A misterious title called "Bootcamp" appeared in Korean Game Rating Board today.

The platform is PC/online game (could be package or online game), and the game description read as following:


"A TPS game based on 'Halo' universe where player complete various types of missions."

Maybe an online, Halo Waypoint game that will tie in with something else?

I think when they showed Halo 3 in Japan the audience gasped (Yes litterally gasped) when they went into Third person (held a turret). Maybe that is in their back pocket for Japan.

Wow, this piece of news is hardly getting the attention it deserves.

But then again, the given description is probably the least exciting thing I've ever read. The player completes various types of missions? Lol.

This could be absolutely huge news. Or it could be nothing.

So is this official or a knock-off for Asian markets? If it is real and Microsoft are looking into the PC market it, lends credence to those Halo 1/2/3 Steam database entries.

I feel like this has to be a 360/One title, or a PC f2p that is promoting an upcoming 360/One game.

if it was coming to 360, it would have gotten rated for 360. for now it was only rated for PC. of course, it could come to xbone in the future.

Hm... Then Im gonna go with free PC game that ties into a fall Halo title.

Get your solider ready for battle by playing "bootcamp". Maybe its something where you can unlock pieces of armor, etc. for an upcoming title. I doubt a full fledged Halo game will get a PC release.

This definitely is real, and it certainly doesn't seem like Kinect games or anything of the sort. I think the thread title should be changed, its easy to miss the fact its a Halo title..and for the PC. This is kinda big I think.

Microsoft publishing a Halo game (even a third-person spinoff) for PC when they're trying to launch the Xbone makes absolutely no sense. I am highly skeptical.

Didn't a poster here just randomly guess something like this was coming or wanted something like this? I think he even used a bootcamp style terminology and PC and nextbox comments. It was in one of the threads. Guess it could have been a lucky guess but its Ms Clio odd.

Translated here it sounds like it may be the rumoured Halo 3 PC port.

^ OP is Korean and said it was a TPS. Also, I believe Halo 3 was rated "18" not "15".

(But it did go through my mind it may be Halo 1-3; a "bootcamp" experience to get ready for future titles)

I'm thinking its not actually coming to PC, but perhaps Xbox One.. Maybe they reviewed it on the "PC" as to not leak the concept of a Next Gen Xbox early. Still, why would they need to review the game so early?

But the site is legit, the listing is legit.. So, I think this is legit, but we aren't getting the full picture.

When it comes to spinoffs and peripheral things like this, Microsoft's been more open-minded in recent years. They launched that Halo Dew app on iOS, didn't they? This is similar in that it'll promote the brand and make some money, but won't steal the main series' thunder at all.

Bootcamp features attacks on your hand by male and females, cursors, and lightning bolts (three of them!).

There's also chatting, empty syringes, rock band drums, and sacks of silly Wario money.

> could be a casual game for Windows 8 store, it's not even named Halo, but it's in Halo Universe.

What, they commented? Haha interesting:

What’s Bootcamp? It is not related to our Xbox One efforts, or the Reclaimer Saga, but rather a project we’re very enthusiastic about and will have more to say about in the near future.

Hmmm.

Yeah, usually they say something to make it sound like its not happening but a possibility until its offically confirmed. Weird that they just flat out confirmed it.
