  • There has been much talk. And i have listened...
This is how I found it:

According to the leaker (who was verified by someone somehow) Halo 2 Anniversary is coming out this November 11; and it will include Halo 5 beta access; contracted by the same gang (saber and certain affinity) who made the first version.

Also we are gonna "Halo real time show... think Forward Unto Dawn (not the Spielberg stuff)"

If you follow the links through to the original neogaf thread; there is a ton more leaked stuff, Most of its not pertinant to halo though (although he does do some more clarification on some of the other points later)

I heard Blomkamp might direct the first episode of the show somewhere...

Urgh. Keep Blomkamp away. His visual style does not fit Halo.

Leakers on NeoGAF have to be "verified" by the mods, which means that there's at least some grains of truth in here; some of his comments were further verified by other sources. The fact that from the get-go they were dodgy about "Halo on Xbox One" makes me think that it was always likely Halo 5 wasn't coming in 2015, and so they might have been hedging their bets for long odds.

I dunno about all the leaks though. It seems odd to port *every Halo game* except Reach and CEA to the One, and it leaves so many questions (like would they really port a decade-old multiplayer mode a year before the flagship title comes out?) I could see the campaigns getting releases on XB1 but the sheer quantity of Halo content they're discussing seems fishy.

From what I've heard, Microsoft is puruing and threatening Legal action, so there is definately some level of truth for it to have stirred the beehive like it did.

At this point, all signs point to yes on H2A. Frank's been teasing up a storm at GAF.

E3 seems so far away...

So...

The complete multiplayers for Halo 1-4, plus Halo CEA, Halo 2A, Halo 3 and Halo 4 at 1080p60. Plus Ridley Scott's feature, Nightfall, plus Halo 5 beta access in late December 2014.

I'm excited :)

Well I assume Halo 4 will get properly killed off by its next-gen version in most cases.

What will be interesting is what Halos stay populated when Halo 5 comes out. According to 343 while they are pushing the "best of" voting options you can choose to only play game X, so playerbase splitting is certainly a possibility. Time will tell.

(Also, an IGN video of the current interface, which aside from using the too-thin all-caps Halo 4 font looks very nice, shows coop campaign hoppers as well. So you can choose to look only for missions you haven't completed, only Flood levels, only finale levels... very cool.)

So excited for this.

I got to tour blur while I was out there, and everyone was working on Halo 2 cutscenes and stuff; Got me super excited, it looks AMAZING.

Also; I asked them if they were gonna include the half naked dude dancing around in that one cutscene, but they just said "we will do whatever we have to" -- idk what that means.

Mother of god...

Why don't they just make a theatrical Halo film entirely in CG?

Hype train is at full steam.

Now it's just about convincing myself that this collection and attached goodies will justify a new console purchase.
Praise Bird Jesus!

Yeah, I was wondering about that. It doesn't sound like it's even a remastered track off Halo 2 either, because aside from a brief moment I can't recognize the melody at all.

  • No. There is more. But you are not worthy. Not yet
Sounds a lot like some stuff from Spartan Assault.
