Re: My Guess:

In Response To: My Guess: (Kal)

: I think this is overstating what 343 is actually going to do.

: It would be a little silly for them to re-release the multiplayer for Halo 3
: and Halo 4, since they're both available on the 360 right now. Plus,
: releasing four games worth of mutliplayer hoppers would seriously fracture
: the (relatively small) player base for the XB1. You're talking 50,000 or
: fewer players for each game at launch .

: I bet what we're going to get is Halo 2: Anniversary, with ports of the Xbox
: 360 versions of the Halo CE, Halo 3, and Halo 4 campaigns. So you'll be
: able to play the campaigns of all four games as well as play Halo 2
: multiplayer.

: Of course, if you really want to get into the weeds of speculation, consider
: this: What if these aren't really ports of CE, 3, and 4? What if Microsoft
: is launching backwards compatibility with either emulation or cloud
: streaming? They showed off Halo 4 on the Xbox One during a developer's
: conference last year, so it's a possibility.

: Also, unlike today's Halo 5 news, this news isn't coming from 343 and
: Microsoft is declining to comment. I bet this is going to be officially
: announced at E3. With Microsoft releasing so much news (Price drop, Games
: With Gold, Sunset Overdrive, Halo 5) prior to E3, they're going to need
: some mega bombshells at their press conference.

: Bombshells like backwards compatibility through cloud streaming.

I don't see why people keep thinking that re-releasing H2 MP is a smart idea? Why on Earth would that happen when Halo 5 comes out in a year? Why go through all that trouble for a YEAR of possible play time, and then hope people switch over to Halo 5 MP?

It makes more sense to release the campaign ONLY for H2 (if they are for the other titles, that's something else to discuss).

343 and Microsoft have really been pushing the Chief as the core of their Halo- remastering the campaigns of his story make sense, leading up to Halo 5.

But this notion that we're going to see H2A multiplayer is rubbish.

It would be MORE likely to get a remastered campaign now, and then maybe see the Halo 2 MP MAPS (some or all) make a return in Halo 5 (realllly hope they wouldn't insert them into Halo 4).

This is where my money is.
