Halo: The Master Chief Collection – 100 Days Later
E3 2014 - 343 Industries officially announces The Master Chief Collection, which will consist of both campaign and online multiplayer for Halo CE, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo 2 Anniversary. I still remember the feelings of shock and disbelief; the adrenaline coursing through my veins at the realization that Halo was BACK!
One year later, the feelings of shock and disbelief remain, though for an entirely different reason. The Master Chief Collection, released just over 100 days ago, has etched its place in video game history as one of the worst video game releases of all time.
Rhys Weir (aka TheLittleMoa) has put together a 5,000+ word article which was recently posted at Beyond Entertainment. The article stands as a record of all that has happened during the first 100 days since the release of The Master Chief Collection.
The article begins:
Halo: The Master Chief Collection was announced back at E3 2014. Shortly before the event, numerous leaks were slipping out from 343 Industries about what title we would be receiving for Fall 2014. When the announcement came out that Halo5: Guardians would be releasing in 2015, many fans were eager to hear of a possible Halo 2 Anniversary or something more. When E3 2014 finally rolled around, we were blown away.
Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 2’s original multiplayer, all games running at 1080p and 60 frames per second, beta access to Halo 5: Guardians – this was the ultimate Halo package that was going to be an absolute steal at $59.99.
Back when the leaks about Halo: The Master Chief Collection starting coming out, no one wanted to believe that something like this was possible. The sheer manpower required to make a package like this work made it sound like a dream we would never get. When 343 Industries finally announced it, we were left to believe it was possible and it would be in our hands on November 11th, 2014.
