It’s no surprise that the Halo community is pretty thrilled right about now. And following the Halo: Master Chief Collection announcement, fans have been showing their gratitude by sending developers 343 Industries some free pizza!
Which is great! Except the developers had their pizza. But then the pizza kept coming.
Halo and pizza has a bit of a history. A few years ago as part of the Infinity Armory launch, a pizza-themed skin was added to Halo 5.
So ever since then, the Halo community has always had a bit of a love affair with pizza. And last week, a thread gained traction in the official Halo subreddit. “I will buy the first 343 employee that comments on this pizza if MCC for PC gets announced during the special announcement this month,” it says.
So right on cue, moments after 343 Industries came through with their Halo: MCC announcement for PC, fans started sending pizzas. Lots of it.
People keep sending pizza to the team today. This is the pile next to my desk. It’s pretty great. pic.twitter.com/3QPR7KOrCV— Matt (@343Wrensi) March 12, 2019

MOAR. Unknown sender, but thank you. Seriously folks, we love the gesture but raise a slice and let’s celebrate together! (plz don’t send tons of pizzas ????) pic.twitter.com/SsMtJI0nyo— Brian Jarrard (@ske7ch) March 12, 2019
Spoiler: tonnes of pizzas kept coming.
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. pic.twitter.com/KVQKGCzl5F— Brian Jarrard (@ske7ch) March 12, 2019
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.— Brian Jarrard (@ske7ch) March 13, 2019
One fan helpfully suggested that people could donate the money instead to a nearby homeless shelter, rather than sending excess food that will probably get thrown out.
[Thanks, Game Informer!]
