Halo 3 Confirmed for Fall 2007 42

The folks at Bungie share the news, via their weekly update, that Halo 3 will be coming out this fall. Not surprising, but still good to hear. The game's marketing campaign will soon be kicking into gear, and the site offers the first 'iconic' image they'll be using on billboards and bus stops. The update also includes a few words on the Crackdown/Beta offering (sometimes later this spring), and an update on where they are with Halo itself.

    too bad they never say anything about the release date anywhere in there
    The release dates are on the teaser/poster images. Click any of 'em, or check out the one Frankie edited at the bottom of the page.

    ...when I see it. I seem to remember that Halo 2 was finally released almost a year after its initial release date. So using that time table, Halo 3 should be out sometime in the fall of 2008.

    The snow map was Assault on the Control Room. Also featured a shortcut where you could skip a fair bit of the level. Actually, two shortcuts since you could get an early Banshee with some well-positioned rockets.

    There were some quality maps in Halo 2 as well, but it didn't come together as nicely for me. Reminds me, slightly, of how Quake 2 felt compared to the original.

    Still, I played H2 through a couple of times and have had many nights spent on multiplayer with friends - absolute bargain when you consider how much game time I've had out of it.
