Thread: Halo 2 Anniversary

    Halo 2 Anniversary

    While Halo 2 is still a rumor and we are expecting more info about this during E3 (June 10-12) we will use this forum for speculation about content including wishlist discussion.

    I read somewhere that it was going to be released in Nov. this year. That may be speculation and I'll try to go back to whatever dark hole on the internet that was to find that again. If this is true hopefully we'll be seeing some of the old gang getting back into it.

    Found some speculation right here!!

    On top of today's massive Halo News and upcoming Halo 5: Guardians release in 2015 there is a new story. Something familiar, a story that we've heard ten years ago - the story of the Arbiter and the Master Chief and the Gravemind.

    Halo 2 is assured to be released on the Xbox One this fall. Last January, Halo PR guru Rob Semsey tweeted to supporters to let them have an idea that 2014 would highlight a new Halo experience. There is this anonymous blogger named ntkrnl leaked information into neoGAF which revealed that the Halo 2 Anniversary Edition was coming to Xbox One this fall and would be packed with Halo 5 beta keys.

    Kotaku testified on the news that ntkrnl was right in his review. Kotaku also mentioned some information that ntkrnl was accurate too. However, it is still a big question mark who is ntkrnl. Whoever he is he seems trusted, which means Halo news can really be true. Here are his take on what would happen with Halo this year:

    1 - Halo Anniversary 2 will be 1080p, iffy on the 60fps, maybe not.
    2- Halo 2 Anniversary includes beta for Halo 5
    3 - Multiplayer confirmed for HA2, same devs as Halo Anniversary.
    4 - Two versions of H2A. Collectors' Edition with the Beta access, the Halo series (not the Blomkamp one) War Collection with the above, as well as ports of Halo 3 & 4 for XB1.
    5 - Halo 2 HD, Halo 3 Port, Halo 4 Port, Halo 5 In the span of one year.
    6 - Same day launch (Nov 11th)

    If these pieces of information are true, then November will a great month for Halo fans. In the formal declaration for Halo 5: Guardians, Microsoft said "we'll give you much more information about our plans for this year at the Xbox E3 2014 Media Briefing on June 9, and we're confident that Halo fans will be pretty excited about the special plans we have in store."

    Xbox Chief Phil Spencer said last March that, "All the things that you and I know about the evolution of the franchise, if you're going to say one thing about Halo 2, you're going to talk about real multiplayer. I think you just have to nail that in just such a fundamentally core way. Frankly [we'd have to do it] probably better than we did with Halo 1 Anniversary. I thought the multiplayer in Halo 1 Anniversary was good, but Halo 1 never had multiplayer in the truest sense, so it always was going to be something different," he claimed. "If there were something called Halo 2 Anniversary, I think the multiplayer would have to be fantastic."

    If they release a H2 Anniversary in 1080p with multiplayer, I may never play another game again.

    Halo 2 was always my favorite in the series, and still is. <3

    I'm super stoked. I've always enjoyed the Halo series up until H3. Reach and 4 are/were more a matter of .... enduring as opposed to enjoying Halo. I also enjoy the CoD series. The thing is, I enjoy the DIFFERENCE in the games, not the similarities, and I think that's what a lot of the other old schoolers feel as well.

    Hopefully this will bring back the glory days of playlist population competition between the two franchises. All I can say is dang I'm looking forward to this!!
