If you're still feeling a little raw about all the problems that Halo: The Master Chief Collection has had since launch, 343 Industries is hoping that a remake of Halo 3: ODST will help rebuild a friendship with the company.

In a recent blog post on Halo Waypoint, Head of 343 Industries Bonnie Ross continued to apologize for the problems that gamers have experienced with Halo: The Master Chief Collection since launch.

Next week, 343 Industries will release an update that will add 10 episodes of the cooperative experience “Spartan Ops” for Halo 4. Also – as a way of saying thank you to fans – 343 Industries will also give away the following to gamers who have played Halo: The Master Chief Collection online at any time since launch:

  •  1 Month of Xbox Live Gold
  •  Exclusive In-Game Nameplate
  •  Exclusive In-Game Avatar

Most importantly however, 343 Industries has already started work on remaking the Halo 2: Anniversary multiplayer map Relic and Halo 3: ODST as free downloadable additions, which will release sometime in the – hopefully near – future.

Our Take
This is a nice way to say thinks. 343 Industries did some damage to the reputation and to fans' trust with the release of The Master Chief Collection, so it's nice to see that they're taking these problems seriously.
