  • Halo: Combat Evolved Remake confirmed for holiday 2011?

    I'm a bit skeptical as no other major websites have reported this. But if this happens, that'd be awesome.

    Apparently it will not be a simple port with HD capabilities a la the GOW collection, but rather a full blown remake a la Resident Evil on the Gamecube complete with a new game engine and more recent Halo controls. Let's hope they do it right and don't fuck up a classic because this has the potential.

    http://www.joystiq.com/2011/02/04/ha...at-evolved-hd/

    Joystiq has learned that the previously rumored remake of Halo: Combat Evolvedwill 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 Haloconfigurations.

    The Halo: Combat Evolvedremake 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 Evolvedupdate, one of two Halogames 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.

      This just seems unnecessary the original only came out last gen plus its already on XBL why not just add online to that.

        It came out a decade ago. About equal to the RE remakes which were prolly the best RE games ever. I don't see it as too soon. Nov 15th would be the 10 yr anniversary.

        And again, it's not CE with HD resolution. It's being rebuilt from the ground up on a new engine.

        Not to mention they can't simply add online as Halo had no netcode and many gameplay elements would need to be redefined anyway. May as well take the story and build it into a big budget, more modern title imo.

            You just named a bunch of direct ports running in HD. This is actually a remake.

            And what's the difference between another Halo Xbox and another Final Fantasy on Playstation?

            You guys really need to stop trolling this section.

                My point is, just about every thread on the first page of the MS section has a Sony fanboy in it. It's getting old.

                They have plenty of franchises they just don't use them. They're also not as smart as Sony with 1st party development, no doubt. But they do have some good franchises and plenty more than just Halo & Gears

                Halo
                Gears
                Forza
                Alan Wake
                Fable
                Conker
                Perfect Dark
                Shadow Complex
                Infinite Undiscovery
                Project Gotham Racing
                Lost Odysey
                Crimson Skies
                Mech Warrior
                Crackdown
                Killer Instinct
                Banjo Kazooie

                Just to name some 1st party owned franchises. Not as many as Sony but how long has Sony been in the console game? MS simply doesn't utilize their first party owned titles like they should or buy devs like they should. They rely on 3rd party support too much. They have a lot.. L4D, Splinter Cell, Team Fortress, Metro 2033 as well as a new exclusive from Crytek etc... but Sony certainly leads 1st party. I don't think anyone who can look at it unbiased would deny it. But lets not try to act like all MS has is Halo and Gears.

                  Should be good! Can't wait. I'd love to play some of those OG Halo levels online.

                      Those franchises are all new and some arent even franchises yet just games, and what i should have said is franchises to fall back on. I still dont think they should have abandoned the original Xbox so quickly a ton of people had the Xbox and when they stopped making games a lot of people just went back to the PS2 instead of buying the 360.

                        Ico and Shadow Of The Collossus are not franchises either. And other than Shadow Complex, Infinite Undiscovery, Conker and Lost Odyssy, everything I listed has had more than 1 game in the series. But they are 1st party owned IPs and they could easily all see sequels or some, HD ports. As I said, MS simply has to utilize them more.

                        There are more, I simply named ones I felt were worth mentioning.

                        And of course alot of them are new, MS hasn't been in the console game long. That was one of my points.

                        I also disagree about MS supporting the OG Xbox. Sure it would have been nice as I went 2 years before I had a current gen console, but the Xbox wasn't selling. From a business standpoint, the smartest thing they could have done is move to the next generation tbh. It's honestly the biggest reason they're leading Sony in sales.

                          They'll fuck this up big time, watch. Halo CE is a classic though.

                            All they need to do is update the graphics add in online play, forge, and theater mode and thats it the game is already the best it can be.
