    As the title reads, would it ever be possible to port the pc version of Halo Ce to switch? I would even donate to see this happen if its possible

    I'm not an expert on this, but I think the game has to be open source to be able to port it (unless emulation is an option), so unless Halo CE is open source, I don't think it's going to happen

    Not likely at all. We'd need someone to write an open source engine for it first. So far the only one out there is TiaraCE but I don't think it's functional at all yet. Project is less than a year old, and hasn't had any new commits since March, so I think it might be dead.

    You'd probably be better off finding Halo maps that have been re-created to run in an engine that has already been ported, like DOOM, Quake 1, or Quake 2.

    Like others have said, a combat evolved port will likely never come to be.

    But Halo Revamped would probably be do-able. Assuming someone is interested porting it that is.
