Halo Question

I just finished the campaign for ODST, finally, I know. Correct me if I'm wrong, but ODST takes place between 2 and 3? Reach is going to take place before Halo 1.

Is it true Reach will be the last Halo game?

I can't remember exactly what happened at the end of 3, though. Did Humanity beat the covenant and the flood, therefore ending the war?

at the end of 3 master chief activated the halo and blew up the planet and managed to jump a warthog into the ship almost dieing, but at the end of the credits they are having a funeral for spartan 117(master chief) because they thought he died, but he and cortana are floating in space(this part was if you completed legendary) and he goes to sleep in a cryo tube and thats what he wakes up in, in halo 1 and it goes back around

You forgot the part of the mysterious planet emerging in the background. At the end of the legendary campaign, I didn't get the sense that it was all just a big time loop as you elude to. I concluded that the planet that emerged may have been the homeworld of the Forerunners. Which would have been a far more interesting conclusion to me.

FYI, there is a book out now called HALO:The Fall of Reach. However, it appears that the game HALO:REACH and this book are not about the same thing, and in fact there are major story differences between the 2. Kind of odd, but whatever makes a good game.

ODST did not interest me, but Reach does.

Sure about that? I don't follow video games much anymore, but I remember reading something about a Q3 2010 release date.

reach is going to be another 'appeal to the masses to make as much money as possible'-type game imo. it's going to be the modern warfare 2 of the halo franchise. i'm still fucking pissed off that they axed H2 on XBL. that was easily my favorite game.

Wow, I didn't know that either. I loved H2 on XBL. Played some H3 when it first came out but never really got into it.

/\Ha. Yea, They axed Halo2 and the diehard fans stayed loggied into the server to keep playing. After 72 hours there were only 14 players left, and those guys quickly started dropping due to lagging out/etc. It's now done.

This is true, but limited. The full story is, Microsoft owns the IP to HALO. Bungie has just made a deal with Activision, but it is for the IP only. So lets say they create a game series named Mercy under activision. For the next 10 years whenever they work or release a Mercy product, they will be working with Activision. But Bungie is allowed to do other things during that time. So they could make 3 Mercy releases and then team back up with MS to make another HALO game. Then return to release another Mercy game. Bungie is a merc developer.

343 Industries is taking over the Halo franchise. All of Bungie's new intellectual property will be distributed by Activision.

343 is taking over developement, yes. But the IP still is owned by Microsoft. Good point of the other half though, looks like I didn't read that closely enough the first time. I got it a bit backwards.

die hard fans would say that halo2 sucked major balls. Halo1 Was the best halo out of all the halos. No other game came close to the level of fun produced from the first game. Also, diehard halo fans would have read the books and would are anxiously awaiting reach. Reach is going back to basics and is going to be one of the best halo games.

Which is why its called Beta. They are testing it out right now to see what people like and dont like. If Halo1 was online, which it was through an xbox mod, it would blow 2 and 3 away imo.
