    SPOILER WARING FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT BEAT HALO 2.



    We all know it is coming. Dicuss plot, features, weapons, levels anything that has to do with Halo 3. Even though Bungie hasn't annouced it yet it will be fun to discuss.

    In Halo 2 we leave the Master Chief who is on a Forerunner Starship heading toward Earth. The pilot is the Prophet of Truth, the Covenant Hierarch. He is going to Earth to activate the other Halo rings and start the Great Journey.

    Let me ask you this, since Earth is the Ark, the site to activate all of the Halo rings, is it possible that humans might be the Forerunners? That would be a twist!

    If Halo 3 is ever produced, it would be a good title to launch the X-Box 2 with, in the same way Halo was launched with the original X-Box back in 2001.

    I assumed Earth is the Ark since when Commander Keyes asked 343 Guilty Spark where the Ark was it cut directly back to the Master Chief in the space above Earth.

    I can't say I know a whole lot about Halo, or games in general, but I do recall reading, or hearing, that there would not be another Halo...at least not on X-Box. Perhaps X-Box2 (or whatever), but I remember hearing it wouldn't be out on X-Box. *shrugs* Go figure. :p

    *walks away*

    I do remember Bungie stating "There will be nothing after Halo 2." However, after the ending Halo 2 presented us with, there needs to be *some* kind of resolution. There's too much for them to simply finish this with a book.

    The Covenant Civil war didn't leave us needing an ending...but the actions of the Prophet of Truth surely does, as does the Gravemind and Cortana.

    I believe there will be a Halo 3, and it will be a shipping title with the sucessor to the Xbox.

    Well maybe if they arn't going to make a halo 3 game...they would make a movie. Who knows there is a possibility if they done it good (and its for theaters) then they could make just as much if not more money than they could from a game. I doubt they would do that, but...ya never know.

    It'd be ludicrous for Halo 3 to be anything but a game. Jeez, I can't believe people are even suggesting such a thing.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Halo 3 is slated to be the Xbox 2 launch title. I'd hate it if it were true, seeing as I want to see the story's conclusion NOW, not 2-3 years from now. It's ridiculous; I mean, would it have been such a stretch to add a few final levels to game to wrap things up right here and now?

    I don't want to spoil many people with this one, but here goes.

    [hl=black]If you've beaten Halo 2 on legendary, you'll know what I'm talking about.

    "February 9th"[/hl]

    I don't know what it's supposed to signify, maybe Bungie has been up to more than we think. ;)

    Usually when they give day and month without the year it means the release will happen the next time the day comes-up, so 2005. I have this nagging feeling it will be levels you can download from XBox Live... and I don't like that feeling(cheap ploy to push the online service... I don't want to pay 50 ******* dollars just for Halo 2 multiplayer).

    It's either the announcement date for Halo 3 or the release date for Halo 3.

    I really hope it's not a "Come online and download a final level for Halo 2...all for another fifty bucks." That would blow.

    February 9th uh.....It may be the unveiling of Halo 3. I don't think they could just release it on February 9th without anyone knowing it.

    Or maybe the humans arn't forerunners just decendents of them....maybe that is what a reclaimer is, someone who possesses traits of forerunners?

    That's true...but how cool would it be if there was just an announcement on February 8th.

    "Tomorrow, Halo 3 will be available across the United States."

    It would send the majority of us gamers into anaphylactic shock.

    I think they said there wouldnt be another HALO, just to throw the masses a curve. If you have beaten HALO2, you know there HAS to be another one. Add to the fact the insane amount of money they pulled in, on the first day alone, and there will be another HALO. It is possible to use it for the X-Box2, I just hope they have it set up so it can play games from the first X-Box as well.

    So do you think you will be fighting alongside the Elites, Grunts, and Hunters now? Or do you think they may just drop out of the war for good?

    I think the war will be just about over, but a good portion of it will still be played.
