Halo 2 2004

XboxAs reported on BungieNet, Halo 2 will definitely not be released in 2003. Despite cries of anguish from Bungie fans everywhere, Matt Soell offers the following consolations:

Bungie will continue to meter out Halo goodness over then next year.
Halo for the Mac and PC will be coming out in 2003 with some extras.
There will be a Halo 2 taste at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in May.

Speaking of E3, Microsoft is rumored to reveal more details about the Xbox 2 at the show. Wouldn't it be ironic if Halo 2 came bundled with the Xbox 2?

Update: Matt has added this unequivocal statement, "No. I'm already seeing this rumor tossed around on other sites as fact. Bollocks. Halo 2 is an Xbox game."

Halo 2 will be the best game for XboX. XboX 2 will not come out till 2006.Halo 2 will have many new details but we cannot overlook halo 1. it was a very good game and it was good because it was simple!

Halo is no competition the best game ever it has been a couple years, and it still amazes me. I hope and I am expecting Halo 2 to give me the same replayability amount, does Halo 2 focus more on multiplayer, and live. But still have a great single, and co-op missions.Halo 2 is going to make the Xbox the best console with no competiton.

Halo 2's bumb mapping and new features is going to make it one on the best games ever made. Halo was, and still is great, but this WILL be better. I am expecting a lot out of Bungie in this game, and I know they won't let me down. The fact that you'll be on Earth fighting to save the human race is cool.

Posted by: Master Chief on May 29, 2003 11:20 AM

Halo 2 will, without a doubt be the best game for x box. Bumb mapping for the game will make it that much better. The long wait is going to be well worth it.

Posted by: NOT TO BE SAID on September 16, 2003 1:14 PM

halo 2 should have been out already, whats taking bungie so long.

Posted by: Chris on September 16, 2003 3:33 PM

Chris, are you even aware of the amount of work that goes into making a videogame? Esp. one where you are doing a sequel to a MEGABLOCKBUSTER hit like Halo? Trust me, Bungie is hard at work trying to make Halo 2 a spectacular game.

It'll get done when it gets done, and right now that will occur in 2004. No one knows exactly when, though many folks are thinking early 2004. We can all hope at least.

Posted by: Miguel on September 17, 2003 1:14 AM

someone tell me when is it gona be relesed i no its a kick ass game but when will it b relesed!

Posted by: rico on September 19, 2003 8:42 AM

P.S. just a suggestion

Posted by: arthur on September 23, 2003 7:57 PM

yo who ever disses halo 2 deals with me beacause halo one was the tightest game in the world so in o halo 2 is gonna be off the hook i cant wait ill i beat my boys ass in that game so peace

Posted by: brian on October 8, 2003 11:56 AM

I agree with brian. who ever says halo or halo 2 is stupid should just fall down and die. especially yoggy. me and all my friends have the game and we think it is the best. This game is worth the wait.

Posted by: Ryan on October 9, 2003 7:39 PM

Halo is the best game in the world. The only reason why someone would think it sucked is if they have the crappiest hand eye coordination or has no thumbs. This game is extra cool because you can lead your men to victory and do solo missions.
P.S. yoggy, everyone hates you. Go cuddle with your boyfriend.

joe you're right

Posted by: www on October 26, 2003 11:07 PM

Did any of u see the commercial on NBC last night?
It was talking about xbox live and then showed a picture of Master Chief in his new Halo 2 armor, and at the end of the commercial it said
"Everyone will know November, 15" did anyone see that? I don't know what it means, but i am very anxious to see. Halo rox!!

Posted by: §nIpÉr on November 10, 2003 2:34 PM

That was a faked commercial and the stupid rumor about Nov 15 is just that... a stupid rumor.

Please, lets not spread lies. It sucks.

Posted by: Miguel on November 10, 2003 3:51 PM

These rumors are spreading fast, at first when i saw the rumors i believed it, then again im just one of several million who are just very anxious to get their hands on this long awaited game. This rumon can be true, it can be all a marketing ploy to get this hype bigger, either way ill be sure to check stores (asking managers i know)on the game. I just hope this rumor turns out true.

Posted by: HaloFan on November 14, 2003 2:18 AM

Halo 2, is going to be released on April 2nd 2003.

Posted by: yu yang on December 13, 2003 8:28 PM

Posted by: who knows on December 21, 2003 3:22 PM

I heard it was delayed again, they say it's coming out in June. I know, it sucks, really bad.

Posted by: Bob Smith on December 23, 2003 7:45 PM

I think halo is really awsome and if anyone wants to say they suck way more than me, just email to

Posted by: Bob Smith on December 23, 2003 7:47 PM

K, guyz.....for you halo fans you may not want to here this because this is hard for me to say. As for halo was postponed and delayed again and won't be coming out until around November in 2004 Q4. If you don't believe me, then as for proof go check out the xbox site and click halo 2. Underneath it it will have breakin news and announcement. It will say it has been delayed once again until Q4 or longer. What makes this so bad, they promised the release around april and now its been delayed even longer. Also, developers are making desicions whether halo 2 will be on xbox or xbox2 which should be coming sometime in 2005. And if desicions are made to put halo 2 on the next generatuion system on xbox 2, halo 2 could be as far as delayed again until late 2005 and/or 2006. =9,..... .... ..............SHIIIIITTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!! OH WELLLLL............And again to the addition, I really dont have the time to keep freakin buying xbox 2 for another $300 cause be quite honest, I had a hard time getting xbox! If you have any questions purtaining to halo 2 or xbox 2 or PS3 pics or info or something, be sure to email me at

Posted by: BB on December 30, 2003 11:11 PM

K guyz, got new bad became ultra true that its release of halo 2 will not be till Late november 2004. It's not a rumor and also for u guyz who want to know why halo 2 is going to be delayed, well I just got word from xbox support team that its being delayed again because of its technical issues with the buggy xbox live interface and bitrate issues. They also say that they are having problems with there shadowing paremeter throughout the game due to system meltdown at bungie. Word has also been said that the developer of the game was to spift up the graphics a little bit more and add more things to the game. Anyways, not that thats dissapointing, I guess we can do nothing but await the waiting pain ahead of us. Close yet so far away, we definetly have some waiting to do eveyone. but not to worry, the subsitute for halo can be with fable and half-life coming to xbox around march. Not to mention the PC hit Mafia coming January 27 2004. Peace Out everyone and again if any questions regarding games or something, dont hesitate to email me. Peace!!!!!!!

Posted by: BB on December 30, 2003 11:31 PM

Its comin out in April 25 2004

Posted by: poop on January 2, 2004 11:44 PM

Dudez And Dudettes... Halo 2 Will Be Coming Out Feb sometime.. it will be 2 player against eachother, not vo-op and it will be live. enjoy the game. i will

Posted by: Squirrly on January 6, 2004 1:32 AM

I should know better and not lend credence to anything said here, but I'd like to appeal to all of you to take anything you hear with a grain of salt. The game will be out ONLY when Bungie announces officially when it will be out. Anything other than that is total and utter bullshit.

- M

Posted by: Miguel on January 6, 2004 12:53 PM

its coming out april 1st I hope

Posted by: bob on January 19, 2004 3:08 PM

yo, the predicted and utterly wrong dates r:feb,march,april,june and november. I think that it is bullshit that people want the game to come out today, when you should rather wait till halo2 will be the best that it can be. Now me myself being a HUGE halo fan, wants the game to come out asap, but know that i should wait until the game is as great as possible. Even that site is probaly bullshitting you about the date. When the bungie site announces the offical date, then that's when you should pay attention, expect and update anywhere from Feb.-Dec. Or if it comes out anywhere in between.

Posted by: Taleous76 on January 20, 2004 7:55 PM

Also, don't listen to the fucking videogame stores, they don't know what they're talking about even if they got it from their officals. Because Bungie has never announced a offical release date yet. So that's the time they want Halo 2 to come out, yet they don't know how long it takes to make a game. I made rpgs with a program, and that takes forever, so it must take a hell of a lot longer because it's all scripts, like designing graphics, sounds, story, AI and misc.

Posted by: Taleous76 on January 20, 2004 7:59 PM

i mean that the videogame stores that they want the videogame to come out and they don't know how long it takes

Posted by: Taleous76 on January 20, 2004 8:01 PM

Halo 2 will be off the hook,so when it comes out you'll need to get to the store fast because if you don't it will be sold out and i now that as soon as i see it out i will be at that fucking store in 2 minutes ,so get it when you can

Posted by: marcus on January 22, 2004 4:41 PM

yea, i think anyone who wants halo 2 and can't wait a couple of months(if you're lucky) to get the game, you should go out and reserve it somehow. At like video game stores like gamestop or EB games, not Toys r' us.

Posted by: Taleous76 on January 24, 2004 4:43 PM

Halo 2 is coming out November 2004. It was in Electronic Gaming Monthly.

Posted by: BriSter on January 25, 2004 1:55 PM

As a matter of fact the release date for Halo 2 approximetly between april 3rd and march 18th. Some have said June first is the official day. That is all possible

Posted by: Matt Krsulic on January 29, 2004 7:19 PM

Matt Krsulic's comment is a good one to close this thread on. As I've said countless of times, NO ONE knows the exact ship date yet of Halo 2. Bungie will announce the ship date on their OWN site, If you think a store or some website knows the date, you're wrong and that store/website is wrong as well.

Be well, everyone.
