Microsoft have told us that Halo Reach is expected to be “the biggest title of 2010”. The game, which is a prequel to the original (and rather wonderful) Halo: Combat Evolved takes place during the Battle of Reach, featured in the Halo: The Fall of Reach book. Storywise, it’s set at the end of the human-convenant war and follows the actions of Noble Team, made up of six SPARTAN soldiers.
Elsewhere for 2010, Microsoft have several other exclusives: Spinter Cell Conviction, Crackdown 2, Mass Effect 2 and Alan Wake, alongside the DLC for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Halo Reach will be released this Christmas, alongside Fable 3.
