The only thing I know is that I was realy looking forward to that game when I read about it in PC game magazines. And then came microsoft who needed a hit game for launch and bought the rights

It has loose roots in the Mac game, Marathon. Marathon was/is a very good Doom-like 3D shooter.

Very true! Which by the way you can download for free! I remember that game in middle school..... It was the best thing ever.. multiplayer action mmmm. I guess bungie made a comeback with a system they saw had alot of potential.

More like: Microsoft bought Bungie because they needed a killer app for the original Xbox.

Back on topic: the Halo world concept was probably lifted from the Ringworld books.
