343 Industries Asks the ElDewrito Team to Halt Work on ‘Halo Online’ and Discusses Community Content

April 25th, 2018
Looks like the inevitable was addressed yesterday, as 343 Industries shared over at HaloWaypoint that they and Microsoft are strongly encouraging the ElDewrito team to cease working on their 'Halo Online' project. If you remember, 'Halo Online' was a game Microsoft released only in Russia to test the waters for Halo on PC, but cancelled shortly after. It's a tricky situation, but one 343 Industries explains very well I felt in their Waypoint post. (Thanks munky-058!)(MacGyver10 18:28:55 UTC)

Halo Community Update 04/12/18 – ‘Worlds Renown’

April 13th, 2018
Rightfully so, but a very Halo World Championship-themed Community Update this week from our prodigal, GrimBrotherOne. There is the obvious and heavy amount of content for our version of the Super Bowl, but some cool stuff in particular are the free stuff you can get for watching on Mixer this weekend, your last chance to get the Arena-themed Legendary Crate and some recaps of other HCS events. Ske7ch did a great job culling content from the community as well (check out that aesthetic map for the Titanic)!(MacGyver10 21:56:07 UTC)

The Halo TV Series with Steven Spielberg Possibly Starting to Film in October in Budapest, Hungary

April 12th, 2018
While we might need to take this with a grain of salt right now, it seems the Halo TV series might have a filming location and start time for this October in Budapest, Hungary. As of right now, we have no confirmation (no, fake Kiki accounts don't count) if this is true or not, but hopefully this is actually going to happen!(MacGyver10 15:16:29 UTC)
