Ahead of next month’s release of the much-anticipated Halo: Master Chief Collection, Microsoft announced that they will be airing a documentary this Friday that will chronicle the development process of remaking the collection’s version of Halo 2.
First released a decade ago, and actually celebrates its 10th anniversary on the 9th of next month, for the original Xbox, Halo 2 helped to solidify the Halo series as a major competitor in the crowded world of First-Person Shooters and is considered by many to be among the best games in the series. The updated version, which will launch as part of the Master Chief collection, is getting the full HD treatment from the fine folks over at 343 Industries, the team that took over the franchise when Bungie, Halo’s original creators, jumped ship to work on projects of their own, such as the recently released MMO Shooter, Destiny. With any luck, 343 will be able to not only recreate the look and feel of the classic original, but also update it so that a new generation can experience the early days of one of Microsoft’s biggest franchises.
The documentary will air this Friday, October 31st, on Xbox Live and Twitch. You can also check it out on the Halo Channel next month starting on November 11th.
