Possible new halo

Post  UF Spartan19423 on Thu Feb 10, 2011 8:25 am

Well good news guys, for those owning the PC version of Halo:combat envolved (Me being one of those lucky bastards). According to inside gaming, somewhere in November, some team (yes i know, very NOT detailed) will be building a new version of the halo, doing it also with a new engine. I dont know how good this will seem, that is yet to be deciaded, but a new halo (or a patched one) is something to certainly look forward to, should it happen.

I've heard about this, problem is: It will be for Xbox only (LAME)
So, I can't play it Sad

hmm, well in inside gaming it did not specify what platform it will be (no offense gara, but i hope in this case you are wrong). It is yet to be seen, what happens, but maybe since this is a new build for a game that has already been to the PC aswell, then they will do it for all platforms that halo 1 is on.

They converted Halo 2, but not Halo 3. There must be a reason for that, meaning they will probaly not convert it. But ye, I hope I'm wrong too Smile

Yeah, I've heard that halo 1 is being remade using the Reach engine, so decent upgrade, but if that's the case then it will be xbox only I'm afraid....

Bungie is greed.
Many players (just like me) have problems running Halo 2, I have a strange "lag" (even on campaign) when I run it on a too high resolution. The game just stops every second for 0.2 seconds or something. They didn't even tried to fix it as far I know.

bungie had nothing to do with game being ported. thank hired gun and Pi studios for not fixing anything when porting and locked up map editor.
also, many problems are caused by GFWL as well. remember how long it took to fix server browser?

Well all in all then, its a pretty fucked up story. Sorry to get your hopes up guys, i was rather just hoping, that for final fucks sake, bungie would actually do something for the PC community, rather then let some other team do some stuff or do nothing. Seemes that MS is all about the Xbox these days.

I say lets fuck MS and go to EA instead Twisted Evil

Reach was the last Bungie halo game. if there will be a remake of halo ce then some other developer will make it.

Joystiq has learned that the previously rumored remake of Halo: Combat Evolved will indeed launch this holiday season for Xbox 360 with a full visual overhaul. Sources explain that the re-release is not Bungie's 2001 Xbox game simply running at a higher resolution -- it's being remade with new art assets. While Halo's audio will likely remain unaltered, the controls will allow for more recent Halo configurations.

The Halo: Combat Evolved remake is allegedly being developed by New Jersey-based Saber Interactive, the company behind TimeShift and Namco's upcoming Inversion, but we've been unable to confirm the nature of the engine powering it. We understand that it's something other than the Reach engine.

The Halo: Combat Evolved update, one of two Halo games currently in development under the watchful eye of 343 Industries, is expected to support 1080p resolution and 3D televisions. Details on multiplayer are supposedly still being worked out, but we understand the remake will likely feature online co-op (the original game supported two-player split-screen co-op).

The game is expected to re-evolve on November 15, 2011, ten years after Halo: Combat Evolved launched alongside the Xbox. Our sources didn't know of any plans to similarly upgrade the recently disconnected Halo 2, but it's hard to imagine Microsoft playing favorites with its biggest franchise.
from http://www.joystiq.com/2011/02/04/halo-combat-evolved-hd/

I will not believe halo remake until I see it in my local video game shop, and even then I wont be sure.

Bungie + Activision = ?
Could mean lag fixes on CoD and improved multiplayer for local split screen games, cuz activision sucks in that regard Neutral
Also means that new games (that are not CoD or Halo Razz) could be something UF could branch out to, especially since Activision usually does PC.

OH! And the best part: CoD could get a facelift, graphics have not improved in a looooong time Very Happy

Well i read the article today that beazt has posted earlier. Also watched a video fal favorited on youtube. Obviously it seemes the game is coming to the xbox, one way or another (atleast i didnt see the mention of the letters "PC" anywhere). Second thing is, that it will be made by a totally new company called saber.... something... i cant remember XD... anyhow, point being, neither bungie nor activision will be working on it. That means the chances of a late PC release has just been killed for me.... FUCK XD

Also they will not use the reach engine to build it, but some other thing, made by that saber company. In my opinion its a bad move, because like stated in so many articles, they are tempering with the bungie feeling. Its like with the call of duty mw 2 and black ops. I love how the both games play, but personally i think the black ops graphics are less impressing then what of modren warfare 2's (you guys can have a differante opinion, but you get the point). So if they build it with something else, i dont really know how its going to work out. Are we going to get a new gears of war style game? who knows.

to be honest then I have to agree with Oliver. if bungie isnt making it then it will not feel like proper halo.
and as far as I understand then halo engine belongs to bungie. so engine and bungie comes as one item.
to bad. I already had my hopes high when the rumor first got to me.

This happens with all game franchises, once the game developers have finished, the pass it off to someone else and start on something new. Which means! that I'm looking forward to new stuff Bungie will do, because Halo is done I think.

I can only say: I hope it isn't Sad
I still hope that they will convert (or some other company) the other Halo xbox games into PC ones. hoping Smile)

If that happens, then il eat alot of paper concerning the facts that it wouldnt come out. But the truth is, im not so sure il be eating that paper.
