Ripped directly from the rumor mill is word that a remake of the original game in the Halo franchise, Combat Evolved, could receive a HD remake. 343 Industries, the torchbearers for the Halo franchise now that Bungie has moved on, is supposedly kicking around the idea of bringing Master Chief’s first fight to the Xbox 360 as early as March 2011.
The remake would potentially use the same engine as the recently released Halo Reach. This means that we could actually see two Halo titles competing against each other for multiplayer dominance.
With Halo 4 not set to release until sometime in 2012, this could hold the Halo faithful over until the next big title. I do question whether March 2011 is a realistic date. That means the title should be already being developed by someone by now. We’ve heard rumors in the past that Gearbox Software has been working on Halo 4. Could they also be remaking the classic Combat Evolved as well?
So, would you want to see the original Halo remastered in HD using the Reach engine? You think another developer can capture the magic like Bungie did way back in 2001?
