Steam Database Entries For Halo 2, 3 Pop Up, Along With Other Games

According to NeoGAF user Stumpokapow there has been some strange things popping up in the Steam database lately. For those of you who don’t know, the Steam database is sort of the backbone to Steam, where games are added before they can be officially released. That way, when a game is officially added to Steam everything, from the DLC to the data to the prices is all ready to go.

What’s strange is that if you look in the database you can find entries for Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, and Halo 3. There’s not much data in there, except that the website name has been added and removed from the app, but it’s intriguing all the same. Microsoft has gone on record and said that they’re not planning on releasing the Halo games on Steam, which makes sense considering the fact that multiplayer support for Halo 2 is set to end soon.

So if they’re not going to be coming to Steam, then why are the first 3 Halo games in the database in the first place? Many people are speculating that Steam may be adding support for Steam Community hubs for non-Steam games, which seems to make sense. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what Valve surprises us with their periodical Steam updates.
