It’s not often we get to report on just… completely good news. So let’s take a break from the usual doom and gloom and talk about how fans are “trolling” 343 Industries with pizza.

The story is like this: yesterday, 343 Industries announced the Master Chief Collection for the PC, which is an anthology of older Halo games, specifically Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo: Reach. The games will be launched in chronological order (so it’ll actually start with Reach), and players will have to buy each individual game within the collection themselves, hopefully at a reduced price.

But here’s the fun part: fans were so excited that they offered to buy the first 343i employee who responded to their Reddit thread a pizza. One such employee, Community Director Brian Jarrard, stepped up to the challenge. So fans, true to their word, sent him a pizza. Then another pizza. Then more pizza.

His twitter went from this:

"It has begun. Pizzas are actually showing up at the studio?! @Gamecheat13 you’re too kind."


To this:

"Annnnd another one. Thank you anonymous pizza donator. I think pineapple and jalapeño is a troll but it’s some on the teams favorite?! Please we don’t need more pizza. We good."


To this, in a matter of two hours:

"The Halo community is awesome. We're excited, too! Please, don't send anymore pizzas to 343 Industries. The building receptionist isn't here so it's getting logistically challenging and we really don't want to see food to go waste."


Now, I would never argue there’s such a thing as too much pizza. Heck, I would even say this isn’t even too much hype for this game. But I can say there’s not enough happy fun news in the world out there, so we should be thankful to 343 Industries, cool fans, and of course the hard-working delivery people.

Ya’ll the real heroes.
