Halo: The Master Chief Collection Rumor

Shortly after the announcement of Halo 5: Guardians, a rumoured Halo: The Master Chief Collection surfaced and spread like wildfire. Just want to say, nothing has been confirmed. This was being reported my engadget, then IGN, Polygon, and more started picking up this story. But this isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors of bringing Halo games to the Xbox One.

Halo-Master-Chief-Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is apparently coming this year for Xbox One and it will have Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4. This collection will not include ODST, Reach, or Halo Wars as Master Chief wasn’t the main protagonist in those games.

This could also be what Bonnie Ross meant when she announced Halo 5: Guardians. She stated that it’s “…a “journey,” rather than a destination – and that journey definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step.”

Now if you remember back to the NeoGaf leaks from back in January, nut-kernel stated that there would be 2 editions for Halo 2 Anniversary.

  • A Collector’s Edition – access to Halo 5 beta, and
  • A War Collection – which would have access to the Halo 5 beta and on top of that ports of Halo 3 and Halo 4 for Xbox One.

This leaker has been pretty spot on so far. Perhaps this War Collection is actually the now rumoured Halo: The Master Chief Collection. What do you guys think? Perhaps there could be a stand-alone Halo 2 Anniversary and also a Halo: The Master Chief Collection which would contain Halo CE to Halo 4 with a remastered Halo 2 Anniversary.

Halo 2 Anniversary Master Chief Prototype Toy?!

Earlier today HaloWaypoint began tweeting out photos of some toys at this year’s Toy Fair in New York. Among the photos, 2 of them were of prototypes from the popular McFarlane Toys. The first being a prototype Master Chief figure modeled after the Halo on Xbox One trailer that we’re all very familiar with.

Complete with a cloak and a promethean boltshot. In regards to this photo, there isn’t much to say. The real story lies within the second photo; A photo of a Halo 2 Master Chief prototype. So here we are again, it feels like 343 is teasing us.

I would just like to point out that this isn’t some old left over toy from 2004. McFarlane toys didn’t start making Halo toys till after Halo 3’s launch. Prior to this, Joyride was making Halo toys (most notably the one used for the famous Arby ‘n’ the Chief Machinima series). This figurine begs the question. Why make one for a game that’s over 10 years old?
