Speaking at the unveiling of Rare's Viva Piñata today in New York, Microsoft Game Studios' General Manager Shane Kim made some interesting comments regarding the next Halo game.
First of all it could seem like the next Halo game, or the mythical Halo 3 as Kim called it, will not be coming to Xbox 360 before the end of 2006. Since Kim named the recently announced Viva Piñata as "most important game of 2006”, it does seem like Microsoft is expecting Bungie’s next project to be ready some time in 2007. Of course this is pure speculation, but we do agree with CVG that it is highly unlikely that Microsoft would rate “Halo 3” less important than Viva Piñata.
However the most interesting bit of info to come out of Shane Kim when questioned about “Halo 3” was that an announcement regarding the next Halo game was just around the corner.
"We'll be talking about anything we're doing in the Halo universe - whether that's Halo 3 as I call it or anything else - at the right time. That time will be soon."
And maybe even more interesting is the way he referred to the game, “anything we're doing in the Halo universe”, could this possibly mean that the next Halo will not be anything like Halo and Halo 2 at all? Could Bungie be working on some sort of squad-based shooter, or maybe an RTS game set in the Halo universe? Or could it be an RPG or even a MMO game?
The only thing certain is that we will know soon enough, most likely in May when E3 kicks off.

halo mmo now that will be nice

I just hope Halo3 is similar to Halo 2 with improved graphics (360) more levels, weapons, vehicles etc
Its microsofts biggest game and it would be stupid to ruin the 3rd installment by changing the type of game it is.
I've played Halo2 on xbox live to death and It's still the only game I can play a few hours a day everyday and still not get bored and theres hundreds of thousands of people like me (over the past year and a half) so hopefully they dont change the gameplay too much as bungie have a winning formula!
3 - yea
remoteXimpaler 03.16.2006 07:11
halo 2 is awesome
and i RAELLY hope they dont change much gameplay wise for halo 3
but if they are doing a side MMO or RPG it might be really cool
4 - Viva Piñata as "most important game of 2006”,
Unregistered - rob 03.16.2006 07:13
I dont think anybody bought a 360 for "Viva Piñata" and i dont know about you but GoW is alittle higher on my must have list ;)
5 - Halo 3
Unregistered - Fade To Black 03.16.2006 07:37
I hope the new game is totally different because imo the first 2 were very similar. I do think that both halo games were great but to release another one like it would just not cut it. Before the 360 had been released i prefered playing fps on the pc due to its superior performance over the past gen consols and of course the mouse and keyboard. There is nothin more addictive than firin up some Counter Strike Source on the PC, which i hope they one day port to the 360. Anyway I am sure either way, whatever type of game the new halo will be it will be something special because if the game is ready for the launch of the ps3 it could be the weapon of mass destruction for Microsoft considering we will already have a list of great games such a oblivion, graw, gears of war etc.

I mean why make viva pinata sooo big? tv shows merchandise games...why? theres got to be a catch something big behind all this paper mache cr@p, something secret but yet something thatll make everyone want viva pinata....i would lmfao if viva pinata turned out to be like Conker hehehehe imagine the possibilities
7 - "Halo 3" must be a FPS!
Spunkmeyer43 03.16.2006 07:44
Now don't get me wrong i think it is a great idea to make a RPG, MMO or deviate to some other platform within the Halo brand. It makes sense for microsoft/bungie and it does for fans.
The problem is, is that Halo is where it is because its a FPS that offers a rich story, brilliant gameplay and lush graphics. IF they produce a Halo game that is not in this sequence then they signing they're own death warrant...
Halo fans are by there very nature quite obsessive about the game and a move like that would have them burning their controllers in the streets! People want more, i my self loved the first Halo but hated the single player on Halo 2 was a huge dissapointment, and thats what they should be concentrating on. Personally i want to see the 360 push to knew graphical hights, i want clever AI but more than anything i want the story to make up for the slop that was halo 2, i dont simply want another game based on another Halo with all the same levels and character, (oh sorry they did include a gorila), i don't want to play as an elite, i don't want a haphazard story and i don't want to clock it in 8 hours! Personally i want to see a battle on earth some form of invasion, but thats just me!
A MMO is a great idea but for your own sake Bungie stick to what you know and make up for Halo 2! I did quite like the Squad comment!
Unregistered - theSeus 03.16.2006 07:57
All of you have got to face the facts that Halo 2 blew huge chunks compared to Halo1. The problem with Halo 2 is that it was nubified. There was very little depth to the gameplay. I sold the game after 6 months. The Halo universe has always pushed the FPS genre on the consoles and if they simply do a repeat of the last gen with all the unsual improvements it simply won't be next gen enough for me to want to pick it up. They need to have a story line but the only way to simulate the massive large scale battles that need to take place in the final showdown of the series is to go MMO. I'm glad that most of you don't develop games because all I hear is "I want the same old thing just redone". If that is all we ever got than the industry would stagnate. Halo will be the first game that I think will really push the next gen, and that applies to all the consoles.
asdf 03.16.2006 08:13
Well he WAS, after all, speaking at the Viva Pinata unveiling, do you think he would say that another game was more important? I doubt it, even if they had a big announcement about Halo 3 coming up, they wouldn't want it to be given away, nor would they want to overshadow the game they were announcing that day.
I think all we can REALLY take from this is that we'll be getting an announcement soon (and that whole "halo universe" bit is interesting...), but I'm not sure we can infer that Halo 3 won't be out until 2007. But then, maybe I'm just too optimistic.
asdf 03.16.2006 08:18
for the record, I semi-agree with #8: the only reason to buy Halo 2 was the online multiplayer. I got bored about 3 levels into the single player, but I still pull it out to play online on my 360 from time to time. I suppose another Halo FPS is coming to push the story forward and be all 360-pretty, but I'd be more interested in some other Halo-universe game
11 - #8 you are very wrong!
Spunkmeyer43 03.16.2006 08:22
There is a reason Halo 2 was the biggest selling game of all time! There is a reason Halo 3 is the most anticipated game of all time! If halo 2 had been a rpg or mmo it wouldn't of made all the money or sold all the xbox consoles! You comment you are glad none of these people produce games but it is the masses that must be targeted, i think its a great idea to produce a mmo or rpg or whatever but simply ending the FPS franchise will kill it!
Yes Halo2 was bad but now it should be put right, and that wont be done by abandoning the original concepts!
Unregistered - neutral 03.16.2006 08:34
I don't really care about the story line, Halo 3 needs to have state of the art graphics engine , with physics like half life 2or better. And particle effects like FEAR or even BLACK. That would be off da hezay!!!! Ya agree?

If you think about it a Halo squad game would make sence. In the last book they show that there are 4-5 spartans left whom all specialise at different things, speed, sniping, defence. there fore a squad base game where you can switch between the different spartans would be cool. also the co-op would be amazing.
also hope you can play as more types of creatures. I.E brutes or flood infection forms
JsonHenry 03.16.2006 10:55
They would make the bank on that. Charge for a monthly fee and there are tons of people who mistakingly will buy anything with the word "Halo" on it.

Lucid360 03.16.2006 11:36
I agree they will be making announcements about the movie... about Viva Pinata.. It could be some kind of viral campaign or coverup ... MS has done crazy stuff before. ilovebees?? LMAO... the crazy 360 tree campaign... yeah we are talking about MS here... so a rare game about a pinata being the most anticipated game of the year is (assuming Mike Tyson voice) "ludacris". But Rare is developing it so that is a little wierd, maybe Bungie and Rare have some kind of agreement. There are layers and layers of options. As for Forerunner I have not seen the article yet so i can't comment but if Bungie let Rare make a prequel game while Bungie was working on a true Halo 3 game that would be interesting since they could launch 2 Halo games close to the PS3 launch... With maybe the Rare game being the squad or MMO based many spartans thing. Similar to KOTOR for Star Wars. I am not a Halo freak who has like a timeline and the history all in my head, I played the games and i enjoyed them. But it would be an interesting idea to have 2 Halos... that is just a wild hair idea.

My theory is people play this game because it is the largest earning game to date. And by emersing themselves in this game they become part of all the hype. Ergo, they feel part of something huge and gain a sence of belonging to a group, or as I would put it, a psudo group.

Halo is a simple game that does not have extended replay value, and the idiots that play it on xbox live make it not worth anyone's time that is competent.

The speakers are of the highest quality and made out of solid maple. I have my Xbox 360 and HDTV reciever hooked up right now and will add a PS3 and Revolution upon their release. So. Don't brag.

Hey Mighty Boom....
I hate to brag but here I go... I have a dedicated theatre room with Greyhawk RS 101 inch screen, Infocus 7210 HI-Def projector, Denon 985S receiver, B&W 8 inch in ceilings for rear surrounds and B&W LCR 600's for the front staging plus a Revel b15a 2000 watt sub. The system including custom paint and lighting was $15K. My 360 hooked to the system is beyond anything you small mind can imagine and probably could not buy. In fact, you probably don't even own a 360 you Fanboy..........
By the way, there is no 75 inch plasma on the market for purchase. Stop looking at your dad's hi-fi/home theatre mags and trying to speak on a subject you know nothing about.
In closing, I'd like to apologize to all 360 fans for getting of subject but this guy has been getting on my nerves. He has Sony Fanboy written all over his post. Personally I like Halo as it has provided me with many hours of great game play. I can't wait to see what Halo 3 will be like for the 360.

Also to have HALO 3 as it's own world like as a MMORPG would be incredible. It would require alot of work to do but sooooo many possibilities.

? If the 360 had a mouse and keyboared whould you like it then? probably not because you are a pc,sony fanboy...or am i wrong

OH!!!! now that official news about the ps3 release has been released now all of a sudden all that info about halo 3 coming out is now coming out...AGAIN!!!!
And fans are so godman gullible it is not even funny they will fall all again into the bs rumors and speculation system again...i have been reading this board for some time now and everytime there was talk about halo 3 it turned out to be a denial and official at microsoft were saying that it would not come out at the same time as PS3 and this and that....but now apprently the news of ps3's relase is official so something "official" as to come out about halo 3 relase time.
I am so pissed off at game studios filling us with lies and BS ....bungie and blizzard come to mind on this topic ,they are working on stuff but they keep denying all the time on what they are working on.... WHY???? give me one godman good reason why?
Epic has released info that they are working on unreal and gears of war for the longest of time and they do release info and keep us informed at least...ubisoft releases info also on upcoming games even months in advance.
To me,keeping a project under wraps especially a sequel and to top that to say BS that " we ain't working on it" is like a kick in the nuts to their fans and is a total disrespect sign from the part of said company...the fans got in love with their product and make them tons of money but they still play catch and seek with fans....BS!!!!!
why don't they simply announce that they are working on it...everything is going well and a released date or timeframe will come soon....that way you build even more interest and drama to the release date....
those President of those companies should have their kahunas crushed to show them how it feels to be jerked around and how it feels to be played for fools....
most companies don't do that kind of those denial tactics but for those doing them especially bungie at the moment A big kick in the butt is all they deserve...
i am upset because those marketing tactics are ruining the industry...fan appreciations and fanbase...causing retailers headaches as they pass for liars when they have to say that the release day is not what was announced...
all of this and more is undermining the industry and companies keep whinning that their profit is down...well is those said companies would stop lying to their custoimers than maybe people would support them more....

HALO 3 WILL NOT BE ANYTHING BUT AN FPS
Anyone who thinks so is an idiot and shouldn't be allowed to play halo 3 the fps of the 360. By far most people who buy halo and the xbox are FPS junkies or just love to play the greatest online multiplayer in gaming history. Are you telling me the biggest selling point for the 360 right now is gonna be changed....why. Buyers dropping left aThe just jump to a different style. Worst Idea ever.
BUT, in the future after Halo 3 they very well could create something like that and I welcome it gladly. Also the continuation of halo 4 as an FPS. The plot in any game can be continued if you do it right. Games can go past 3 sequels, or is that one game with 2 sequels.
This guys a dreamer, and probably just trying to get publicity.
HALO WILL LIVE ON, I doubt an enormous staff of some of the best programmers would suddenly stop the Halo franchise. Also the 2007 thing is unlikely because Christmas Halo 3 and 360 is an explosive combination. I doubt they'll skip that just for another month. Most people are holding out for Halo 3 but that's a mistake cause I don't think there will be a price drop just a game in the bundle. My greatest hope for them would be to bundle Halo 3 and a Premium by Christmas. That would ignite an incredible XBL and 360 sales.
Enriching gaming forever, koodos Bungie

I can even throw into the mix my 2005 Corvette, 2005 Hummer H3 and my wife’s 2005 CLK. By the way, there all parked in my 3 car garage at the house I own. Sorry guys, I had to go there cuz again somebody decided to open there mouth about *#^*# they know nothing about. I hope I haven’t offended anyone with the braggin’, I just had to set these fools straight.
PAUL CERULA 03.17.2006 14:32
Typo repeat on my previous post, I only keep it real one time per post anymore is overkill.
To the guy above me you need to relax. Halo 3 will wait for a big bang just like most big games. Plus Halo 3 is at least 8 months away, jeese.

H3 will most likely come out around x-mas if not then not until 07! My man Paul knows what he is talking about in his post. Word to the wise don't believe everything you hear or read.

This just in from my insider source. In today's Weekly Whats-up-Date, Frankie will finally shed the light on where they are going with the next project. It will not be a formal announcement but will dispell the current rumours going around about the MMOFPS HALO. Check out the Bungie website later today for the real deal.

This is my last post. In response to the money issue, if you read my post carefully I never made mention about having money. I've made no reference to making more money than anyone else. Either way your mistake was to make an assumption. Because I listed material items, you associated those items with a person that has money. Your mistake dude. You don't know my bank account balance. It seems that everyone these days likes to make assumptions. We'd be better off making statements based on actual facts vs. ones assumptions. I have a good job and education that allows me to enjoy some things in life. That's all, nothing else.
Anyway, real money is the Billy Gates, Donald Trumps and hell, even the Oprah’s of world. So your statements about you know money is BS. If you knew money, you would've not wasted your time responding back to my post.

You know, I really don't talk about Halo 3 all that much simply because everybody puts you down and sais, "Is that all you Xbox fanboys can talk about is Halo this, Halo that?" I try to steer clear of any mention to halo because there are plenty of other great aspects about the Xbox and 360. However I have to admit, Halo CE is the main reason why I bought an Xbox in the first place (that coupled with my PS2 disk read error problem) and I instantly fell in love with the Halo Franchise. Whether you like it or not, Halo got where it is today for being a GREAT game with Halo 1 and Halo 2 both receiving "game of the year" awards the same year they debut and Halo 3 is the most anticipated game of next gen and those are the facts.
Do you really think Microsoft is going to let Sony and Ninty take control of the next holiday Season? F***ck no that would be suicide for MS and the only way to counter is the release of Halo 3 this November/December. It's pretty safe to say....expect Halo 3 this holiday season and get exited!

I believe #89. I believe him when he says he has no money. Those three cars, the mortgage, and the insurance and taxes on all of them leave you with very little money and A LOT of debt. A lot of crap=net worth of crap.

I live in southern cali, corona to be exact. And when you come thru, excuse me, IF YOU HAVE THE BALLS TO COME THRU, it'll be all good and this will be something that we will laugh about........AND to whoever called me a SONY FANBOY, you definitely come thru. You'll see nothing but a 360, two controllers and some games. No Fanboism here.....
So I hope someone is brave enough to back their shissh up, because I am.

Hmmmmmm i think your writing this from your bedroom at your parents, i think your about 35, wash rarely are grossly overweight, have a cardboard cut out of buffy that you sleep with, i believe the closest you have to a girl friend is your right hand and she is called Suzy Palm!

Hey and you'll have to get in quick, the hospitals are gonna be full of sony fan boys getting organs removed so they can afford the Over priced mythical PS3 with its user friendly Banana controllers!!!!
It’s so amusing! 2 months ago this site was plagued with irritating sony Fanboys telling us how great the PS3 and the blu ray is, and it being twice as powerful as the 360 and blah blah blah! All your gonna end up with is a console only slightly more powerful but wont be realised for some time because of the difficulty to write games for, a blu ray drive which will be pointless as the games wont even touch the capacity and if used as a player will burn out the laser, a controller shaped like an amusing vibrator! the 360 will have had over a year to establish itself, at least you have all those lush ingame videos to keep you goin!!! Oh no sorry they are cgi tech demos hahahaha keep living in denial you suckers!!!

No doubt there was a nondisclosure agreement that prevented him from talking about Halo 3 in a way that would allude to the fact that it existed, so he worded it in a way that didn't come out and say it was real. That's probably all there is to it.
