Halo 2 Coming To Windows Vista (Updated)
12:50 PM | Cord Kruse | 25 comments

Microsoft recently announced that Halo 2 will be coming to PC as a Windows Vista only title. Halo 2 is the sequel to the popular first person shooter epic and continues the story of Master Chief's struggle against Earth's enemies. A Microsoft Game Studios team, in partnership with Bungie, will port the game to Vista, Microsoft's upcoming new operating system due later this year. The title will include both Halo 2 and the multiplayer map pack.

In "Halo 2" for Windows Vista, the action picks up where the first game ended. Master Chief, with the help of a small group of marines, has destroyed the religious artifact and artificial world known as "Halo," and is making his way back to Earth. There, he and the last surviving Earth forces will mount a titanic struggle against the marauding Covenant enemy.
Whether or not Halo 2's status as a Windows Vista game will prevent the possibility of an eventual Mac version remains to be seen. Keep an eye on IMG for more information.


Update: Bungie.net has posted an article about the upcoming Vista version of Halo 2. Towards the end of the article, a mention about a Mac version is made:

There's loads of questions the Bungie faithful will ask, like, "Will there be a Mac version?" We can't answer that yet. It's not out of the question, but it's not definitely happening either. We promise to keep you posted.
So while this not good news for Mac gamers, it at least shows that Bungie is aware of Mac gamers and their desire to play Halo 2 on a Mac. We'll be sure to keep you posted.
