Although 343 Industries announced at the beginning of May that the remastered version of Halo 3: ODST would be released for Halo: The Master Chief Collection sometime during this month, it has yet to materialize. Yesterday, the Xbox Store at Xbox.com listed the game as releasing on May 29, a date that would fit in with the previously talked about release date, but the page has since been taken down and developer 343 Industries have revealed that this was simply a placeholder date.

Frank O’Connor, the head of Halo franchise development, has also defended the decision to release a 20GB update for The Master Chief Collection on launch. Speaking on NeoGAF, he explained that the update was not just a an update for game but rather content that would not fit on a single disc. “That’s not a patch,” said O’Connor. “ It’s content. The game is designed to run as a single, unified product, digital is seamless obviously, but we also wanted disc users to have the same experience, without swapping discs. Since the bulk of it is MP or MP related, the logic is sound. There will ALSO be a TU in there, but that in itself is a tiny fraction of the content.”
