Microsoft’s told VG247 that Kinect support for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is only “additive,” but that it won’t take hold of the “core gameplay experience.”

It comes as Microsoft dev boss Phil Spencer confirmed in an E3 interview published yesterday that the HD redeux of the Bungie shooter – being developed by 343 Industries – will come with support for the camera,

“It’s no surprise we’re exploring ways Kinect can enhance game experiences in authentic and meaningful ways,” said MS UK in a statement sent to us.

“The Kinect features we’re exploring with ‘Halo: Anniversary’ are additive and will not affect the core gameplay experience or alter our mission of delivering a faithful recreation of the original game. That said we have nothing else to share just yet.”

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary launches on November 15.
