No…not the movie. A new Halo GAME. Yea, I WTF’d too. That, of course, has no bearing on how good or bad the game’ll be, of course, but it WON’T be Halo 3 nor the upcoming Halo RTS that’s being made by Ensemble Studios (of Age of Empires fame).
These are just a FEW of the announcements made at Microsoft’s keynote @ X06.
Microsoft is pulling out all the stops in its X06 Keynote today in Barcelona. The announcements are flying fast and furious: Ensemble studios is making a Halo RTS, and Peter Jackson is making a new Halo game (unrelated to Halo 3 or the RTS). The HD-DVD will be $200 in the U.S. with a release aimed at November of this year. They’ve got a good deal of 360 exclusive content including the next Splinter Cell and GTA IV Episodes, and (initially) Bioshock.
Bioshock will also be on Windows, of course. Windows is also the
platform on which Microsoft is announcing a new Massively Multiplayer
game from Cryptic Studios, a new super-hero MMOG based on Marvel
Comics’ IP: Marvel Universe Online.
