It depends if it's any good or not.

No, but I did buy Call of Duty 5 even though it wasn't made by Infinity Ward.

Halo is as generic as any other space marines shooter out there. it just happens to have a huge following.

i doubt i would play it at all.

#5 Posted by Demodocus (237 posts) -

Neither IMO.  Bungie is a talented group of people and I would like to see them do something that isn't halo related. (Doesn't look like that's gonna happen anytime soon though.)

#6 Posted by Death_Unicorn (2838 posts) -

I'm pretty sure I would buy it depending if it looks good or not, not just by developer name. Except if it's a developer I know can't make good games, or just naturally dislike their approach. Lastly, how can there be a Halo 4? Aren't all the Halos nullified and the Covenant and Humans at peace?

#7 Posted by Nat3TheGreat13 (260 posts) -

Prolly not, Bungie is one of my favorite developers.

#8 Posted by Grilledcheez (3947 posts) -

Probably, because to me, Halo 3 just felt wrong...so a fresh developer might liven the series back up for me.

I will be reluctant to buy a Halo game NOT made by Bungie. Bungie is a kick ass developer, one of the few console developers that gets involved with their community and their own games. They listen to the fans and always are on the ball when a new glitch or exploit pops up in a game, and fixes it. So unless the team that makes a Halo 4 is composed of  X-Bungie members and tries to do what Bungie does with its community, I will be relucant to buy it.

#14 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

So, would I buy Halo 4 if it was made by a developer NOT Bungie? Well, it all depends on if it is good or not. This far down the line, I don't know if any developer that is NOT Bungie can properly execute the Halo style, but Halo 3 was a bit stale so a new developer may be needed for innovation.

#15 Posted by Pie (7078 posts) -

GRIN should make halo4...

#16 Posted by Agent47CSim2 (1085 posts) -

Yes but there isn't going to be a Halo 4 as it's a trilogy.

Halo is not generic, I fail to see other space marine shooter in which the aliens were Religiously motivated to almost destroy every form of life in space to have salvation, and then only to find out that it is lies, and rebel against the religious leaders. One of the morals learned from Halo's story is that Religion is a dangerous weapon.

Yeah, just add one tiny aspect and it makes it completely different....

One tiny aspect? you mean the story?

Because story is just a 'tiny' bit of a game isnt it...

I was reading that MS are building their own internal Halo group and are in the process of hiring people. I think Halo 4 will not be made by Bungie but they will have some sort  of input. If they treat the source material with respect I feel they might come up with a good story for Halo 4.  MS are well known for being pushy with third party developers so I they probebly get even more pushier with development studios they own. Will halo 4 be made?, YES. Will Bungie make it?, Probably not.  I have a feeling that MS wants to turn Halo into their own CoD, by which I mean they will have some sort of  a halo game every year or two. What I can tell for sure is tht we are going to be saturated with Halo for the next 3 years. My prediction is that Halo 4 will be out by the end of 2011 or the beginning of 2012,


Halo 3: ODST - Semtember 22 2009
Halo: Reach - Fall 2010
Halo 4 - Fall 2011

Halo to me is synonymous with Bungie.  Therefore I would not buy a Halo game if it was not made by Bungie.

#24 Posted by AndrewB (7583 posts) -

Kind of a stupid poll. I would certainly *consider* buying it, but only if I knew anything about it. Specifically, how good of a game it was. It wouldn't be a certain buy, as no game is, with me. I didn't buy Halo 2 blindly, nor Halo 3.

#25 Posted by Moztacular (467 posts) -

I would hope its not made by Bungie; If i play one more halo campaign where half the levels involve me backtracking through terrain and buildings I've already been through, I'll puke. The series needs a fresh studio to put a new take on the series.

I want to feel as powerful as a Spartan in that series should. I want realistic gravity when I jump (no floating like im on the damn moon), speaking of which if I'm a super soldier I should be able to jump higher (even if the suit weighs a ton). Close combat should involve more than just a butt to the head with my gun. I wanna unload a clip of ammo at my enemy, then throw the empty gun at a brute so hard it gives him a concussion!

Despite what I just said I'm a moderate halo fan, bought 2 and 3 on day 1 of release and enjoyed them greatly; but I want something newer and better.

#26 Posted by Einherjan (588 posts) -
@Plasma: I stating that the game is barely different than the other space marine/alien games. Just adding some religious aspect to it doesn't exactly make it different than the 100s of other ones. It's more of a cop out. And yes, I have played this game as well as 100 of others that share the niche. You have to think about it, if Halo wasn't one of the launch titles for the original Xbox who it actually have sold as much as it did?
#27 Posted by mordukai (7150 posts) -
@Einherjan: imo, The Halo Franchise is what kept the original xbox afloat and single handedly kept it from being a total loss. I also think that without the Halo franchise there would have not been an xbox 360.
#28 Edited by Einherjan (588 posts) -
@Mordukai: Yeah, so? Still you have to think about it. It was a launch title. Maybe it was the only reason the two consoles kept a float. Theoretically, if there was a different launch titles for the two, I don't think it would've sold as well. Launch a system with a GTA game and I think it would've sold more copies. GTA4 sold more in it's first week and overall copies.
#29 Posted by Fallen189 (4988 posts) -

This is a fucking stupid question. Who cares?

Did you like Halo 1/2/3?

If so, chances are you'd like Halo 4.

#30 Posted by Einherjan (588 posts) -
@Fallen189: Good point. I forgot it was about Halo 4.
#31 Posted by JDoobs (92 posts) -
@Einherjan: You are aware that Halo redefined shooters with it's health system, correct? Including the Call of Duty franchise? So if you want to get technical about it, every shooter out there is now like Halo, rather than Halo not being any different than other shooters. Aside from that, the Halo universe goes far beyond the games should one choose to delve in to it. The environments and the characters were unique in my opinion. I just don't seem to recall any other game with the setting being on a giant space ring.
#32 Posted by crunchUK (5963 posts) -

HAlo reach IS halo 4... only it goes backwards in the storyline. Which is a good thiing. Anyway, halo is only halo as we know it because bungie made it.

You do know without Halo.  Xbox would have failed harder then the 3D0 and 360 would never exist.


#34 Posted by mordukai (7150 posts) -
@Shadow2K6: 3DO..wow, now there's a name I haven't heard in a loooooong time. I remember I friend of mine had it when they came out. 
#35 Posted by Giantsquirrel (601 posts) -

Neither. Even if Halo 4 isn't great and isn't made by Bungie, I'm sure it will be better than 2 and 3.

Yes but those 100 space marine/alien games came AFTER Halo.
#37 Posted by Zereta (1365 posts) -

Well, since The third game coming out of Bungie (yes, its been known that  Bungie is working on a third game) is not Halo-related, Halo 4 definitly won't be made by Bungie. Hence, I probably won'y buy it... But if it seems good...we'll see.

#38 Posted by Skambu (21 posts) -

I would only buy it if it was made by Data Design Interactive, or even Phoenix Games.

#39 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

I wouldn't buy it even if it was made by Bungie.

I somewhat disagree with this statement. The game could be drastically different in all aspects of how it's made and told all the way down to how the gameplay works.
#41 Posted by ArchScabby (5809 posts) -

I'd buy any game made by anybody as long as it's good.
 
It's kind of a dumb question, why would I not buy a good Halo game just because Bungie didn't make it?  I better question would be, "would you buy a crappy Halo game if Bungie made it?"  My answer would be no, because I'm not going to play a crappy game.

Wish I didn't buy ODST now
#43 Posted by ColumnBreaker (1162 posts) -

I'd probably care a hell of a lot more if there was a non-Bungie Halo game made. Not that I'd be hyped about it, I care so little about it as it stands that any little bit of interest is a vast improvement.

After ODST i would hope for new developer.

#46 Posted by Jolly_Lolly (3537 posts) -

Needs to be a "Maybe if it's good, no matter which developer makes it" option in the poll. 

#47 Posted by Nexas (625 posts) -

No Halo 3 wrapped up everything neatly. A Halo 4 would make absolutely no sense. They only way for a new Halo to work without being a prequel like Reach would be to make it like Unreal Tournament and make it completely multiplayer focused.

#48 Posted by Warfare (1633 posts) -

No but then i'm tired of Halo so i  wouldn't buy it if it was made by   Bungie.

#49 Edited by Fbomb (1168 posts) -

This is more a question for people that are already fans of the franchise. I've never liked Halo, and unless it was a major departure from the other games, I don't think it would matter who made Halo 4 for me. In that case, I think there would be a better chance of me buying Halo if it was made by someone else. That said, they would probably be forced to follow the same formula, so, either way, I don't think Halo will be the game for me. However, there will be millions of people that who will disagree with me at the inevitable Halo 4 launch day--regardless of the eventual developer.
 
That's a long way to say, it doesn't matter what I think...

#50 Posted by Ugalde (140 posts) -

I love me some Halo but it would deffinetly be decided by reviews.
