AOE Creators Making Halo RTS

Well gentlemen, Halo is now moving on to become an RTS. Very interesting to say the least.

ARTICLE : http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3154046

I really like Age of Empires, but I don't think that style of RTS will work in the Halo universe. This game certainly has awesome potential (playing space battles with captain keyes on your side ftw), but it also could be another run-of-the-mill RTS, which is more likely.

Any one have any thoughts?

PS. Halo was originally planned to be an RTS so they are in no way stealing from Halogen, the fan made RTS that was shut down.

i think this game would be cool if it was more squad based combat and you command the spartan squad because RTS's for consoles usually suck ass

You guys realize Bungie origenelly (****ing sp?) made Halo as an RTS, but it developed into a FPS.

It looks pretty cool, but they're gonna either


A. Do it right, and it's gonna be a huge hit.... or
B. Theyre gonna mess it up, and it's gonna fail horribly.


It's a best or worst-case scenario, IMHO.

with all the halo fan boys even if the game does completely suck it will be the "greatest game ever, besides halo 1 and 2 and eventually 3".

Is it for the PC or 360? IMO RTS games are abysmal on anything other than a mouse and keyboard.

RTS's for consoles dont suck anymore. BFME2 is doing quite good on 360. Dont think that Halo 3 is being replaced by this game. Halo 3 is still coming out in FPS, the usual. This is just another little add on.

I am pretty sure I pointed that out in your thread.

I am also pretty sure I made mine before yours, which i also pointed out in your thread, might want to read that... not to start flaming or anything.

If a mod would like to merge the two threads, I dont care who gets credit for creating it. If not, then whatever.



I also agree that RTS need to be on the PC. Maybe im old school, but i have never played a good console RTS.
