Rumor: Halo 2 coming to Mac, iOS

343 sent out a message to players of Halo 2 on Windows Vista today saying that Halo 2 will be released for Mac and iOS soon. This hasn't been confirmed yet and could be an early slip of something that will be announced later. (Halo 2, iPad, iPhone, PC)

Why...i like Halo, i think Mac has it's place in this world but why? I thought this version of halo flopped harder than free whilly jumping freedoms edge!

Why? Its an attempt to recruit people to HALO and on to Xbone, nothing more.

I'm super happy about it as I have a Macbook and no PC( I would love to get a gaming PC but as a graphic designer, having a Mac is pretty much required in that industry)
Drummerdude41  +   743d ago
I think i stated my disposition wrong. I am all for gaming on mac's, i have a macbook pro and loved playing tf2 on it. My problem is the halo 2 game they ported to windows was more or less a failure. It had a different game speed and different mechanical approach than the Xbox version which stole my heart during that generation as the tops fps i would play. I don't like how they would try to report a port that is very far from optimized on the pc version to a most likely further dumb'd down (hopefully not) version just for money. Also #morganfell, My "why" was intended to be hysterical not actually a question. In the end i really don't care what happens but it's hard for me ( as i have a degree in Game design and 3d simulation) to watch one of bungie's creative dreams that was brought to life be "re-imagined" for pure profit.

With apples new gaming controller certification I hope to see more console games make its way to iphone. Virtual controls suck but with a unified control scheme it could be a better platform.

Console games do not belong on phones.

Go buy xcom enemy unknown for ios, some games work on touch and some do not.

This was rumored to be part of the announcement coming next month of Halo 1 - 3 coming to Steam with no GFWL, but instead full Steamworks support.

You won't release Halo 3, 4, ODST / w/e but you'll release Halo 2 for iOS and MAC. Are you FU**ing kidding me.

Yet another good job Microsoft jesus what idiot do you guys have running the company now, I thought Bill Gates wasn't the CEO good lord cmon seriously.

343 PLEASE do yourselves a favor and release more Xbox exclusives for the PC.
Virus201  +   743d ago
Why? So people on this site can scream, "HA HA, Where's your exclusives now Xbots".

So I can play them, that's why. Idgaf about your console war.
Razputin  +   743d ago
Wait the hell up, I am not even talking about consoles at all.

I am just saying Xbox games which is owned by Microsoft, to come over to PC which is about 80% Microsoft, not actual numbers, just saying not that many people exclusively use Linux and other OSs -- notice I said PC and not MAC so you Apple fags don't get your titties in a twister.

Xbox exclusives should definitely make their way to PC, I do not see why not. Remedy released Alan Wake on PC and it was successful, Dark Souls, and a few other games have been released on PC.

I do not care about the other consoles, I just want to see more games on PC. Not flaming at all, don't know why people are even disagreeing.

Not a good sign

um, why?
SIRHC13  +   743d ago
These are old games. They've made their money, now MS is just slapping that utter left and right trying to extract as much milk as possible.
Dlacy13g  +   743d ago
LOL. ...in other rumors pigs reportedly taking to the skies.
CalamityCB  +   743d ago
I don't understand why, MS already took Halo away from Apple back into 1999. Have no idea why they would put their game on a rival platform.
If any ports need doing it is porting Halo 3 to PC, it's about time more gamers get to experience this epic game. Hours of fragging, slaying and T-bagging have been spent on that game and it used to be heavily competitive. Bring life back into this poor soul MS, please.
thezeldadoth  +   743d ago
i'd love for them to release 1-3 on steam. so many PC players would be all over that
Software_Lover  +   743d ago
I would rather them release it on WP8 than iOS.
Software_Lover  +   743d ago
And if they are gonna release it for iOS, put it on the Windows 8 marketplace so I can play on a windows tablet.
Dunpeal  +   743d ago
cool, take me back to 2004
SpiralTear  +   743d ago
Does anyone really think bringing an FPS to iOS is really a good idea? I mean, why port a shooter to devices that have barely any tactile input? Shooters should be on devices that have buttons and directional inputs, not ones with only touch screens.

It's a total pain to play a first-person shooter on a system with no buttons. And forget that "buy a controller for your mobile device" crap. No one should have to pay an extra $30 for a controller adapter.

Just give me Halo 1,2,3, and Reach on PC. I've played them on Xbox already but would love to revisit them in the future without having to reinvest in some broke-ass piece of hardware.
Sizzon  +   743d ago
Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 are already on PC.

put halo 4 on pc

I hate looking at jaggies, and halo 3 and 4 and reach and odst are covered in them

bring them all to pc!

same with uncharted and last of us

the truth is, if those few games were on pc i'd NEVER buy a console, last gen or next gen or any gen!

curse you sony and ms with your tempting exclusives that make me buy your weak hardware I don't want!

I seriously don't understand why posts like these and my own are getting disagrees.

I don't care what game it is, whether its Halo XXX or Uncharted 15, I just want games on PC.

This whole console war, and X company has this exclusive and you don't is some gay 15 year old drone baby garbage.

Real gamers just want to play games, whatever it may be.
GraveLord  +   743d ago
On iOS? Way to devalue your brand.
Why would I buy an Xbox when I can play Halo on my phone? That's what people will think.
SIRHC13  +   743d ago
Halo 2 came out nine years ago. It's not like there's much more money to be made anyway.
Pillsbury1  +   743d ago
If anything it will introduce MORE people to the halo universe.
LOL_WUT  +   743d ago
Cool Halo + Mac = the best combo IMO ;)
ScepticTankAvenger  +   743d ago
If true, I will buy the next iPad. I swore off of Apple, but damn is this an exception.
