Engadget reports that the “Master Chief Collection” will be released ahead of the upcoming Halo 5.
Hot on the tail of yesterday’s Halo 5 announcement, it looks like Master Chief fans are in for some more good news, with Engadget reporting that the original four main-series Halo titles will be compiled into a HD collection for the Xbox One.
“We’ve learned that Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4 are being collected in a Master Chief-focused HD remaster coming from Microsoft,” claims Engadget. The HD collection should arrive sometime before the release of Halo 5, and will skip over the non-Master Chief-centric titles: ODST and Reach.
The game’s developer is unknown at this point, but considering that Saber Interactive handled Combat Evolved Anniversary – the Halo 1 remastered edition for Xbox 360 – and is also working on an unannounced Xbox One project, the team is a likely suspect.
We’ve reached out to Microsoft for an official confirmation.
