The Zapper!: "Wait, you were serious?"
Posted: Wednesday September 24th, 2008 by

Earlier this month Microsoft announced that they would be closing Ensemble Studios, the developer responsible for Halo Wars and Age of Empires. Apparently Ensemble had also been working on an MMO title based within the Halo IP. Though the project was likely cancelled "mid" to "late" last year, some of us (that means me) only heard about it via the Ensemble closure.

Okay yeah, so I'm a bit late to the damn game. I'm certain I should have heard about a potential Halo MMO. But I probably was doing something more important like playing Rock Band or shaving hampsters. I mean I can see merit to the idea of bringing Halo into the MMO space. And Jeff knows we need some more sci-fi in the arena. But, [insert some outlandish claim of purist, cross-genre phonia seemingly validated by the witty application of a complex metaphor].

Alright, so I'm not really even endeavoring to make a point here. As long as it's a good game I don't care about games jumping genres. Some of my favorite games are genre jumpers.


Halo MMO, your thoughts?
