Halo Combat Evolved HD Remake is Real, Releases This Year
All of those rumors about a Halo 1 remake have finally come to fruition. It has come out that a remake of the 2001 version of Halo Combat Evolved is a reality, and it will release this holiday season.
The remake is being handled by Saber Interactive, the team behind Timeshift and Inversion. Even better is that it won't simply be a new paint of coat on the original 2001 game, but rather they will be remaking all of the art assets at full 1080p and even with support for 3D. The game is also expected to feature 4-player online co-op and multiplayer.
The other interesting thing to come out of this news is that it is not being handled by 343 Industries. That means that all that Halo hiring that 343 has been doing lately must indeed be for an all-new, full fledged Halo game and not just for the remake of Halo 1.
