Halo Ports Update

Microsoft Game Studios Announces the Development of "Halo: Combat Evolved" for the PC and Mac is a press release with the long-awaited official update on the status of the PC and Macintosh ports of Halo, Bungie's science fiction shooter. Turns out the game is going from Xbox to Gearbox, as Gearbox Software is doing the PC port, which is due Summer 2003. The Mac port is being developed by Westlake Interactive, and is also due sometime in 2003. A skeptic might think some hints at this had previously been revealed to the folks at MacGamer, where they have instantaneously posted a two page article called Halo: I Told You So graciously providing a little face-rubbing to those who said such a port would never come. The article has quotes from Westlake Interactive that indicate that they are shooting for a simultaneous release with the PC version.

I believe the press release is adequate, reasonable proof that they intend to bring Halo to the Mac and PC.

Corey. Do you seriously believe that a press release stating "intent" is justification of your neenerisms? I don't think so. If you have been around technology and the free market for more than a few months, you know that anything can happen. You're either sacrificing your credibility at the altar of Microsoft/Bungie, or you are just very green.

Here let me make your day. Corey, over a year from now, I "intend" to give you one million dollars. There now let me see your celebration dance!
