Halo OD Info Roundup - 10/02/2021


Recommended Posts

It is Wednesday, my dudes...

 

Forums, Twitter, Waypoint comment sections... all have been working overtime following the release of some juicy news morsels this week - what do you make of them?

 

***Halo News***

BOMB TAKEN...

Grifball has dropped as the current game of choice, so rally your teammates and get scoring!

A blue Spartan with an Energy Sword faces down against a yellow Spartan wielding the Grifball.

 

A NEW WAY TO PLAY...

Intriguing, isn't it? Speculation is rife around what this cryptic message is. The rumour mills are in overdrive after the teaser that "A new way to play" will be available for the MCC. Leading bets are on the Nintendo Switch being a big player - and if so, how long until we get Halo: Go? Pick up the clue trail yourself over at Halo Waypoint in their latest Blog post...

 

HELP WANTED: INQUIRE WITHIN YOUR NEAREST HALO ARRAY

Just as exciting was the discovery of a 343 job posting, asking for someone who has "experience shipping AAA current generation games", and that they are prepared "to help develop a new project in the Halo universe". If they're shipping a new AAA title, could it be the long, rumoured follow up to the ODST world? Perhaps even the long-awaited Halo Wars 3?

SHARPENING THE BANHAMMER

Postums has dropped the latest Dev update as well, detailing just how they are tweaking MCC server-side, as well as the changes to the (lets be honest, hated) quitter's penalty.
