    Bungie's got no plans of leaving Halo: Reach alone even when they've already penned an agreement with Activision for a new IP. Brian Jarrard, Bungie community director, reassures the adoring fans that they will continue their support for the latest iteration of their money-making franchise.

    Don't get your hopes up, though, and think that there will be another Halo game in the future. As they've reiterated time and again as of recent memory, this is the last one for them. "But beyond that we will not be working on any more Halo -- we will be completely focused on bringing our next universe to light. From there Microsoft will take the Halo universe in the direction they see fit."

    i've played the 1st 2 the 1st was great the 2nd was the same as the 1st except with 2 guns and than it just went downhill from there being nothing but another generic shooter for the big shitload of already shooters out there for consoles.

    no it wasn't it was exactly the same damn game except with different level designs and able to hold 2 guns. this is what they do when they make a new halo from now on nothing ever changes (except the gfx which i don't give a fuck about!). halo fell victim to the run and gun rule which is what every single shooter these days does except for 1: bioshock.

    Halo whores don't invade. Halo hater whores invade.

    Odds are there will be Halo games after Reach (like a Halo Wars sequel and probably a few other different titles using the same name), but I doubt there'll be any more main series Halo games.

    As per myself, I've never been too fond of Halo.

    but both Bioshock 1 & 2 are terrible games, they may have changed but still terrible [​IMG]

    Halo 3 was a lot better than COD ect but i do get were people are coming from, they just add a tiny bit of content and there you go, the next sequel [​IMG]

    I believe you haven't played those two games. Blah, its your opinion.

    Anyway, I've never gotten into Halo, as I find it pretty boring. I've only tried Halo 3 though. Maybe Reach will be more interesting?

    Since Microsoft owns the IP they can easily bring another developer to make another Halo game. I hope they release Halo 3 on the PC.
    No developer will be as good as Bungie is at developing Halo games!

    This topic proves why the user submitted news section is a complete joke.

    Of course they'll be more Halo, it just wont be made by Bungie. And honestly who cares? I'm pretty sure someone else could do just as good a job if not better. Halo is a pretty basic formula.

    Get Halo 2 for the PC, then.
    Might be hard to find, though.

    I have never been a fan of Halo. I can see why people are fans of the series and I would love to play it as my friends will be playing Reach like crazy but i could never bring myself to put in the time to finish the campaigns (which is what I buy most of my games for). that said, I did enjoy playing the Multiplayer disc that I got from ODST. I have been interested in getting it again, ONLY for the multiplayer because the story may as well not exist in my opinion.

    The Halo formula as you call it is the same formula used by every fucking shooter game available for the most part. Aside from games like Bioshock and Half Life which have actual stories, or Unreal Tournament or Counter Strike which are purely focused around massively multiplayer playing, Halo is the same mind numbing bullshit that only brainless zombies actually buy and play. People who actually buy into that kind of trash don't have any clue what a good shooter is and the developers don't know any concepts of making a good unique shooter.

    Why so serious? Some people like Halo and you don't. Tough shit. There's no reason to get your panties in a bunch just because you don't like something. The biggest problem with the game industry isn't generic shooters like Halo, its elitist snobs who spew their bile on the Internet as if someone actually cares about their opinion.
