From 343 Industries on the support that the Halo franchise has received over the last 20 years:

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been together though this great journey together for 20 years now. Console generations, along with human generations have risen up right in front of us during that time. And whether you preferred to spend your time in BTB with friends, replaying campaigns to try your hand against legendary Jackal Snipers, or anything in between, it’s impossible to ignore just how much your feedback and friendship have meant to us.

Thank you, and we hope you enjoy! Putting together this content for MCC to celebrate 20 years of Halo has inspired us greatly, and we couldn’t be happier to get it into your hands. So whether you’re just diving into Halo for the very first time or you’re a veteran that’s been by Sierra-117’s side since the very beginning, we’re eternally thankful to have you here.

Halo’s 20th anniversary celebrations are expected to reach a fever pitch this December, as that’s when the sixth mainline installment of the franchise, Halo Infinite, will finally be released. The shooter will be available for PC and Xbox platforms on December 8, 2021, and its multiplayer component will be free to play.
