Announced by 343 Industries (The new holders of the Halo franchise), Halo: Reach will receive a Title Update to address issues and feedback from Halo: Reach players.
This was mentioned quite some time ago to be coincided with the release of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. The multiplayer in Halo: CE Anniversary will pretty much be using the same backend as Halo: Reach but will also include its own set of playlists and modes that will be more accurate towards Halo: CE’s original multiplayer.
So, what is new? Turns out that Halo: Reach will get early access to this Title Update that will be used for Halo: CE’s debut in a form of beta playlists. When you login to Halo: Reach on September 21st, you will receive an update but you will not see anything different within the game. So, guess what? It’s a damn prep update just to tease you.
On October 4th, however, a new Beta Playlist will appear among all the other fancy playlists which will feature all the changes that they intend on making to the multiplayer. Just don’t expect your Halo: CE 3-hit magnum headshot feature just yet. 343i will use this data along with feedback on their forums to make further tweaks to the game. Eventually, when Halo: CE Anniversary comes out, it will go out of beta and the last bit of adjustments will be made.
