I was just reading the latest interview with Gearbox's Michel Bastien over at Homelan when I caught a sad bit of news amongst the gushing.
This may be old news to some of you but the last I'd heard was that they weren't sure yet. Way to soften the blow by suggesting the mod community quit whining and do it themselves Mike, that's great.
HomeLAN - Can you give us a status report on whether or not co-op play or mod tools will be include in the PC port?
Michel Bastien - Unfortunately, cooperative multiplayer wonÃ‚'t make it in. While it was definitely high on our priority list, we have focused our energies on kick-ass online play, new multiplayer maps, vehicle and weapons as well as brand new multiplayer features for matchmaking and game mode customization.
We plan on supporting the MOD community (stay tuned to http://www.bungie.net for details as they become available). We expect that these will take the Halo multiplayer experience into new territoriesÃ‚"…
