Halo is a Microsoft game. Microsoft and Linux arent exactly best buddies.

maybe

Maybe eventually it will be supported. Halo relies heavily on DX and most likely alot of calls to DX9 which is the biggest problem with wine/winex. The less a given game relies on DX the easier it is for wine to run it. Although winex does a great job so far and will continue to better itself in the future. If its that big of a deal instead of monkeying around with wine/winex just install a small windows partition for gaming. Its what I used to do when I was more of a gamer.

Update - 2017

Microsoft has changed a lot in the last 14 years. Not enough for me to want to run Windows or regularly use Microsoft Office, but they've changed their attitude toward Linux and open source.

Microsoft Azure runs Linux
Up-to-date versions of Skype are available for Linux
Microsoft Office for Windows supports ODT, with better support with each new version
Windows Subsystem for Linux, so you can have some Bash commands in Windows
Microsoft provides signed keys for some Linux distributions so they can still boot on Windows 10 PCs which have Secure Boot and can't turn off Secure Boot
Microsoft has its own open source group: Microsoft Enterprise Open Source Group
Microsoft SQL Server is available for Linux
Microsoft has its own Linux distribution
Microsoft released specs for Office formats
Visual Studio Code is available for Linux
