While 343 Industries have been very quiet about their progress on Halo 6, we do now have some information on upcoming support for older Halo games.
It's now been confirmed that a total of four previous Halo titles will be added to the Xbox One's ever-growing backward compatibility list. All of the four titles were originally launched on Xbox 360.
The four titles include Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. It's essentially the same list of games that were originally bundled in the Master Chief Collection. All four games will have a campaign and multiplayer support. Players will even be able to set up LAN games between the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
To make the news even sweeter, 343 Industries will be releasing all four games with all of their DLC. All previous downloadable content for the four titles will be made available for free, so long as players own the game, either in the digital or physical copy.
This will be a great opportunity for those haven't yet purchased the Master Chief Collection but still, have their older Halo titles gathering dust somewhere in their home.
In the future, 343 Industries plans to add backward compatibility support for some of the original Xbox Halo titles, including Halo 2. Players will even be able to setup a local LAN game on Halo 2 across all of the Xbox platforms, starting from the Xbox original, and leading all the way up to the Xbox One X.
