View Full Version : EGM rumor of Halo MMO?

Neat topic and would be cool to see something like a Halo theme'd Planetside...but done better.


The Rumor Mill page of EGM's December issue may have just revealed what Peter Jackson's Halo project is all about:

"Microsoft may start a war--word is they're making a massively multiplayer online first-person shooter for 360. Hmm, wonder what Bungie is up to?"
We know for a fact that Bungie isn't done with the Halo universe yet and that the newly independent developer is in on Peter Jackson's Halo project. Since his secret game's genre is still undefined, it's definitely possible that it could be an MMO title. Granted, Microsoft has gone out of its way to refer to Jackson's Halo project as "interactive entertainment" as opposed to a "video game," so this may be an entirely new adventure in the Halo universe. But, having an unlimited amount of Spartans fighting each other is what I would call interactive entertainment, too.

Furthermore, what better way is there to introduce the MMO genre to legions of console gamers than to have Halo spearhead the effort

Everyone would be a Spartan. I doubt that MS is working on a Halo MMOFFS or anything of the kind at this time. This rumour probably came out of the research being done at MS to enable 100+ players to interact in the same enviroment without lag, etc..

Maybe it'll be like the Star Wars MMO where you can't be a jedi, but you can be a belly dancer... well let's hope it's not like that.
