IGN claimed earlier today that Microsoft will be showing footage from Halo 3 at E3 next month. Which, in terms of news, is kind of on par with saying they will also have some 360 demo cabinets at the show too.
However, as it is one of the most hotly anticipated games of 2007 (face it Halo fans, it?s not coming out this year) we thought we?d share the information with you, because we?re that kinda site.
According to the report on IGN: ?The next iteration in Bungie Studios' Halo series will appear at E3 2006 in video form at its Tuesday, May 9 news conference?.The video is allegedly two minutes long, although its contents weren't divulged. We're guessing a wild breathtaking battle on Earth. Knowing Microsoft, the publisher will want to show all real, in-game engine footage to counter Sony's fantastical CG videos from E3 2005.
Microsoft has infamously reiterated that Halo 3 will be ready when Bungie is finished.?
SPOnG has been granted a rare audience with Microsoft top brass at E3, so we will, of course, be firing a few Halo-related questions their way. Microsoft Game Studio?s General Manager Shane Kim has said recently that there is to be a significant Halo 3 announcement at E3. We?ll be the first to let you know what it is.
