Official statement from Bungie
[Checks Calendar to see if it's April 1st]
D'oh! This sucks.
Yeah, that sucks.
But, considering the great stuff that "supposed" to come out this year, ie. Deus Ex II, Doom 3, Thief III, ect...this isn't all that devastating.
And, if it gives Bungie time to make it live up to it's hype, it's worth it in the end.
Is Thief III coming out for Xbox? I have to add that to my list in that other thread about anticipated Xbox games then...
Halo 2...I can wait.
Deus Ex II in 2003? I'll be surprised if Deus Ex II makes it as well, giving the developers history.
Big blow to the XBox's holiday plans though, and sales.
Guess my new TV can wait 'til next year. . .
Excellent point about XBox Live. We'll know more at E3 this year what Microsoft's plans are, but without a big Live draw, few may sign up. People will only play Mechassault for so long.
What about Crimson Skies? Will it be online? Hopefully it'll be out this fall (finally).
There are so many FPS/Mech types games coming out this year or are out already i think people can wait a bit
Im probably forgeting a few
The real problem is that except for Mechassault, I can play all those titles on my PC for free. And I get a keyboard with a mouse, free updates, better resolution, maybe extra content. So why would I pay MS $120 a year to accept less? I can by 2.5 more games at that price.
Halo 2 was THE reason I was going to continue with XBL after next Nov. Maybe some other games can arrive to convince me to remain in the meantime, but they need something compelling and exclusive to XBL. I don't think I'm in a minority in the way I approach this either.
Good. Don't rush the game. Bungie can take all the time they need to make the game as good as possible. I want to see more varied and unique level design, better AI, superb graphics, more vehicles and a rock solid Xbox Live experience. If that takes a little more time than expected I'll be glad to wait.
Of course it always diappointing to have to wait for something you want so badly...(Yes me want to run over HTF folk online with a warthog in Halo 2 more than anyone) but I'm sure no one here wants a rushed product.
I wonder if this will lead to any speculation of an increase of the chance of "Halo 1.5 Online" being announced at E3.
Even if its ready, I'd hold off and properly milk the console cows for every drop attainable. Its still selling strong, otherwise it would have been discounted already.
But I'd rather have them make it right.
Wonder if Halo 1.5 does become a viable option then?
Hopefully this won't join Half-Life 2 and Duke Nukem Forever in the black hole of game development.
Calvin/Brian...Halo 1.5 does not exist & never has been announced. I'm sure speculation will increase about this, but I don't think it'll happen.
Morgan, this is the first official announcement of any sort regarding the release date, so until 2005 arrives, the game is right on schedule.
Actually, Halo for PC is sort of Halo 1.5, I think. It's Halo, changed for the PC, and includes online play.
Morgan, you know fine well that's not what we're talking about - don't confuse the issue. And Dan, I know it hasn't been announced. It's been much rumoured though
Brian, yeah I know. I just refuse to set myself up for any disappointments. If it does come out, then it'll be a pleasant surprise...if it doesn't, that's fine - because it never was supposed to come out.
