Source is a new "insider" on NeoGAF.

A bunch. I'm gonna take it a little easy because I'm sure someone is, or will be pounding their fist into a mahogany desk overlooking the Redmond campus.

What has me excited right now is the revisiting of Halo. So later this year we're gonna get Halo 2 Anniversary edition WITH ALL SORTS OF ####. On Xbox One. November 11th!


Halo 2 Anniversary Edition
-
Halo 5 beta access
Halo real time show... think Forward Unto Dawn (not the Spielberg stuff)
Someone told me there was going to be an alternative ####ing ending. <-- I have zero info as to whether this is legitimate or not

So Halo 5 Beta access? If this is true I think that means we won't be seeing Halo 5 until next year now.

I would not mind this at all.

I was very pleased with the Halo 1 Anniversary release. If they put the same care into Halo 2, great.

Hopefully they'll keep the original MP gameplay in, didn't care for the later ones as much.

Insider? Was it Edward Snowden? I'll believe it when I see something official. Not a lot of these "leaks" have had much truth to them lately.

That would be epic.  Hopefully he's not wrong about this.

If this is true then maybe or they release it in December after a short beta.

Well I guess Microsoft never said which Halo they're releasing this year...

 

Halo 2 on the Halo 5 engine... now I like this rumour  (Y)  :fun:

Best MP on OG Xbox, ever :wub:

 

Hell, it could give more than 90% of 360 games a run for their money today.

Wow, this escalated quickly :|

Andy/George, can you rename this thread or do we start another?

http://www.neogaf.co...ad.php?t=760013
 

If you're joining the thread then this Bish-verified insider ntkrnl has been UNLEASING THE BOMBS.

Here's all the stuff so far he's said in this thread:

  • Forza Horizon: "Fall 2014, probably September. Super sexy weather system and... ###### tons of co-op/social stuff. 1080P and open-world, so you can road trip with your bros."
  • White Xbone incoming.
  • Why all the leaks? Scared you might get caught? "I am incapable of fear. Plus, this is such exciting stuff, and me talking about it ahead of time isn't going to hurt anything, truthfully. We're all chomping at the bit for it to come out. This is not bad. "
  • Halo Anniversary 2 will be 1080p, iffy on the 60fps, maybe not.
  • Quantum Break is Holiday 2014
  • Multiplayer confirmed for HA2, same devs as Halo Anniversary.
  • Sunset Overdrive is Fall 2014
  • Is not Phil Spencer
  • Black Tusk cancelled project was called "Shangheist." May have involved stealing stuff from the Chinese (though I think that may have been a reference to the name and maybe not the gameplay? Not sure...)
  • Fable Legends is Summer 2015
  • Halo 2 Anniversary includes beta for Halo 5
  • Gears of War will probably need a 2.5 year dev time.
  • First Titanfall DLC is 45 days from release, then another one 120 days from release.
  • No Crackdown 3 news this year most likely, since it's a 2016 title.
  • A list w/dates of the rest of the Tier 2 and Tier 3 countries that Xbone will release in this year.
  • No info/idea on what Rare's up to, sadly.
  • $399 XB1 this year? "Maybe one without an Optical Disc Drive."
I'm heading out so people update this list accordingly...

If it brings Halo 2 MP in HD it can't come quick enough.

Since these are all rumors at this point if people are going to start talking about all the other things then a new topic should be started IMO.

Halo 2 trumps all other Halo releases, by far IMHO. It was the most pure multiplayer fun I had in a shooter, ever. All the subsequent ones just added too much stuff without adding much value. If they can bring that back and up it for the Xbox One then I'm all in!!

One thing about the other rumors posted here.

If MS were to release an X1 without a bluray drive, perhaps they are waiting to do that until they have their software features in place. I'm referring to features that allow things like the digital game sharing, or even the ability to resell/trade those games.

If they did bring about more digital management features, then a digital only console makes more sense. Plus, this should not fragment the user base at all unlike doing something like removing Kinect. Developers wouldn't be impacted much at all since all games are already pushed for digital release. I could see many users willing to buy such a console, especially if its $100 cheaper.

For me, I still like having the drive there for buying some retail games and for media purposes, so I think making a second sku is the best way to go about that. Let us pick the way we want to consume media.

If true I'll be looking forward to this more than I did when 4 was coming out. 2 is by far my favorite in the series; so many good memories with that one.
