Halo Panel

By - Posted Jul 22, 2011

Comic-Con 2011


In the Comic-Con 2011 Halo panel, Frank O'Connor, Kevin Grace, and others from 343 Industries, as well as special Halo guests Greg Bear and Karen Traviss, discuss the first 10 years of Halo and offer a sneak peek into what's next for this exciting sci-fi universe.


We're looking forward to some exciting news about the next iteration of the Halo franchise. Could it be Halo 4? We're also expecting some early views of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary.

Eric Eckstein: 
Hi all, the panel will be underway soon, and the wonderful Dana Vinson will be giving you updates throughout. Just a reminder, Comic-Con does not allow the broadcasting or live streaming of panels, so we do the next best thing by liveblogging.

Eric are you answering any questions yet?
Friday July 22, 2011 11:31 Thomas Fynes Jr.
11:32
Eric Eckstein: 
Not sure what I can answer, but we see your comments and will do our best to answer what we can. The panel isn't happening just yet.

Why is livestreaming not allowed at Comic Con?
Friday July 22, 2011 11:32 Sam Hardgrove
11:33
Eric Eckstein: 
Right now, Comic-Con is still positioned as an exclusive "had to be there" event, so they don't allow any of that. I'd like to think that policy will change soon.

Do you know how long the panel lasts?

Eric Eckstein: 
The room is FILLED for the Halo panel btw.

Eric Eckstein: 
They've been working very diligently on Halo 4.
Friday July 22, 2011 11:38 Eric Eckstein
11:39
Eric Eckstein: 
Halo 4 will serve as both a new story and a prequel for Halo fans.
Friday July 22, 2011 11:39 Eric Eckstein
11:40
Eric Eckstein: 
Frank O'Connor says every piece of Halo fiction will be connected to the universe.
Friday July 22, 2011 11:40 Eric Eckstein
11:41
Eric Eckstein: 
The more you take in and experience, the more Halo you will understand. It will all tie together.
Friday July 22, 2011 11:41 Eric Eckstein
11:43
Eric Eckstein: 
Karen Traviss, a writer who has authored Halo novelizations, talks about crafting the story for Halo 4.
Friday July 22, 2011 11:43 Eric Eckstein
11:46
Eric Eckstein: 
Greg Bear is there as well, "it's like being asked to create Superman's backstory" when talking about the pressure to craft that story.
Friday July 22, 2011 11:46 Eric Eckstein
11:47
Eric Eckstein: 
"We're going very very deep."
Friday July 22, 2011 11:47 Eric Eckstein
11:49
Eric Eckstein: 
Ah, sorry, we made an error about what Karen was talking about. She was talking about her book, not Halo 4.
Friday July 22, 2011 11:49 Eric Eckstein
11:53
Eric Eckstein: 
Red vs Blue jumped in.
Friday July 22, 2011 11:53 Eric Eckstein
11:53
Eric Eckstein: 
You have to be ballsy on the Internet. That's what Red vs. Blue is aiming for, but trying to stay relevant to the universe.

Eric Eckstein:

They made sure to integrate community feedback into the game.

Eric Eckstein: 
"This game needs to play exactly like it originally did."
Friday July 22, 2011 12:00 Eric Eckstein
12:00
Eric Eckstein: 
You can play in Classic mode, playing the game as it looked 10 years ago. Or play it with the new graphics engine.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:00 Eric Eckstein

Eric Eckstein: 
There will be 2-player Co-op over Xbox Live as well.

I thought it was 4-player?
Friday July 22, 2011 12:06 Conor Moloney
12:07
Eric Eckstein: 
2 player campaign co-op, from what we've been told.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:07 Eric Eckstein

[Comment From Edgar Ondoño AlcázarEdgar Ondoño Alcázar: ] 
This is the final version of the game?, or the game are on development?
Friday July 22, 2011 12:07 Edgar Ondoño Alcázar
12:07
Eric Eckstein: 
Game is still in development, it comes out in November.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:07 Eric Eckstein
12:11
[Comment From JuanGGZJuanGGZ: ] 
We heard Halo: Anniversary will be available on November 15 for the ten years of Halo: Combat Evolved, but some journalists suggest it will be published on November 18 for PAL Territories (France, UK, Spain, etc...). Can you confirm that or is it a lie ?
Friday July 22, 2011 12:11 JuanGGZ
12:11
Eric Eckstein: 
Last night, I spoke to Frank O'Connor and he told me November 15th. I didn't clarify if that was worldwide, however.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:11 Eric Eckstein
12:11
Eric Eckstein: 
We will follow-up about that though.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:11 Eric Eckstein
12:12
[Comment From Nathan BarnardNathan Barnard: ] 
do they know if there will be a legendary edition for halo combat evolved anniversary
Friday July 22, 2011 12:12 Nathan Barnard
12:12
Eric Eckstein: 
I don't believe anything's been revealed yet, but I'm sure there will be a collector's edition. On its own, Halo Anniversary will be $39.99.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:12 Eric Eckstein
12:13
[Comment From Michael JusticeMichael Justice: ] 
Best Buy also says on their website that it is 60 dollars and it comes out on December 1st.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:13 Michael Justice
12:13
Eric Eckstein: 
I don't have anything against Best Buy, but that's incorrect. You should expect the game at $39.99 on November 15th.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:13 Eric Eckstein
12:14
[Comment From Liam RobertsLiam Roberts: ] 
i know its shipping with seven maps remade for reach from halo ce. Will it ship with the dlc thats already been released for reach as well ?
Friday July 22, 2011 12:14 Liam Roberts
12:15
Eric Eckstein: 
That's a good question, we'll follow-up to find out. I do know that, along with the original Halo Combat Evolved maps, Frank did say that there will be at least one Halo 2 map included as well.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:15 Eric Eckstein
12:21
Eric Eckstein: 
Sorry all, minor tech prob but we're back.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:21 Eric Eckstein
12:22
Eric Eckstein: 
The game itself still looks great, it's just like Halo 1. Good chance for younger gamers to go in and play it or people to re-experience the game.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:22 Eric Eckstein
12:22
Eric Eckstein: 
They jumped into Q&A, but they said they really can't talk about Halo 4 at all. Boo.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:22 Eric Eckstein
12:23
Eric Eckstein: 
We had a small Red Shirt Guy-esque moment with one of the questions, and turns out she was asking if there will be subtitles.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:23 Eric Eckstein
12:23
Eric Eckstein: 
And then someone said, "the Halo story was so much better than Call of Duty" and it got wild applause!
Friday July 22, 2011 12:23 Eric Eckstein
12:23
Eric Eckstein: 
All of the gameplay in Halo Anniversary will be as close as possible, if not identical, to the original Halo.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:23 Eric Eckstein
12:24
Eric Eckstein: 
"What character do you identify with the most?"
Friday July 22, 2011 12:24 Eric Eckstein
12:24
Eric Eckstein: 
Most answer, Master Chief, obviously... even though they readily admit that's sort of douchey. Their words!
Friday July 22, 2011 12:24 Eric Eckstein
12:24
Eric Eckstein: 
Frank says, Sgt. Johnson, "because he knows what the ladies like."
Friday July 22, 2011 12:24 Eric Eckstein
12:25
Eric Eckstein: 
One guy is really mad that there aren't going to be any new map packs before Anniversary. Sorry folks.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:25 Eric Eckstein
12:25
Eric Eckstein: 
They are talking about Master Chief's cod piece. How it's redesigned to be more breathable --- that was when they were dancing around the question "will Master Chief get a new suit for Halo 4?"
Friday July 22, 2011 12:25 Eric Eckstein
12:27
[Comment From Alan Jurado OrozcoAlan Jurado Orozco: ] 
The title update on august will be big?
Friday July 22, 2011 12:27 Alan Jurado Orozco
12:27
Eric Eckstein: 
I'm not sure where that info came from. It's undetermined at this time.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:27 Eric Eckstein
12:28
[Comment From Dillon MitchellDillon Mitchell: ] 
Will there be a beta for halo 4!!
Friday July 22, 2011 12:28 Dillon Mitchell
12:28
Eric Eckstein: 
Way too early to be talking about Halo 4 betas. Sorry.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:28 Eric Eckstein
12:28
Eric Eckstein: 
And one last question from the room...
Friday July 22, 2011 12:28 Eric Eckstein
12:29
Eric Eckstein: 
Some guy wants to know how they had jet packs in Reach, and not in the other games, even though Reach was a prequel.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:29 Eric Eckstein
12:30
Eric Eckstein: 
The official explanation: Parts of the universe have different equipment.
Friday July 22, 2011 12:30 Eric Eckstein
12:32
Eric Eckstein: 
Dana Vinson says, "Don't complain about jet packs. They're awesome!"
Friday July 22, 2011 12:32 Eric Eckstein
12:32
Eric Eckstein: 
And that's it from the Halo panel, but here's the link for the new video: http://www.g4tv.com/videos/54290/halo-anniversary-comic-con-2011-campaign-demo-video/
Friday July 22, 2011 12:32 Eric Eckstein

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
