If 343 wants Halo 5 to be the next big eSports title they need to make Halo 5 competitive out of the box. According to Frank O’Connor on the Giant Bomb E3 panel, 343 aims to take Halo 5 back to its roots and make the game more competitive.
Simply having a game that can be competitive isn’t enough though. For a game to be a successful eSports title it must also have a large spectator following that may not be interested in competing. What this means is that the game should be competitive without needing to make adjustments to the movement speed, power up placement, starting weapons, etc.
Halo 2 was released on November 9th, 2004. On November 11th 2014, celebrating 10 years of Halo 2, Halo Master Chief Collection will be released for the Xbox One. Halo Master Chief Collection will contain Halo 1, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4, each boasting 1080p resolution, running at 60 frames per second and multiplayer in all its original form to relive the glory days.
Rumours have been circulating for months about Halo 2 Anniversary. For me and many other Halo fans, this is a dream come true. The rumours weren’t only true, they’re better than we could have imagined!
