The rumored HD Xbox 360 remake of the original Halo: Combat Evolved will be released on November 15, 10 years after the Xbox classic debuted, Joystiq reports. Series creator Bungie wouldn't be involved. Microsoft hasn't confirmed, though we've asked.
Why is everyone seeing this as such a negative thing? If it's simply an HD reskinning of the original game, I don't see why Bungie would need to be involved. Same engine + prettier graphics seems fine to me, especially if they add live multiplayer! I would LOVE to get some 8 on 8 matches on XBL in. The original Halo raised the bar of console shooters, and is still fun as hell to play with friends (I do it a couple times a year). Here's hoping this comes out!
