You know the studio Microsoft set up to continue the Halo legacy? The one that said they’re planning to â€œbreathe a fresh visionâ€ in to the series? According to an industry insider their first Halo release may do just the opposite.
The studio is apparently hard at work on a remake to the game that launched a thousand console FPS’, the original Halo : Combat Evolved.
Said mysterious insider says the game could run on the Halo Reach engine and will be available before the fully-fledged Halo 3 sequel. If that’s true, it could even be released to commemorate the original game’s 10th anniversary, which is in November next year.
I don’t know about you, but I think a 10 year old game – one from the previous generation – doesn’t really need a full-blown remake. I don’t really see the point, to be honest; Halo Reach is pretty damned spectacular and will keep fans pretty happy until a proper Halo sequel comes along.
If it’s happening at all, I think they should follow in Sony’s footsteps and release a budget-priced upscaled to HD version – not unlike the God of War, Team Ico and Sly Cooper Collections available on PS3.
What do you think? Do you want a remade Halo?
