343 working on Halo 1 remake - Report

That's cool. I bet there's a ton of HALO3, ODST, and Reach players who've never played 1 or 2 before. Nice to give the fanbase a blast from the past. Kinda the way PS3 peeps are always dreaming of a remade FF7 or MGS1.

2011 update to pave way for fourth game, says GM


Microsoft's freshly-formed internal Halo studio, 343 Industries, is working on a Halo: Combat Evolved remake.

That's according to "industry chatter" reported in the new Games Master magazine, which writes that the updated game could run on the Halo: Reach engine and arrive ahead of a full Halo 3 sequel in late 2012.

If true, the remade Halo: Combat Evolved could release on the original's tenth anniversary, which falls on November, 2011.

Microsoft has previously expressed interest in adopting an annual release model for the Halo series, and this would certainly fit that nicely.

Plus, when asked, UK Xbox boss boss Stephen McGill seemed to be in favour of a remake, telling GM: "I imagine it's a good idea".

"I think some people want to go back to older games and see them revisited and I think a lot of developers want to see that too," he said.

We're certainly up for this. Are you, CVG massive?

I kind of dig the story cycle. Bugie went back and showed us what happened before M.C. hit the scene in HALO1. Now Microsoft will continue with that arc and basically make a sequal to Reach.

Plus it helps get 343 on its feet. They won't have to worry about a lot of the logistical stuff like basic character ideas, plot, etc. and can deal with the gameplay more fully.
