We currently do not have plans to release any Halo titles on Steam, nor do we currently have plans to release a PC version of Halo 3.

In my opinion the use of 'we currently have no plans,' is sidestepping the question and not a flat out denial but leaving it open to interpretation.

Very interesting.

Franchise development director Frank O'Connor has told The Official Xbox Magazine in the UK that no major Halo release is slated for 2011...

"There'll certainly be more Halo fiction entering the universe, but we've no new games to announce right now."

Pressed again for word on Master Chief in 2011, O'Connor added, "I imagine he will be chilling. Literally."

Can you comment on the rumour about a remake of Halo: Combat Evolved?

Well like you just said, it's a rumour. And if you really really want to play Halo: Combat Evolved in 720p HD, go to Games on Demand. It's there right now for like $9.99!

I'm sure it'll carve out its own healthy slice of the Steam community a la Call of Duty, assuming it's Steamworks or otherwise not GFWL.

Wasn't impressed with the game on 360, but a PC release could be much improved and breathe some life into the multiplayer.

They should let Epic bring the rest of the Gears series while they're at it.

That would be completely dependent on a lot of things, such as modding support, OS requirements, GFWL, DRM, proper support for non-360 controller input, and general port quality, etc. Issues with those things are what killed halo 2 vista

I'll probably get the game if this turns out to be true (and the game is not exclusive to windows 8). I've heard lots of good things about the game but I don't enjoy playing fps's with a pad.

- Valve working on Steambox
- Valve lets a bunch of people go.
- M$ helps Dell go private.
- Piston will be Windows

So... Steam to come with all Windows machines + Dell distributes 'official' Steambox. Linux threat was a negotiating tactic.

I wonder if Halo: CE will become Halo: CEA. Sabre3D is a multi-platform engine, so much of the heavy lifting is already out of the way, plus the game has a toggle to switch between the classic and updated graphics.

Man, Halo 3 multiplayer was so awesome. Popping a grav lift to get to the top of the tower on High Ground and then shotgunning a few unsuspecting enemies was so satisfying. And bubble shields never got old.

I really didn't care for the prevalence of mutual melee kills, though.

Whatever happened with Steamworks on PS3? Everyone made a big deal about it at the time and it seems to have gone nowhere.
