HD remakes are no longer a new thing, though ports of popular last gen games to the PS4 and Xbox One are in their infancy. We’ve already seen Tomb Raider make the jump, with The Last Of Us PS4 coming soon, and 4A’s Metro games getting a next gen touch up. Now a new rumour thanks to the unknown sources of Engadget have Master Chief’s conquests pegged for release on Xbox One, with a collection featuring Halos one, two, three and four apparently in development. However neither Reach or ODST are to be included.
There’s been rumours for a little while the Halo 2 would be getting an anniversary edition, as it has been ten years since that released on the original Xbox, and an E3 unveiling would be expected. However, having all four titles featuring Master Chief appear on the One before the release of Halo 5 may be a smart move, bringing in new fans and playing on the nostalgia of older fans. It’d also help recap the story so far of his exploits and set up the new entry to the series.
It’s unlikely Microsoft will comment on this, though if true it may be the big finish for the company’s E3 conference.
