Thank you! :) One other quick point that bodes well for 343 hopefully eventually adding in the Halo Online maps - In the latest Dev Update, they actually brought content across from Halo Online into MCC in the form of new armor sets. So they've obviously got their eyes on that game as a source of content for MCC moving forward.
It's definitely an interesting map! and I forgot that some of the Halo 2 PC maps weren't in halo 2 Xbox likewise to halo CE. With what 343 has shown the new skins, though I I believe that they should be added to halo 4 than 3, it show's that they are definitely looking at halo online content!. I will add this map to the OP and credit you.
Yeah, Sky Bridge is the one really interesting super secret map I know about, I actually learned about it lurking on Waypoint threads myself. Since they've already included all the Halo 2 Vista maps and Halo PC, I don't think there's too much else. I know 343s talked about including some of the Halo CE maps which would be a ton of fun as some of them were really professional but in all honesty I would much rather see Reactor, Edge, Sky Bridge, Icebox and Diamondback make an entry into the official series. Fingers crossed 343 does this, I know they've actually mentioned it before.
It would actually be super cool if they ported over Reactor and Edge at least because they are unique only to Halo Online. While they're at it maybe they could just port over Icebox and Diamondback, but I'm more fine with those being excluded because they're essentially reskins. More interestingly, they could polish off Sky Bridge which was an almost complete map that never made it's way into the public build of the game. Look it up on Halopedia, it's pretty cool.Honestly, I know there is some people that dont want diamondback or icebox to be ported over as they are already existing maps within halo 2 & 3, but I can't really weigh the negatives against the positives which are more map varety/ recreation of existing maps, a port from halo 2 to 3 & of course it keeps the maps fresh. Personally I'm tired of avalanche as it seems to more common in the current rotation. Oh, how I long for the veto system to make a return.
The Sky Bridge map is news to me! I had no idea this existed! it does indeed look really cool and I would be interested in seeing this also make it to the mcc. This is a good find is there anymore like this? I'm sure 343i could partner up with sabre interactive to get this done
I hope that the (understandable) backlash doesn't put 343 off of bringing content over from halo online. I have seen the armours and some of them do look out of place, whereas other sets compliment halo 3 really well. I think that issue bothers me more about how they have changed existing models. With this mindset in mind, I figure people would not react well to having "Edge
" thrown into Halo 3 due to it looking visually more like Halo 4. "Edge" would, however, be right at home in Halo 4!
& Skybridge would still be great to introduce into halo 3, Diamondback
is looking more appealing to become a Halo Reach map for BTB and invasion gametypes.
With all this said, it is physically proven that assets from halo online can be brought over to the MCC, and this excites me and gives me much more hope that we will see these maps make their way into the collection! 'fingers crossed'.
