We’re currently in a little bit of a low point for news this week and until more rumors surface, if any, we won’t get much until the time E3 rolls around. Not to worry though as we this week’s Halo Bulletin to review and discuss. He have a new issue of Halo Escalation, updates coming to matchmaking next week, and the announcement that the Halo Waypoint mobile applications being discontinued. Also, for those who have been involved with the PC side of Halo, the Custom Map Team as come out with their V3 of their remastered Halo Campaign for The Silent Cartographer.
We know it’s been coming for a while, but we finally know thanks to an article posted on Xbox Wire this morning that Twitch Broadcasting is coming to Xbox One on March 11th. What’s also important about that date is the release of Titanfall and its corresponding Xbox One dashboard update that will include the Twitch capabilities. You can already watch Twitch streams on your Xbox One, but now you’ll be able to join in on the streaming fun without any additional hardware. Imagine streaming your next big Halo experience for all to see as you master the campaign, commentate over saved films or possibly spectator mode, or document your Forging experience while others watch how you create your craft. This opens up quite a few doors of possibilities for our next Halo experience on Xbox One and we are excited to see what the community will do with it.
The New York Toy Fair has wrapped up and we saw some really cool toys, figures and swag get shown off. To help cover some of the Mega Bloks detail, (which I’m personally interested in) we had HaloFanForLife drop by the show to go over some additional details on the sets. We also go over a few extra things from Crowded Coop that we didn’t cover on lasts show and how much your wallet will hurt after this year. In addition to the toy fair news, we have this week’s latest Halo Bulletin discussing the upcoming matchmaking playlist rotation for Medal Madness on March 3rd. An update to the Xbox One version of Spartan Assault is also coming to fix some stability issues.
Halo collectors will be happy to see all of the stuff that is coming out of the New York Toy Fair that is going on right now. We’ve had quite a lot get posted from just the first day and we talked about it in our latest episode. More is sure to come, but there are a lot of things in this first batch from the more popular Halo Mega Blok, Todd McFarlane Toys and general swag items that people will want to get their hands on. Here’s the major grabs from yesterday’s Halo Waypoint twitter account and a few other relative tweets.

It just so happens that the rumor mill never sleeps and is never without its crazy side. We mentioned on our last show how Steve Downes confirmed the existence of Halo 2 Anniversary, or so we thought. Since then, IGN has reached out and received some clarification that Downes was simply making a statement based on what people have rumored on the internet, but that’s not all there is to it. We made a post about IGN’s findings yesterday and encourage everyone to go out and develop your own opinion, but we voice ours during the show. In other news, the New York Toy Fair started this week and we have seen some pretty cool things that any Halo fan will want to get their hands on. We’ve just seen our first glances at McFarlane figures, Mega Bloks sets, and other swag goodness.
Just as quickly as our hopes were lifted high with the announcement of Halo 2 Anniversary, it’s been debunked over at IGN and clarified by Steve Downes, who originally made the comment on the interview we mentioned over at Game Zone. In the Game Zone article, Steve Downes said “I think you may be ahead of yourself on H5. I wouldn’t expect anything until 2015. What you can look forward to this year is an anniversary edition of Halo 2.” After the interview was released, IGN reached out to Steve Downes and received the following: “What I said was: ‘I think you’re ahead of yourself on H5. I have read some things on line that you can look forward to a H2 anniversary edition maybe this year, but I have no official information one way or the other.’ I was just mentioning some of the things I had read online about Halo 2. I have no idea if there will be an anniversary edition and didn’t mean to leave that impression.”
If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last 24 hours, then you would have heard about the upcoming Steve Downes interview. If you have been living under a rock, why are you under that rock? Come out already, unless you’re snowed in, in which case, carry on. In an interview GameZone.com did with Steve Downes, they mention that our beloved Chief confirmed the release of Halo 2 Anniversary this year with Halo 5 being pushed back for the next (out now). There is still no official work from Microsoft or 343 Industries on the matter, however. Team heavies has been a lovely addition to the matchmaking experience for the last two weeks, but it’s time to say adieu and welcome Big Rumble detailed in this week’s Halo Bulletin.
