Halo: Combat Evolved is a 2001 military science fiction first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie and published by Microsoft Game Studios. The first game of the Halo franchise, it was released as a launch title for the Xbox gaming system on November 15, 2001, and is considered the platform’s “killer app". More than five million copies were sold worldwide by November 2005. Microsoft released versions of the game for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X in 2003, and the surrounding storyline was adapted and elaborated into a series of novels, comic books, and live-action web series. The game was later released as a downloadable Xbox Original for the Xbox 360. A high-definition remake, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, was released for Xbox 360 on the 10th anniversary of the original game’s launch, and was rereleased as part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection on November 11, 2014, for the Xbox One.
New content seems to be coming for Halo 5: Guardians as Microsoft is teasing the release of new DLC for the game. A new Twitter post from the official Halo channel says “Shall we play a game?” which seems to be referencing a new multiplayer game mode.
Halo and Xbox have been synonymous with each other for a very good reason; the first Halo game was released with the original Xbox console in 2001. Halo: Combat Evolved became a launch title for the console after Microsoft purchased its developer, Bungie, shortly before the release in 2001.
