Halo: The Master Chief Collection is reportedly coming to Xbox One later this year.

Microsoft is planning to packed up the first four mainline Halo games in one huge high-definition remaster ahead of Halo 5: Guardian’s 2015 release…

Comprising Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is set to be an ode to the besuited wonder himself. Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach will apparently not be making the grade, with this collection focused on the exploits of Microsoft’s greatest mascot.

Saber Interactive, the team responsible for handling the Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition for Xbox 360, will be on development duties.

Last week 343 Industries’ general manager Bonnie Ross announced Halo 5: Guardian, teasing that that road to Halo will be “about a “journey,” rather than a destination – and that journey definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step.

343 Industries’ has since teased more to come, saying "In fact, I suspect most of you who read the Halo Bulletin regularly anticipate there's even more to come. Well you might be right, but we'll have significantly more to say about that at E3 and beyond. Suffice it to say, another shoe has yet to drop."

Microsoft has not commented officially on the matter but tech site Engadget UK has claimed that sources are indicating that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be revealed during E3 2014.

There’s no word yet on whether this indicates a possible PC port later down the line for the earlier titles in the Halo series but, for now at least, this is looking to be an Xbox One exclusive release.

Would you be tempted by an Xbox One pick up this remastered collection?

Is Microsoft resting on its laurels by repackaging past successes?

Let us know!

It's a little embarrassing, but I'm actually pretty excited for this. I really am a sucker for Halo. I might even buy an XB1.

I know UNSCleric will be buying this. He's a huge Halo fan. He even has a shrine to Master Chief.

I may not have a John-117 shrine but I could probably win in Halo universe knowledge...

Never was a fan of Halo Anniversary's Saber engine... They should have stuck to the Reach engine for the Halo CE campaign remake as well... The only issue was the physics engine apparently...

Yea, they only reskinned the game, it still had all that ancient tech and in my opinion that didn't worked quite well. Eveything looked HD weird :S

But what amazed me about Halo Anniversary was how good the AI seemed in 2011 - amazing for a game made between 1999-2000 and released in 2001...
