Halo’s third-person origins, and other Bungie stories

By Brenna Hillier, Tuesday, 6 January 2015 02:22 GMT

Halo famously debuted to the public as a Mac game before Microsoft snapped Bungie up to secure an Xbox exclusive. But did you know it began as a third-person game?

Halo is the focus of the latest Did You Know Gaming video, and it’s a doozy. Some of this stuff is pretty well known, but there’s some great details in there about the Bungie buy out, Halo: Combat Evolved’s somewhat troubled development history, and more.

No mention of 343 Industries in there. Perhaps one day we’ll get a part two covering Halo 4, Halo 5: Guardians and the ill-fated Halo: The Master Chief Collection?
