Nick Baker, a well-known XboxEra insider, assures that there is a second Xbox saga that is receiving a treatment similar to that of the Master Chief remastered collection.
Microsoft has occupied many headlines in recent days due to the purchase of Activision Blizzard , although this unexpected news does not mean that Xbox will not continue betting on some of its licenses. Remastering has been the order of the day for a few generations and, after the success of Halo: The Master Chief Collection , Xbox would be thinking of bringing back another of its great sagas with a renewed technical section. According to Gaming Bolt , a well-known insider claims that an Xbox franchise is receiving treatment similar to that of the Master Chief collection ; it is speculated that it could be Gears of War or Fable. You can see his statements in the following podcast ( time 1:32:50 ).
Nick Baker, co-founder of XboxEra, says there is a second very famous Xbox saga that is “getting a Halo: The Master Chief Collection treatment “. Although Baker didn’t go into detail about which franchise it is, he did note that the remastered collection will most likely arrive sometime in 2023 . Let us remember that The Master Chief Collection includes all the Halos that were launched from Halo: Combat Evolved to Halo 4 with a totally renewed technical section and with the particularity of being able to change the original technical section with the updated one with a simple button , a feature that could arrive in this new collection.
Hands down, the two most likely sagas are Gears of War and Fable . Not only because of its popularity, but because of future installments that will arrive for both Xbox Series X/S and PC . It is rumored that Gears of War 6 would take time to arrive because The Coalition would currently be developing a new saga, so a remastered collection of Gears of War would not be unreasonable to liven up the wait for the future sixth installment. On the other hand, Playground Games has been working on the Fable reboot for more than four years, so it would not be surprising if Xbox wanted to launch a collection with the previous installments to make the wait more bearable.
