Any Halo surprises in store for us at E3?

Just wanting to know whether or not we will see anything Halo at this year’s E3. Just a yes or no answer would be great. It would make for good discussion and speculation.

Any thoughts on what 343 could be brewing up for its Halo fans?

Well it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if they told us now.

This.
It wouldn’t be worth telling us right now. It’d ruin everything.

Without a shadow of a doubt, yes.

Frankie has been hinting that 343i are working on something, multiple somethings, to celebrate Halo’s 10th birthday this year.

Additionally, we know they are hiring staff and work has begun on a proper Halo title.

So, yeah, we’ll be getting something this year. Go in with low expectations - say a teaser trailer, and whatever happens you’ll not be disappointed.

Yes, they have been hinting at something big for Halo’s 10th anniversary. Unfortunately, my mind is already set on a Halo remake, so (unless if they manage to meet or even top that) I may be a little dissappointed.

Really though, any new Halo announcement gets me excited, including map packs (Defiant Maps are awesome by the way, thanks 343 and CA!).

Just remember, you can go play Halo CE right now, in HD. Your Xbox upscales the game fine and on PC you can play it at 60 FPS and HD without a hitch - even older PC’s with modest graphical capabilities can play it just fine.

Same goes for Halo 2.

High expectations and baseless rumours often lead to disappointment.

I have both Halo 1 downloaded on my Xbox 360 and Halo 2 for PC.

Anyway, back on topic. I doubt that there will be anything regarding the next big Halo game (prove me wrong 343!) but I know for sure that whatever they have planned for the Halo’s 10th year will be cool.

Imagine if they announced a spin off of Reach where you play as Jun and escort Dr. Halsey to Onyx, that would be awesome. Many beautiful vistas to behold at Onyx!

I expect something pretty cool, if not it will be a horrible 10yr anniversary.

I wouldn’t be too upset if there was no huge game announcement. That would just add to the anticipation of a new game. I would like to see some cool stuff released along the lines of collectibles.

I reckon’ we’ll find out in about 3 months, but I am definitely excited! :stuck_out_tongue:

(Speaking of which, I really need to get myself to an E3 one of these years…)

It would be cool to get a free map
