Is it possible that PC gamers could also get Halo: CE Anniversary? It seems at least plausible that it could be in the cards down the road if Saber Interactive CEO Matthew Karch is correct. Saber’s engine (which is called Saber3D) does apparently run on the PC platform as well as the Xbox 360.
According to Karch, while he admits that currently Microsoft’s 343 studio has no plans for a PC version of Halo: CE Anniversary that he knows of, he would not be surprised if it was released for the PC platform down the road.
Some have already complained that they see the release of Halo: CE Anniversary (which has been re-rendered in HD using the Saber3D engine while still running Bungie’s game logic underneath) as nothing more than Microsoft cashing in on Halo once again. Despite the $40 retail price for the game, some are not seeing the value in revisiting the first Halo title.
The real question is whether or not we will see the PC version. We suspect that Halo fans will buy it in the end, as it presents an experience that you didn’t get from Halo on the original Xbox.
