Microsoft is Going to Remaster Halo: Combat Evolved Again and is Considering a PS5 Release, Says New Report

Microsoft is reportedly in the early stages of developing another remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved and is considering releasing it on PlayStation 5.

That’s according to Tom Warren at The Verge, who received the website’s new ‘Notepad’ newsletter (subscription required, but the first 30 days are free).

The report outlines other details surrounding the upcoming Xbox Games Showcase, including the fact that Microsoft is going to port other games under “Project Latitude”. However, according to Warren, Fable, Gears 6 and South of Midnight are currently not planned for porting. The new Doom game, which will be called Doom: The Dark Ages will be.

Halo: Combat Evolved has already been remastered once before as part of the Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. The remaster included the game being remade with 343 Industries’ in-house game engine and would include achievements, Terminals, and Skulls. The game was originally released in November 2011 and re-released as part of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

  1. Microsoft should have DICE remake Halo in Frostbite engine all 3 original games and port it to PlayStation. I heard they have Saber remaking Gears so if they have Saber remake those 3 games too it would be straight fire porting that over on PlayStation too and then bring Cliff back for a soft reboot of Gears and it’s a wrap.
