Halo Arcade Game Announced, Developed By Raw Thrills

Microsoft has announced an on-rails Halo arcade game titled Halo: Fireteam Raven.

If you have been to an arcade, or more likely an arcade machine graveyard in a movie theater, you might have noticed that a lot of arcade machines are big cabinets with two guns for players to essentially play lightgun games with licensed properties. Most of those are made by Raw Thrills, which was itself founded by Eugene Jarvis, and Halo: Fireteam Raven is much in the same vein, but with four players. The game is also being aided in developed by Play Mechanix and 343.

The arcade game tells the story of an ODST squad during the story of Combat Evolved. While it doesn’t appear to be limited to Dave & Busters, Microsoft announced the game as first arriving at the arcade/eatery.
