Halo 4 announced

Halo 4 announced

Microsoft has unwittingly confirmed both Halo 4 and Halo HD ahead of its E3 2011 press conference.

Microsoft has unwittingly revealed two of its biggest announcements ahead of its E3 2011 press conference, with updates to Xbox.com (screencapped on Eurogamer) revealing both Halo 4 and a HD remake of the original game.

Details on both titles are few, as the images have since been removed and only showed brief synopsis' for each game, but the confirmation remains.

Other titles unveiled in the slip-up include Dance Central 2 and Kinect Sports Season 2.

Halo 4 remains the biggest news, however, with Microsoft claiming that its 'the news millions of fans have been waiting for'.

Meanwhile, the long-rumoured Halo HD project has been titled as Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and is billed as a 'The epic game that launched a universe, remastered for a new generation'.

The last title in the Halo series, Halo: Reach was received with indifference in our Halo: Reach review.

Microsoft's E3 2011 press conference is still two hours away, so fans likely won't have to wait long for details. Until then, let us know your thoughts in the forums.

..A remake.

Of Halo.

...Really? Was it so long ago that the highly cerebral story has been forgotten (While somehow being repeated over and over since)?

Still milking that cow for everything it's worth Microsoft?

Oh come on MS, just leave Halo at Halo 3 and be done with it instead of rehashing it. =/

Well I for one am happy at this news.

Everyone milks their top games because people enjoy getting into the story.

I never got to play it. Do the remake with cryengine and put it on a PC for £15 and I'm game.

I reluctantly bought Halo 3 ODST and was the last one i bought by..unless the come out on PC for a reasonable price (which i doubt).

I have played reach and it is just a cluttered mess, cant stand it. In fact the week it came out i Sold my Xbox.

Ive had enough...

So I guess they didn't 'finish the fight' after all, then?

Careful who you call a F**king retard mate! Although, I wasn't a 'kid' ten years ago, I enjoyed it then and still give the multi-player a whirl once and a while now.

It has to be said though that the game, or atleast the speed at which M'chief runs in the game seems awfully ...slow. M$ will have to tweak that. Not that I/we need worry as this will all be an Xbox exclusive and I don't play on consoles.

May we have Halo 3 on PC first, please? And Gears of War 2. And 3....

I am a halo fan boy (please don't shout). I can't wait! But Microsoft please put it on the PC my xbox is dead.

Halo means so much more to people than just the games. Yes, I know, the games important, but I'm a huge sci-fi fan and love the Halo franchise (as people here know. The photos of my office are up in these very forums. Halo shrine has gotten bigger, trust me).

I, for one, can't wait for the original remake and Halo 4. We need to see what happens to Master Chief!

How many remake announcements have there been in the last few days? This must be the result of parents not reading to their kids. A total lack of imagination.

I only ever played the first halo (on PC) and have a vague memory of it being pretty good.

I would be up for a HD remake if it was cheap.

Halo HD?
Serious Sam HD.
Meh.

HAHAHA Halo 4 is the start of a new trilogy. Fantastic. Finish the fight indeed. Also Halo 1 remake is too soon, not enough of a leap between xbox and xbox 360, they should have waited (or not bothered). I hope it sells like ****.

halo 1 remake too soon? maybe but then it is the 10yr anniversary this year and as for people slagging halo fans off? so what, i game on the pc, i like BC2 and hate cod and other such titles and i also love halo but i dont come on here saying cod is s**t, halo this that and the other, if you dont like it then fair enough, i respect that as im sure a lot of others do but at least have the decency to respect the fact that not everyone likes the same game, hardly makes us F***ing retarded kids now does it

Agreed, the story behind the game is awesome, the books are great. I haven't even played any of the games on the Xbox but did enjoy the original PC game. Great shame only Halo 2 made it to the PC.

Halo wasn't bad, but in the end it got a lot of:
fight your way through ten rooms then,
fight your way back through the same ten rooms...

and so on and so on

I really liked HALO. to be honest, that was the first decent first person shooter on the PC i played. (it was out when i was twelve-thirteen). the second was kinda a letdown to me.

Also, there is this part you are progressing trough some string of rooms and the wind is howling whole the time. At the time i tought it was a boss-monster howling and well, i was scared.
