Microsoft confirms Halo 'Bootcamp' following ratings leak

New Halo project in the works, tipped for PC

Image

Microsoft has confirmed the existence of a Halo-related project titled 'Bootcamp', which surfaced recently via Korean Ratings.


The Microsoft-filed Korean listing, spotted by Game Front, names 'Bootcamp' as a PC online action game, with mention of Halo 3 in the description.


Little else can be gleaned from the Google-translation, but a Microsoft rep was surprisingly willing to confirm the prematurely outed project with an albeit vague statement.

"What's Bootcamp? It is not related to our Xbox One efforts, or the Reclaimer Saga, but rather a project we're very enthusiastic about and will have more to say about in the near future," said the rep.

The 'Reclaimer Saga' refers to the second Halo trilogy, which is expected to continue on the next-gen Xbox One console.

A PC port of Halo 3 would seem unlikely at this point - a full six years after it originally hit Xbox 360 - unless it were some sort of experimental free-to-play multiplayer venture (think Quake Live). The project may also be related to a Halo novel by Reed Ruiz titled Halo: Fall of Reach: Boot Camp, but nothing is confirmed.

Perhaps we'll hear more on this at E3 next month.

You should probably factor that into the nature, type and scale of thing it’s going to be. I will say this though, and only this: it’s cool and something I have always wanted to do.

PC? Hmm, that cant be right. Maybe it will be a 'killer app' for the newly speculated Windows Suck. (i dislike the new windows 8 ui)
Otherwise, bring it! Cant wait...lol
The originals by Bungie were always better.

Its supposed to be a third person shooter so I hope its not some casual crap, perhaps when you aim it will go into first person aiming mode such as when you use iron-sights in some games. We will probably know more come E3 (June 11-13th).


Some have speculated that it could be an MMO, others say it could be a F2P (free to play) game. Even if its not what we all wanted (Halo 3 PC) it is a step in the right direction on Microsoft's part.

It's a little bit different from the way we hoped to play halo, but it's still what we wanted. Halo for windows.

I disagree, its a step in the right direction. It may not be FPS but it is MS putting some form of Halo back on the PC and with Halo 4 not being as popular as they wanted we might be getting more in the future.

As of now we still do not know if Halo Bootcamp and Halo: Spartan Assault are the same game. Last, I would love a true Halo Wars RTS on the PC.
