Halo The Master Chief Collection Engine isn’t Similar to Halo 5 Engine

By   /   Jul 10, 2014

Halo fans all over the globe are waiting eagerly for Halo The Master Chief Collection, however there is still time in the release of the collection, and so you will have to suffice with any, and everything that 343 Industries is letting loose about it or Halo 5.

It was previously unclear whether the engine being used to develop Halo The Master Chief Collection was similar to the one being used for Halo 5. What we have for you is confirmation that is not the case.

The franchise development director for the Halo series at 343 Industries, Frank O’Connor jumped into a thread regarding the games over NeoGAF where someone had asked if the new engine was similar to the one used for Halo 5.

O’Connor revealed that wasn’t technically true because ‘it’s a blend of legacy and some proprietary code. H5 is on a different schedule and couldn’t be branched for this.’

Other than this, he also revealed that Halo The Master Chief Collection was not going to get an Xbox 360 version in the future. This comes as opposed to a listing for the same that appeared at Amazon Canada recently:

“Error. There’s no 360 version that doesn’t involve lots of old boxes and some imagination. Played a mid-polish version of one of the remake maps yesterday. Dat water. Dem rocks. Dat sky. Really coming along.”

In the end, Halo The Master Chief Collection is going to be released to Xbox One in the United States on November 11, 2014 and in the United Kingdom on November 14, 2014.
