Halo: Combat Evolved is a first-person shooter developed by Bungie, inc and released as a launch title for Microsoft's Xbox console on November 15th 2001. The game was a success all around, selling five million copies in four years, and receiving massive critical acclaim all over. The game (as well as its four sequels) were all exclusive to Microsoft hardware, due to Microsoft purchasing Bungie and owning the rights to the Halo IP from there on out. This purchase occurred midway through development of the first game however, with Bungie originally intending for the game to be a multiplatform release. This included a PlayStation 2 port.

A build of the game had been developed for the PlayStation 2 by Bungie, but due to Microsoft's acquisition of them in 2000, the port never saw the light of day. All that has resurfaced of this port of the game is roughly four minutes worth of footage uploaded by IGN taken from gaming website GameStar's German decision. Other than this footage, nothing has resurfaced from this version, and due to Halo's still rampant popularity and marketability, is unlikely to anytime soon.

This would had been bad for xbox nowadays due to the fact halo is one of the xbox one exclusives they have only besides gears of war (literally only have 2 big franchises exclusive to xbox one that is why it sucks currently. PS4 has like tons of big exclusives like uncharted god of war rachet and clank jak and dexter mlb the show).

I can certainly see where you're coming from with that, especially seeing as if it weren't for master chief, THIS would be the Xboxs biggest mascot https://en.m...Time_Sweeper. Still though, it would probably be very interesting too see the alternate universe where Halo was a multiplatform release none the less.
