The Rumor Mill page of EGM's December issue may have just revealed what Peter Jackson's Halo project is all about.
A halo mmo could be kind of cool but would it be just another WoW clone
WoW was NOT Original
I'm guessing more like Huxley
Hopefully like PlanetSide w/o the Monthly Fee. We already have XBL to pay for.
seriosly you cant make a military based game into an mmo theres no enough depth... no skills to level up in... im not against it i just cant see it happening
"no skills to level up in... im not against it i just cant see it happening"
Why do you think this? There was a rich backstory and game-universe in Halo. You dont need a "magic" element to have a MMO.
I think this is great news. You can specialize in different gameplay types, perhaps operate an military-industrial economy, trade... who knows.
It doesnt take much imagination to see a great Halo MMO, with Peter Jackson involved.
Look for this game to be multiplatform. No way you cant develop an MMO game without realizing what PS3 can do.
P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
Maybe I'm being whooshed, but you do realize that Microsoft owns the rights to Halo right?
I never thought blatant fanboyism would get in the way of well known facts.
I see the Halo MMO FPS sticking to 360 despite Bungie going indie. NMS still has the dev wrapped tightly around its finger IMO.
Man this guy had smoke so much of that good ganja that he has lost it.
GG44 accomplishes nothing in his sh!tbagged posts, except making the rest of the Ps3 fans look worse.
Wow, a PC 360 MMO in Halo universe could rival WoW's popularity and sales.
That would be awesome...
Halo is the new Mario!
you better believe it, 4,000,000 copies sold in almost a month is no joke.
watch out Mario because Master Chief is coming for you with a rocket launcher.
yea mario with realy big guns
MS has so far relased 4 Halo games and you call it the new Mario.
Halo is just that good Kar33m!
Halo MMO will score 10! Because it -has- to be better then WoW!
I can agree with that wolf
I think he meant to say in it's popularity. Halo is the new mario.
Nope, I think he means in the number of games.
I mean both.No one can deny the chokehold Halo has over gamers right now.It's just like Mario in the 80's and early 90's.
I'm not in to Halo as much as others but Halo Wars is something I'm looking forward to. One can only hope that MS doesn't whore out halo as bad as Mario and instead of a new franchise just throw the name Halo on it.
We'll soon see if it helps M$ or kills Halo. real-talk
...I can't get into WoW. I don't like wizards or knights or whatever. I'm not a fantasy gamer. I like realistic (okay, Halo maybe not be real, but it's futuristic more than fantasy) and love those typyes of games.
So this would be an MMO theme that appeals to me. I hope it's official announced soon.
This could very well work out just as Halo could work out as a rts game which it was suppose to be originally but thats besides the point.
:/ daamit I was looking foward to that Peter Jackson Project but not no more I dont have the time or patience for nerdy ass mmorpgs. Give us another fps maybe a multiplayer only version or a rpg.
Did you miss that Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game? MMORPG?
Few MMO games arent RPGs. Instead of a world inhabited by AI and NPCs, you get other people of varying skill and development.
Halo MMORPG - How awesome that would be. Wow.
Damn, people have told you so many times, stop being a fanboy and stop using marketing slogans in your comments, it makes you look like a fanboy and you like a sad act tbh. MS owns everything Halo, Bungie no longer owns Halo.
One of my favorite MMO was a game published by sony on the PC called Planet Side... sadly the game was abandoned... but it had so much potential... if they can make this game like Planet Side... I will be playing it for years...
Do we need another run and gun MMO...i doubt it...wow dominates the fantasy MMO genre. But I could be wrong...anything halo is bound too be at least a million seller these days.
im sorry but a FPS "Halo" based MMO wow that must be a joke.
take away the halo and ull see FLoOP!!! (But not in the eyes of die hards)
want proof? Tablula Rasa , sound nice, but in reality mabey not.
Just stick to the HALO FPS's only.
Agree or disagree i dont care just fps mmo just bug me raw
The Halo MMO doesn't have to be an FPS.
If they are going to make this MMO it's probably going to be about the Forerunners and they're process of construction the Halo rings and other structures.
That is when I will join XBOX Gold live service :)
seriosly who trusts egm anymore,i hate those guys.
This would be pretty cool. My guess is you would be the marines or the Spartan 3 project. Even if you do not get to be a spartan the game would still be pretty cool. I hope this is true because to me at least this could be awesome.
Probably run at 420p and have serious framerate and aliasing issues LOL
Sorry but I don't see how this MMO could possibly be good. If its like Tabula Rasa it will suck, if its like Planet Side then no one will want to pay for it, if its like Huxley then the Xbox 360 will need a 2 gig RAM upgrade.
