  • Microsoft Reacts To Activision, Bungie Deal

    Bungie is still working with their former owners, Microsoft, on Bungie's potentially last Halo game, Halo: Reach. Activision and Bungie's decade-long publishing partnership for an upcoming intellectual property comes as Halo: Reach is about to enter beta for a select number of users. What does Microsoft think about the deal? The company has...

  • 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...

  • Bungie Says Halo: Reach's Story Will Be More Akin To Halo 3: ODST

    Starting with Halo 2, the complicated mythology took hold of the story in Halo games. Bungie, in my eyes, successfully reigned in the problems with that path in Halo 3: ODST, which allowed you to enjoy a Halo story without being left out because you haven't read a Halo encyclopedia, too. According to Bungie, that's going to be the approach for...

  • Dark Void Was Delayed Until 2010 Because Of...Halo 3: ODST?

    You'll have a chance to play Dark Void next week, but Capcom's high-flying new franchise was originally scheduled for last fall. Capcom decided to hold the game back, claiming time time would be used to further polish the game and let Dark Void launch in a less crowded market. Capcom did have a date picked out for Dark Void, however, but there...

    Are you a Halo fan? Have you seen Avatar? You're going to want to pay attention to director James Cameron's response to my question about the influence Aliens had on Halo and vice versa. One of the common responses to the first trailer for Cameron's Avatar was "whoa, that looks like Halo." Of course, moments later, most people...

    What's on the Halo 3: ODST disc is all Bungie Studios has planned for the game. In a post-release interview with the team, Bungie confirmed there are no plans to release any downloadable content for Halo 3: ODST.

  • Halo 3: ODST's Buck (Aka Nathan Fillion) Could Return In Halo: Reach Next Year

    Halo 3: ODST may have been mostly a success for Bungie, but there haven't been many indications the developer is interested in making the adventures of the ODST a regular occurrence. It was a spin-off, a one-time thing. But that doesn't mean we've seen the last of the cast of characters Bungie introduced in Halo 3: ODST. At the end of our...

  • Bungie Explains Why There's No Matchmaking For Halo 3: ODST's Firefight

    A constant source of criticism for Halo 3: ODST has been the lack of matchmaking for the popular Firefight mode. You can't jump into a random Firefight game; matches must be coordinated with friends. Since it's a cooperative-dependent mode, most people would want to partner up with friends anyway, but the lack of a randomized option was clearly...

  • Reaction Time: Bungie Reflects on Halo 3: ODST

    It's difficult to manage expectations, especially in this age of downloadable content, expanded universes, and cost-conscious (and tempermental) audiences who love you one minute and write snarky things about you on the Internet the next. Few development studios know this like Bungie, who when developing Halo 3: ODST made the bold decision to...

    "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.
