  • Bungie Won't Rule Out More Halo Games, But They're A Long Ways Off

    It would be insane for Bungie Studios to categorically rule out working on another Halo game after Halo: Reach is released later this year on Xbox 360. Even though internal Microsoft developer 343 Industries is not-so-secretly working on whatever's coming after Halo: Reach, it's always possible Bungie could come back to Halo. The studio is...

  • This Reader Unlocked Every Halo Achievement (Even That Halo Wars One)

    "Significantly less" than 1% of Halo players have managed to unlock every achievement across every Halo game, according to the developers of the recently launched Halo hub Halo Waypoint. One of the biggest stumbling blocks for the Halo devoted is picking up all the Halo Wars achievements -- specifically, the "Generals"...

  • The Biggest Achievement Stumbling Block For Halo Fans: Halo Wars?

    Not many people have earned all the achievements possible from Halo 3, Halo Wars and Halo 3: ODST, as evidenced by the statistics Microsoft dug up while developing Halo Waypoint. "Significantly less" than 1% of players have unlocked all the achievements. Based on readers comments and e-mails I received, the biggest stumbling block for...

  • "Significantly Less" Than 1% Of Halo Players Have Every Possible Achievement

    Halo fans are notoriously hardcore, but even in the Halo community, there are only a hardened few who are willing to attempt the seemingly impossible: unlocking every achievement in each Halo game (that has achievements and includes map packs) so far. That includes Halo 3, Halo Wars and the recently released Halo 3: ODST. According to Halo...

  • Halo Waypoint Is Actually Part Of Halo's Story...But It's A Secret (For Now)

  • Bungie Veterans Forming Downloadable Games Studio Moonshot Games

    Halo developer Bungie Studios has talked about developing downloadable games over the years, but Halo 3 ODST's the closest it's come to creating something small. Perhaps that approach is why Bungie veterans Michel Bastien, Damian Isla and Rob Stokes (alongside Seattle artist Mike McCain) have formed Moonshot Games, a studio strictly focused on...

    I know you're all busy playing Firefight right now, but it's that time of week to sit down and take a minute to listen to the pearls of wisdom spit by The Sess. Adam sits down to discuss Halo 3: ODST and its strangely muted presence in this year's list of big game releases. Does ODST not need a bit marketing push because it's a part of the Halo...

    There might be a Halo movie eventually, but what was supposed to be the Halo movie helmed by Peter Jackson protégé Neill Blomkamp became District 9.

    If you’re a dedicated Halo Wars fan, I feel your pain. I really do. In case the rest of you hadn’t heard, all of the leaderboards (single-player, multiplayer, and Trueskill, as well as matchmaking data) were recently reset to launch day status, and it's unlikely that the data will be restored. That’s almost five months worth...

  • Halo: Reach Will Be Bungie's Last Halo Game For The Xbox 360

    Between Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and the distant Halo: Reach, I’d say Bungie has been pretty generous to fans of its console-defining sci-fi shooter. Throw in the Ensemble Studios’ RTS Halo Wars, and that’s quite a lot of Halo for one console generation. That’s probably why it isn’t too surprising that Reach will in...
