Why did 343 not make Halo 2 a standalone game?

I think the only way for 343 to recover from the MCC is to make a standalone halo 2 game. It should also be free to all the people that have been fighting to play MCC all this time.

So… You want 343 to re-launch the game we can already play just fine, and make it standalone? What would be the point. The MCC servers are somewhat better now, and the campaign is working fine. It would be pointless to re-launch the game. There’s only 6 remastered maps for MP. Imagine just playing the same 6 maps over and over again. It wouldn’t work.

Halo 1 got a standalone. So why can’t halo 2? Also somewhat better is not fixed and no real halo fan would call it “pointless”!

Halo: CEA essentially boiled down to a better looking campaign and multiplayer maps for Halo: Reach. Halo 2A campaign works on the MCC and updates for the MCC’s multiplayer component are coming. There isn’t much of a point to do a standalone version.

Because it’s part of the “Chief Collection”
