“Halo killer” is one of the more popular terms used for a highly-anticipated first-person shooter still in development; coined after the release of the revolutionary original Xbox launch title Halo: Combat Evolved. However, most titles simply cannot live up to the term, but according to EA they have an upcoming title which has a shot – Crysis 2.
EA Games label president Frank Gibeau has said that the Crytek team is trying to craft a Halo killer, using their latest title Crysis 2. Frank said the following:
“…we were trying to craft a Halo-killer, you know a product that would squarely go after what Bungie built with our partners at Crytek. So the Crysis 2 product is spectacular, very high-end, and is going to be a multi-year franchise,”
With Halo: Reach set to debut later this year, Crysis 2 will have its shot at making its point made this fall. Will Crysis 2 be a “Halo killer” against Halo itself? Post below and share your opinion!
