What's this? More
rumors about another Halo
? The latest Gamespot Rumor Control
has a source that claims the next Halo
title will be tactical, "a cross between Ghost Recon
and Gears of War
" and will be announced sometime this year (maybe tomorrow?). According to the source, the "darker, grittier" iteration is more akin to Neil Blomkamp's
shorts. Oh yeah, and that Master Chief guy is nowhere to be found.
In terms of gameplay, you can reportedly play as an entire squad (huh?) in the entire campaign, and there will be online co-op. The mention of Ghost Recon
is particularly interesting, as a former creative director from G.R.A.W.
developer Red Storm joined Bungie in August 2007. Gamespot seems confident with their source, and that would make for quite a big E3 announcement
