The original tech video was posted over a year ago with 100k views and they have this in the description:

"Project-Contingency was created under Microsoft's "Game Content Usage Rules" using assets from Halo. It is not endorsed by Microsoft and does not reflect the views or opinions of Microsoft or anyone officially involved in producing or managing Halo. As such, it does not contribute to the official narrative of the fictional universe."

So assuming this is true the project will be fine, Command & Conquer Renegede X is a remake of the original MP game and EA had no issues with them doing this as long as they didn't make money which is what these guys are doing too.

There is no way MS will (or should ( allow some random company to profiteer off of their most iconic franchise. This game will never exist, and shouldn't. It would be like someone making tlou and uncharted using assets from it, why would Sony allow that?

The devs and publishers put thousands and thousands of man hours and millions of dollars into these franchises, there is no reason this is ok.

They're not making money, you didn't read the very end of my comment.

"Project Contingency is a free to play project, being developed by a group of volunteers. It is a free to play game, with absolutely no money being involved with it. We currently are not accepting donations."

Very interested in this. Microsoft should give them their permission on this with out delay!

This is awesome, woww I'm really impressed with those gun models! They look amazing.

It would be so damn awesome if MS allowed them to publish on the xbox one as an indie game! I would legitimately buy it.

That would require them to have a bit of funding for the port.

They aren't allowed to make any money off this title. Full free to play, the second they start making money is when MS steps in.
