I honestly think MS and 343i are going to use the Halo2 remake as an experiment

I think theres a reason Halo 5 will probably be delayed till next year.

Theyre going to use the Halo 2 remake/remaster as an experiment to see if returning to the classic Halo MP experience would rejuvinate the series and bring Halo back to the top.

Think about it. CoD, even though its still huge, has started to fall off. People are finally getting tired of it. With Titanfall, BF4 and Ghosts, the class system/killstreak military style shooters are pretty f***ing saturated right now and are starting to overstay their welcome. Halo 4 sold well, then dropped like a f***ing rock. Loadouts, sprint, armor abilities, just do not work with Halo. The series was built on classic FPS/Quake/UT style MP, and built a name on that. Not this light cod style crap that they tried with Reach and Halo4.

So i honestly think Microsoft is going to use the upcoming Halo2 rewhatever to bring back Halo to its roots, and see if it sticks and if people are ready for a return to that style of FPS. If it does, i would not be surprised in the least if Halo 5 is a return to the classic Halo that we know and love.

I'll tell you right now, if Halo 2 truly comes back without all the Call of Duty crap, That's the day I buy an Xbox One. Yes, that is the game I would buy the system for. It'd be so worth it to relive the golden days of Halo.

Nostalgia is a hell of a drug. At least wait for reviews first, ya? I mean the first Anniversary wasn't so great and it's made by the exact same guys.

Of course you need to shut down anything positive towards the x1, even if it just a comment.

And what was wrong with anniversary? It had the original gameplay/graphics plus updated HD graphics and the best multiplayer halo had to offer IMO.

Yeah, maybe to you. I thought Anniversary was very well put together.
