Halo: Reach and Halo 3: ODST Xbox One Ports Could Happen in Future
343 Industries has stated that it has received quite a number of requests to bring over Halo: Reach and Halo 3: ODST over to the Xbox One. As things stand, the developer has started thinking over the matter and while no official confirmation was given, the possibility to meet expectations of fans is always there.
Speaking with VideoGamer, the studio’s executive producer Dan Ayoub explained why the above mentioned games were not included in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
“With Halo 5 coming out we really wanted to focus on those Master Chief-centric games. That was part of it. Quite honestly, the other part of it was just disc space. We’re squeezing everything we can out of the available space for this thing.”
Ayoub made it clear that 343 Industries is currently not planning on porting either game to the Xbox One since the studio has other projects to deal with. However, seeing that enough people have asked for it, they might do so in the future.
“What I can tell you is probably the biggest question we get from people is, what about ODST and Reach,” he added, “What I can say is it’s certainly not in our development timeline or planning right now [but] we’ve heard that question so much that it has seeped into our collective subconscious. I think enough people have asked about it that we are thinking about it.”
Halo: The Master Chief Collection includes four games; Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4. The package is set for release on Xbox One on November 11 in North America and November 14 in Europe.
