During an interview with Gamespot, Microsoft Game Studios corporate vice-president Phil Spencer confirmed that 343 Industries’ Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary will support Kinect. He did not clarify exactly what Kinect features will be supported, but one can only assume some sort of voice control. Maybe.
“Core focus for us in our press briefing this year with Kinect actually came from two sides,” Spencer explained.
“As a first-party, we believe that Kinect will be important to all genres of games, be it racing games with Forza, combat games like Ryse. Even games like Halo Anniversary has Kinect integration.”
“It’s not a mandate that everything we do in first party has to support Kinect right now. But I will say, specifically with voice, that there are some things that just seem to make navigating and playing games so much easier…that I would guess the answer will be yes in the end that you’ll see all first-party games using some form of Kinect functionality.”
