, every character is a real person. Now, we can argue about whether 16 player multiplayer with elites and spartans lives up to that description or not, but that description is clearly not about co-op.
In the original quote the dev mentioned a situation in the main campain
and with every marine are controlled by a human the main mission,
with mean coop .
No one was refering at the all of the same standard capture the flag or dm mode.
I can't find the quote right now, but if I could, I would point out that while the DID mention as situation in the main campaign, the point of it was that a situation in multiplayer would be LIKE that. I'm 100% sure that the quote said that it would be like the campaign battles, except with ALL OF THE CHARACTERS CONTROLLED BY REAL PEOPLE. In other words, whatever else it might mean, it does NOT mean coop.
