In an interview to Videogamer.com, 343 Industries revealed that they have not ruled out the possibility of bringing Halo Reach and Halo 3: ODST to Xbox One in the future, and so many people “have asked about it that we are thinking about it”.
“With Halo 5 coming out we really wanted to focus on those Master Chief-centric games,” executive producer Dan Ayoub explained, discussing the reasons why the two games had been left out of Halo: The Master Chief Collection with us earlier this month. “That was part of it. Quite honestly, the other part of it was just disc space. We’re squeezing everything we can out of the available space for this thing.
“What I can tell you is probably the biggest question we get from people is, what about ODST and Reach. What I can say is it’s certainly not in our development timeline or planning right now [but] we’ve heard that question so much that it has seeped into our collective subconscious. I think enough people have asked about it that we are thinking about it.”
Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which is a remastered compilation of its classic Halo games in a unified UI is coming for Xbox One later this year. This will go on sale for $59.99 on Nov. 11. This collection will include Halo 1, Halo 2 in 1080p, Halo 3 and Halo 4, with 100 multiplayer maps running in high-definition 1080p video at 60 frames per second on dedicated servers.
There are two bonus things that come with this package. You will get access to beta of Halo 5: Guardians which will be available to play in December and also access to Halo Nightfall Digital series access.
