Halo VR Is Coming From Microsoft And 343 Industries?

Upload VR reports this for Windows 10 Mixed Reality. Interesting indeed but could just be one of those "experiences" type demos rather than a fully fledged game/remaster etc.

    There's just no way that I will be able to avoid taking the plunge here!

    I was a huge Bungie supporter long before they joined forces with Microsoft. As a poor college kid, Bungie was the only company that could pull me away from those early epic Blizzard Entertainment titles. I can't even estimate how many hours I spent playing Bungie's two amazing titles, Myth: The Fallen Lords and Myth II: Soulblighter.


    I bought my first XBox specifically to play Halo, and I wanted Halo specifically because it was Bungie. Halo was the first Bungie game I had played since the Myth days. Granted... I didn't follow the Halo/Xbox era beyond Halo 2; although I was a huge fan of the "Red vs Blue" series for the first 2 years.

    Now that Bungie is coming to VR... it doesn't really matter if it was with Halo or something entirely new/different. If I had the choice, I'd ask Bungie to bring Myth back for VR. It is a much darker and sadistic environment and story. Blood, guts, gore, and demons. That's what they should come to the table with up-front, just to let the world know wtf is up.

    But Halo will do just fine. As long as the immersion is done correctly... having the player exist within the Halo universe could be downright glorious.

    I have my Credit Card ready!

    This is my first time hearing about this news. Thanks for posting it, Shadow <3

    Bungie or 343?Are they made up of the same team just split? Bungie are very much invested in Destiny atm. Either way whether it's Bungie or 343 Bring it!

    Yeah a handful of Bungie talent stuck with 343 while the rest went rogue; similar to when TriForge left Blizzard Entertainment to form Arena.Net

    This stuff happens so much that I stopped trying to keep up with it. The exact names of those who stay, then leave, then re-unite fluctuates every few years :)
