>Halo: Combat Evolved remake coming soon

>

According to Joystiq a remake of Halo: Combat Evolved will be launch this holiday season for Xbox 360 with a complete visual overhaul.

The remake is allegedly being developed by New Jersey-based Saber Interactive, the company behind TimeShift and Namco’s upcoming Inversion.

Rumor is that the game won’t simply be a re-release of the 2001 game set at a higher resolution, but that it is being remade with entirely new art assets.

The game is expected to support 1080p resolution and 3D televisions. No details have emerged on multiplayer– yet, but the remake will likely feature online co-op (the original game supported two-player split-screen co-op).

    >It's nice to see games getting an upgrade/makeover. It's a shame that you have to be a decent seller to get the treatment. There are many games I would love to replay with modern graphics.

  16. >I always thought the first one had the best single player campaign by far. Looking forward to this. Just one question, will Masterchief be played by Daniel Craig this time?

  17. CRS says:

    >The original was my fav so maybe I'll be looking forward to this, but I'm surprised its considered outdated enough to need updated at all.

  18. Banacek says:

    >Halo and 1080p seems like a nice combo.

  28. G says:

    >Part of me is a bit sad over this – leave a classic a classic…don't go down the movie route of trading originality for sure fire success…I'm sure it'll rock though

  29. Rawr says:

    >nice post, keep it up

  30. >I don't understand how it's going to output 1080p when the 360 doesn't handle native 1080p.Cool idea though.
