Microsoft thinking about porting Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach to Xbox One

Microsoft and its in-house game development studio 343 Industries are thinking about bringing two more Halo games made originally for the Xbox 360, Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach, to the Xbox One.

Microsoft will be bringing Halo 1-4 to the Xbox One in the form of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, in November. But Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach, both originally developed by Bungie, did not have Master Chief as the main character. There was also another reason, according to what 343 Industries executive producer Dan Ayoub told "Quite honestly, the other part of it was just disc space. We're squeezing everything we can out of the available space for this thing."

However, those two games might show up on the Xbox One one day. Ayoub stated:

"What I can tell you is probably the biggest question we get from people is, what about ODST and Reach. What I can say is it's certainly not in our development timeline or planning right now [but] we've heard that question so much that it has seeped into our collective subconscious. I think enough people have asked about it that we are thinking about it."
