Last week we finally got the official reveal of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which is coming to PC later this year.
There were rumours of the port for a while, with teases that carried on up until just a few hours before the game’s official reveal. On Reddit, one user shouted out developer 343 Industries, saying they’ll buy a pizza for the first 343 employees that comment if MCC gets announced for PC this month.
It didn’t talk long for Brian Jarrard, 343’s community director to respond. He asked: “what kind of pizza are we talking about?” and later tweeted out a pizza emoji, strongly suggesting we’d be getting the game reveal we were all hoping for.
Pizza suddenly became synonymous with the reveal, leading dozens of people to send pizza over to 343 Industries.

As a thank you for the overwhelmingly positive response to the PC reveal, 343 is now offering up a free new skin in Halo 5 – and it’s a pepperoni pizza skin.

Naturally, fans are loving the news because really, what’s better than a games company getting in on the meme action?!
At first, 343 had given us pizza.
Then, we had repaid them with our pizzas.
Now, we have come full circle pic.twitter.com/eQg7kpNBf8

Although there’s no set release date for the Halo: Master Chief Collection on PC, it’s expected to launch by the end of 2019.
