It's just been announced that a remake of Halo: Combat Evolved is coming out on November 15, 2011. It will feature new graphic assets, Co-Op, Xbox Live and even 3D. This is huge news!
 
EDIT: There is a typo in the title lol.

Cool, I like this more than 343 making it. They should be worrying about the next actual Halo.  So if it's a competent upgrade and Diablo 3 doesn't come out this year, I'll probably get it.  Never finished CE.

On second thought, if they remake the multiplayer awesomely so its just like OG CE then this might just be the best thing ever!

Yeah that would be great but Bungie is not developing the game so I'm just worried a bit lol.

@ISuperGamerI: Pretty sure the only Xbox game I finished was Spiderman 2. Just like Jet Set, all of the GTAs, and a couple of other games at the time,they were fun but I went back to D2.

It's only for the Xbox? Damn. I was hoping for a PC release as well.

Why not just make a new game? It's not like Halo CE has become unplayable in the last eight or nine years since it's release.

@ISuperGamerI: yeah, thats why i wanna convince myself it will be bad. That way if its good then i can be really happy and surprised. If its bad i can be all smug and superior by telling everyone that i told them so.

Cool. I am totally excited for this. Not sure why. I won't be playing Co-op. I might play online, but I am still totally stoked.
 
Edit: I don't like that Sabre is developing it. I always assumed 343 was a developer but maybe not? Can't know how it'll be until its out I guess.
 
Also, damn. I did not know that it will soon be 10 years since the original Halo.

That's because Bungie has already announced that they have completed the Halo game franchise.

The game is going to be released on the 10 year anniversary, it's kinda the point. I don't think its become unplayable, the PC version probably holds up amazingly but online coop, updated assets, and achievements are an excellent proposition for someone who played and didn't finish it 10 years ago.

How is that any different from any other game franchise? 
Halo CE is still considered the best of the series, I think it's a great way to celebrate the 10th anniversary. 
 
Though I would like to see them give it a rest after this.

I didn't know it was the 10th as I didn't read it but that makes it a bit more understandable.  But still. FUCK.

@WinterSnowblind: Also when it gets to the point Halo or Call of Duty has, I don't support it anymore.  Sequels are made for the soul purpose of going off it's previous game's hype and when it comes the 5th sequel or remake or whatever fuuuuck that.

As long as you're as sick of any Sony franchise with more than one game getting an "HD Collection" I will sympathize with you. 

But if I ever happen upon a post in your history where you're praising some other remastered game - you will suffer the mild, mild wrath of me thinking of you as a hypocrite - until I forget the next day.

It's not that I don't like Halo CE, it's actually one of my favourite games of all time, it's just that I've already played through it's stroy, and this is the laziest possible way to make the next Halo. What's next, Gears of War HD in 2014?

I hope they didn't do anything to the weapons and that's it's the same game in HD with online play.

@ProfessorEss: Haha fair  enough. And I don't agree with how they suck all that remastered shit dry.  Though I did buy Super Puzzle Fighter 2 HD remix and Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 HD, which the latter was a complete mistake due to a lot of alcohol.

That doesn't count - puzzle games gotta do what they gotta do.
I would also ignore any comments you may or may not have made in support of a HD Tetrisphere remake.

See, normally I'm against all these HD remakes, but Halo is a fine game that I'd love to see get a fresh coat of paint. The single player campaign is still by far the best in the series, but I really want online co-op and competitive modes for the original game. I don't want to play goddamn Coagulation or whatever the hell it's called at this point, I want BLOOD GULCH. I want Hang 'Em High and Battle Creek. What I wouldn't give to play through those maps again.

So this is the 6th halo game using the same formula with the same weapons? hmm..

Wouldn't an HD collection make more sense, since the stories rely on each other so damn much?

I would agree with you but only on the first 2 games (since Halo 3 is already in HD...kind of) and extra content would also be cool.

It would probably be better to include Halo 3, since, from what I understand, Halo 2 ends on a cliffhanger. If you include Halo 3, you don't piss off fanboys :P.

I was thinking the same thing, I was expecting 343 to be doing this but unless they are busy on doing a new Halo game, this is understandable. I'm kinda bummed though that this won't be running on the Reach engine. That would have been awesome.

Hopefully they don't change any core game mechanics. They change how the pistol works at all and I'll be pissed.

CTF BLOODGULCH LET'S GO WHO GOT THE WARTHOG STUCK IN THE BASE WTF 
 
 As someone who hasn't played a Halo since (no X-Box), that was a really awesome game. I think it's a little (get this now) underrated. I think it's slow pacing and really simple gameplay (not too many weapons, 2 grenades, no powerups) made for a really different experience when it came out. It really distilled multiplayer shooters into something clean, elegant, and super competitive.

Heh Timeshift was okay, but I guess if the story, gameplay, weapons, and characters are already done for them, I can see them making a competent remake for sure.  
 
I just don't know if I feel like playing that campaign again. I did it so much in the Xbox's first three or so years of existence.

I'm implying that I don't play pokemon anymore because all they do is add more pokemon and change some names.
