Halo Weekly Update 6/5/14

Less than a week until E3! It seems there won’t be a matchmaking update next week, and that’s understandable given that the team at 343 Industries is currently laying the final touches on their big reveal. Speaking of which, if you don’t already know, that reveal is due to appear during the Xbox: Game On media briefing – taking place Monday June 9th at 9.30am PDT. Make sure to tune in via Xbox.com, Xbox Live, Windows Phone, or Spike TV if you’re in the US/Canada.

Also, in case you haven’t noticed, 343 Industries has now secured the Twitter handle “@Halo” and has now migrated from @HaloWaypoint to this new handle. If you were following @HaloWaypoint, you now follow @Halo, and if you’re not following @Halo, you should go do that now!
