Who would have thought the biggest hope for the Halo franchise, was simply to go back to the most controversial Bungie game?

Seriously. This looks like the most exciting thing out of Halo in ages.

I have a lot of fond memories of this game, and if they don’t pull their usual 343 nonsense, this may be an impetus for me to pick up an X, or a next-gen Xbox.

I'm still kinda salty that they announced the MCC for PC saying that it's coming out this year, yet there's no sight of it....I know I know, a delayed port is better than a broken port, but I hate being blue balled....

I was really hoping they were targeting september as the latest to drop Reach on both pc and Xbox (or atleast the campaign). Its been seven months since theyve announced reach coming to MCC and Ive grown very impatient.

How the mighty have fallen. I remember when the whole gaming community used to look forward to the next halo game, now it's more about making the old games look better.
Not really its just about completing the collection up to date with the others in MCC. I'm sure you know they working on Halo Infinite.

Most of the controversy came from the MP with it's design choices. Mainly adding suit abilities with CD's.

Most people loved the campaign, awesome sandbox environments, best weapon implementation for a campaign, no flood.

Multiplayer is not something you can easily excise out of a Halo game, though. It’s half the package, and some would argue, more.

Hence being a controversial Halo game.

For what it’s worth, personally, I loved the game, multiplayer and all.

I can't wait to die hundreds of times before I manage to get the new "If they came to hear me beg" achievement.

I would argue its a good mix of both. People come for master chief, people stay for multiplayer.

the lore is very important. Theres a reason why many of us have been chastising 343i for the last few releases (5’s mp is ok. but the campaign and story is an absolute travesty to what 4 and HtT were looking to set up. And dont even get me started on that shitty escalations comic series.)

Release it in the sea of quality titles in the holiday season, PC gamers ignore the title, complain that PC players dont buy games.

All the big fall releases for PC, Ghost Recon, Modern Warfare and Outer Worlds are in October. We don’t have a release date yet, but I bet if Reach releases in November or December, it should do fine. Microsoft should definitely steer clear of early next year, around the Doom and Cyberpunk release dates.

You know they are working on halo infinite right?
I fail to see what is the issue with releasing sth like this in between.

Sorry for this potential flame, but I’m not seeing a HUGE difference. Don’t get me wrong, the X is better, but not by a lot. Goes to show how beautiful the 360 version was/is.

Great game though.

I mean I definitely see a difference but it's not nearly as dramatic as the other games have been. The original game was absolutely gorgeous and I think this video really shows that as you said.

Cannot wait to hear that amazing Soundtrack all over again While I play through the Campaign. Loved it so much.

Halo 5 MP is my most played game this gen. But yeah, campaign story was poor.
I agree, Halo 5 MP had the right amount of intensity while maintaining that Halo feel. As for the maps, I wasn't a fan of most, especially the forged maps.

Performance is going to be the stand out here, and unfortunately that’s not something a YouTube video is going to do justice to here.

Reach on 360 performs pretty poorly. It has a terrible frame rate, lots of screen tearing, aliasing, and that God awful motion blur.

Thank god this is getting removed, I think they added it because of the frame rate.
