ODST for XBOX ONE Master Chief Collection Released

Phew! It’s out and we’re proud to have contributed to the huge effort along with our pals at 343 to get this in your hands.

It’s been a hard journey but we’re pretty pleased with how everything has turned out. ODST is a great game and all the more so for running in our XBOX ONE interpretation of the Halo 3 engine. As well as helping ODST along we’ve also been quite busy with work for the recent MCC title updates.

Here’s a little taster of what you could (and should) be playing with an excellent commentary from Max Szlagor (senior game designer at 343) and Joseph Staten, developer from the original 360 release.
