Halo 2: Anniversary is "getting the special sauce" says Bonnie Ross

Gamereactor caught up with 343 Industries studio head Bonnie Ross at the Best of Xbox event at E3 to specifically discuss the upcoming Master Chief Collection on Xbox One. We discussed how the matchmaking would work, why Halo 2 was "getting the special sauce" and heard how much better Halo 4 looks on Xbox One. (Bonnie Ross, E3, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo 5: Guardians, Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo: Combat Evolved, Xbox One)

Special=secret sauce!

I can't believe she actually said 'special sauce!' It must be part of the Microsoft staff manual "Make sure you put special sauce into everything you do." ;)

IMO they should've given at least 1,2 and 3, the special treatment

1 already has the special treatment lol its the anniversary version and 3 and 4 have upgraded resolution/framerate

343 put a lot of work into halo2 you should watch a video of the gane or side by side comparisons with the original game.it looks really great. After seeing it i can only imagine how good halo5 will look. I believe 343i and BT will raise the bar very high when it comes to next gen graphics. halo5 is going to be a visual treat.

So Halo 2 will have upgraded graphics/textures etc but won't be able to hit 60 fps because of that? Ugh.

What are you talking about?
christocolus  +   482d ago
Just ignore it and walk away quietly.

"Later Ross said: "Everything's going to be 1080p and 60 frames, with the exception of - we're still working on the campaign for Halo 2 for 1080p."

Might not be reading into it correctly so I'm happy to hear your take.
Krosis  +   482d ago
Halo 5 (best engine yet in the series) will run at 60fps/1080p...I am sure they will be able to get Halo 2 (runs on the same engine Halo CE: Anniversary does) at the same rate. After all, Halo CE will.
Elit3Nick  +   482d ago
halo CE and halo 2 anniversary both run on their same respective engines that the originals ran on, they use a new graphics engine though. But the 6 remastered halo 2 maps run on a brand new engine(I have the feeling it's a more basic version of the halo 5 engine)

Cool, that's what I'm hoping for. Not sure why I got all the disagrees above (not that I care, just funny). I cannot wait for this to release.

I was probably just reading into her one quote too much (I quoted it above). I was just looking for clarification or more info. I'm guessing you're right. It was just a strange (or strangely worded) comment from her.
Benchm4rk  +   482d ago
Im sure 60fps is there target more so than 1080p. If they cant get 60fps in 1080p then they will probably drop down to 900p or something. If they cant manage to hit 1080p 60fps for Halo 2 than I wouldnt expect them to hit it with Halo 5 either. Would be a bit of a blow to MS if they cant hit 1080p 60fps with there biggest franchise.

Nothing wrong with remastering old games, it is the remastering of games that came out recently that is annoying
