Bungie Wanted To Make Halo 4 Starring Master Chief Instead Of Reach
Instead of making Halo: Reach, the prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved, Bungie said that they wanted to make Halo 4.
Brian Jarrad of Bungie said to MTV, “even before the idea to build a game based around Reach came about, a lot of other concepts were explored, up to and including a proper Halo 4, where Master Chief was going to wake up from cryo-sleep and we were going to tell that story.
[But] it just wasn’t as interesting to the team to just pick up where that left off and all the baggage that came with it.”
Halo: Reach is currently scheduled for a September 14 2010 release only on the Xbox 360.
