Rumours:

Change list & other notes:

  • Halo MCC is released but in disarray so I’ve not changed any of the listings for it as I assume all the studios are likely to be still working on it.
  • Added United Front Games to the list of Halo MCC developers, they developed the front end menu
  • Added a few notes about LiftLondon, Press Play and Rare, changed formatting of the other information list
