343 is working on being more transparent with their communication on what’s going on with their game titles regarding changes. They also have separate teams dedicated to continued work on Halo MCC, which they assure us in no way gets in the way of any developments in Halo 5 and any work being done on future Halo games.

If you haven’t watched 343’s “Remaking the Legend”, their Halo 2: Anniversary vidoc, check it out below. Halo: Master Chief Collection is released next Tuesday, November 11 and includes Halo 2: Anniversary.
Remaking the Legend – Halo 2: Anniversary
Ok, we knew the graphics on Halo 2 Anniversary were stellar, but this trailer makes it look like a whole new adventure. November 11 can’t come soon enough.

In episode 2 of Halo Diehards’ Strat o Cast, CHa0s, KogesKoges, BigBadMike and EdieKaye explore gamers’ destiny – – specifically the Destiny on the Xbox One. We launch into first impressions of Destiny, from story mode and Strikes to matchmaking in Crucible, discussing details including whether or not Destiny truly reflects it’s promise to deliver a social game. Switching over to the Xbox One, HD co-hosts share trials and tribulations in new ownership of the next-gen console, and share how it’s standing up to the Xbox 360. Catch it all here in “Seeing our Destiny”
Since recording this episode of Strat o Cast, we’ve learned that you don’t have to go all the way back to the Xbox One dashboard to invite friends to your Destiny Fire Team. You can go to their gamercard from your Roster, and invite them from there. It’s still more steps, takes more time, and is less intuitive than what we’re used to.

A video has been released for Halo 5: Guardians, which starts for gamers this December 29th, 2014 as a beta. The beta will be available through Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
According to the video, included in the Halo 5: Guardians beta are seven maps with three game modes, eleven sandbox weapons and seven armor sets with customizations. Like Halo games of old, Spartans will start off on equal ground with “fair starts”, where everyone has the same loadouts.
Gamers will also be able to unlock and keep elements of the game, bringing them into Guardians when it’s released.
Watch the video, and see some of the Halo 5: Guardians beta maps in all their glory.
Damn you 343 for making me get excited about Halo all over again, damn you.
