Halo 4 Returning to Franchise Roots

July 5, 2011, By Christian Davis

In an interview with MVC UK Microsoft UK’s Xbox entertainment director Stephen McGill shed some light on the upcoming Halo 4 title.

“One of the key things with Halo 4 is going back to what made it amazing for people playing the first Halo,” McGill told MCV recently, giving one of the few hints as to the nature of the new game since its reveal at E3.

McGill stated that the re-release of Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 4 will be a great introduction to the series  for players that were too young to have experienced  of the original Halo.

“The people who are 18 years old now were only eight when Halo appeared. They probably didn’t play it. That’s the opportunity the Anniversary pack and then Halo 4 have,” he said.

Being that the original Halo put the original Xbox on the map, trying to recreate that experience for new fans to the franchise makes sense and will also give them a history on the franchise and discover why it is so successful today.
