Halo: Combat Evolved was the first and arguably the best title in the series. For a long time, it has been rumored that we will see a remake of the Bungie classic. It has finally been confirmed for this holiday season with a completely new visual overhaul!
Sources have explained that it wont be just the same game with updated graphics, it will have completely new art assets. The audio and story will most likely be completely unchanged. The controls, however, will be revamped to the most recent configuration that we see in ODST and Reach. The Halo: Combat Evolved remake is allegedly being developed by New Jersey-based Saber Interactive, the company behind TimeShift and Namco’s upcoming Inversion.
The remake will support 1080p resolutions and 3D televisions. Not all the details on multiplayer have been worked out yet, but from what is understood, it will feature online co-op for the campaign (the original just supported two player split-screen co-op).
Expect to see the game re-evolve on November 15th, 2011, exactly ten years since the launch of the original alongside the Xbox itself. As far as we know, Bungie has no plans of upgrading Halo 2 at this time.
