While I would like a Halo 3 Anniversary, its not crucial. Halo 3 is still a nice looking game. But if they do a visual overhaul, they should do Halo 3 and ODST at the same time given they're running on the same engines, share the multiplayer, etc. That would be a significant release.

Its gotta be they're adding Reach and/or a PC port. That's the only things that can excite me.

Jigsawx1 (on 22 January 2019)

Mr Puggsly (on 23 January 2019)

Well Halo:MCC and some of the 360 games are still very active. I mean MCC is a perpetual game on the most played list, I'm not sure if it ever left it.

If it's not a PC announcement and also going to Windows/Steam store, then I'll be sorely disappointed. PC players have been asking for Halo on PC for years now.

TheBird (on 22 January 2019)

They scaled back hard on the prize pool size from last years million dollar tournament.

mekail2001 (on 23 January 2019)

why does this have 7 downvotes? geez man. Also its because im pretty sure MCC has a smaller competitive scene compared to social (whereas halo 5 was huge competitive and just normal with the social scene)

Wasn't even being negative, I guess halo fans on this website are toxic.
