    Another Bungie tease or mistake or don't can our announcement again MS.

    Could be based on Fall of Reach.

    Excited!

    If it was a real game based on the Fal of Reach, it might be good. Especially if it goes over some of the same stuff as the book, like MAster Chief sneaking into a facility in a ships water tank, or the museum siege. Plus there lots of Spartans :) I would say that'd even the odds, but given it'd be a prequel the ending could possibly be downbeat.

    If this is legit, "Reach" to me implies some sort of use of the fabled MS motion control camera. Halo re-release with Wii esque controls ala Metroid?

    Reach is a planet in the Halo universe Richard, it has nothing to do with the motion control. I'm cautiously optimistic for a prequel, they could do a lot of interesting things with that story.

    Ah, a double meaning possibly? I like the way you think. If I wanted to distract from making a Wiimote rip-off, I'd certainly pull out a big game to go with it. Halo would suit that nicely.

    Squad-based shooter we all heard about last year finally comes to fruition, maybe? Thought it'd be ODST squad, but a squad of Spartans.... that would be sweet.

    If it's Reach though, you'd be Mjolnir-less. You'd still be awesome, but if they do the whole story ou'll start off super-skillful, then get augmented, then get the shieldless armour, then finally the real deal. Getting more powerful as you play would be quite nice (a bit Metroidish).

    Though I doubt it'd be another Master Chief story, since there were plenty of other Spartans it'd make sense to have a senf contained side story.

    Oh, with some of the zero gravity sections in the book, where the Spartans use the jetpacks in space etc.. Oh also, some space combat sections.

    That would be so sweet!

    Yea, I remember that Ghost Recon lead moving to Bungie a while ago and I thought ODST was going to be a squad shooter because of he could have been making it but turned out not to be a fully fledged game. Reach may just be the game he was brought in to help with.

    If it was a real game based on the Fall of Reach, it might be good. Especially if it goes over some of the same stuff as the book, like MAster Chief sneaking into a facility in a ships water tank, or the museum siege.

    Sounds cool. Having a downbeat ending would be fine. It would be epic. Don't need happy endings all the time, just a good game and story.

    That would be fucking awesome. The Fall of Reach is the single best part from the storyline.

    Yes.

    Usually what happens is I come here and post things at they leak/insider information, people say 'that's ludicrous', I take a nap, come back, and it's been reposted as news.

    Sweet! Finally something (else) to look forward too! Are Bungie making this or producing it?

    Fall of Reach was quite enjoyable... I'd like to see them use some of the story.

    The 'end' of the fall of Reach is the Pillar of Autumn making the jump you see it pulling out of at the start of Halo: Combat Evolved, when the first Halo is discovered. Could be a perfect prequel.

    If they wanted to tag Halo: CE onto it too, so I could actually play it again via VGA (stupid Xbox Originals version)I'd be okay with that. A bit like the new Riddick game.

    Wasn't there talk about a Halo Squad Based Ghost Recon style game talked about a while back? Maybe this is it?

    No, that's ODST. I reckon that this may be the first non bungie halo FPS. If they would throw in a reworked version of Halo 1 in the Halo 3 engine it would be a good bundle of pure joy.

    I thought this too, but then why would the forum appear on the bungie site? Whatever it is i'm pretty excited, hopefully something gets mentioned at E3!

    Hmm, I thought ODST was supposed to be a stealthier sort of Halo game, still similar to Halo 1/2/3... hence why it has halo 3 maps with it?

    It's similar in that it's a FPS.

    Yet another Mario/Zelda game! Do something else please Nintendo!

    Four Halo games have been released in eight years.

    This! It annoys me how so many people moan about another halo game, yet don't say a word when another metal gear solid comes out, or final fantasy etc.

    Check my posting history, I've had a moan about the next Kojima title no doubt being another MGS game. And I've certainly attacked Nintendo's franchise updates taking precedence over new IPs.

    If this is about reach then there is no way that it can be ODST. They already said that ODST takes place in new mombassa in between the time that the MC leaves earth again and comes back in H3.
