I wonder if it'll be the Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary version.

Will this be a system seller to original Halo 2 players?

No, they're using the original game engines for each game.

You can play Battle Creek in the Halo CE engine, or Beaver Creek in the Halo 2 engine.

You can play all 100 maps, in the respective engines, with increased resolution and framerate on dedicated servers through one multiplayer menu and matchmaking system.

Possibly - the fact that they're calling it "arena" multiplayer is telling of their (assumed) intent to return to the series roots.

But to the point of this collection, I'm so incredibly excited for this package. Can't wait to play BTB on waterworks!

Holy Fucking Shit. As an old Halo 1 tournament player, this is the greatest news I could have ever heard.

The news that they are leaving obvious, exploitable bugs in the multiplayer mode is outright stupid if true and I hope they revise that decision, or make it a option for custom games only.

Chief was only in Reach for like 5 seconds, would be a stretch to put Reach in a Master Chief Collection. Something they can save for a later compilation perhaps, along with ODST and maybe Halo Wars.

From the ign article.

Furthermore, I asked and was assured that 343 is implementing a similar sort of leveling system as Halo 2, where you could actually lose rank if you lost enough matches. “We are in the process of constructing a leveling system,” Ayoub said. “You’ll be able to go down and work your way back up."

So if I got this right, all maps will use their original engine respectively (albeit at 1080p, though that doesn't mean much), except for 6 Halo 2 maps?

They should copy this idea at next year's E3 with Gears of War.

Gears of War collection late 2015, and then the new Gears in 2016.

That's if they want $120 of my money, if not I can keep it.

I Hope Midship, Lockout, and Ivory Tower were part of the 6 remade maps. At least Midship and Lockout.

Halo:CEA cutscenes just didn't work with the graphics engine they were trying to overlay, I can understand them going with CG for Halo 2.

No, the original cutscenes were lame. They were always the worst part of Halo (up through Reach), so poorly done graphically.
