The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Spencer on Halo 2 HD: "Multiplayer Would Have to Be Fantastic"

Posted on Thursday, March 27 @ 16:00:00 PST by Alex_Osborn


If the rumors are true and a Halo 2remake is in fact coming, fans can rest assured that it will boast some killer multiplayer.

In an interview with IGN, Xbox exec Phil Spencer entertained the notion thatHalo 2 Anniversaryis coming, saying that in this hypothetical situation, the folks over at 343i would have to "nail" the multiplayer.

With a grin on his face, Spencer told the outlet:
In this fictitious world where that game existed, it’s an easy answer: it has to be just the multiplayer experience that we all found in that firstHalo 2game. If you think about what happened in the franchise and what were the hallmark moments – when did duel wielding come in, when did another playable character that wasn’t Master Chief come in?

All the things that you and I know about the evolution of the franchise, if you’re going to say one thing aboutHalo 2, you’re going to talk about real multiplayer. I think you just have to nail that in just such a fundamentally core way. Frankly [we'd have to do it] probably better than we did with Halo 1 Anniversary. I thought the multiplayer in Halo 1 Anniversary was good, but Halo 1 never had multiplayer in the truest sense, so it always was going to be something different.

If there were something called Halo 2 Anniversary, I think the multiplayer would have to be fantastic.


I don't know about you, but I am absolutely ecstatic after hearing this from Mr. Spencer. After the disappointingmultiplayer ofHalo: CEAthat was basically just a glorified Halo: Reachmap pack, I feared thatHalo 2 Anniversarymay take a similar approach, but basedthe words of Spencer, ifa remake does come—which is all but confirmed at this point—we'll get the tried-and-trueHalo 2experience from the good old days.
