343 Industries recently published a blog post announcing a new update dedicated to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which would allow players to “buy” items in the progression system.
The news certainly did not go unnoticed by the most attentive and vigilant eyes of the gamers, creating a little bad temper, “forcing” the development team to remove this item from the update, and clarifying that the work will not contain any type of microtransaction.
Here are the words of Tyler Davis, Community Support & Engagement Coordinator of 343 Industries:
“There was one line in the interview where we were talking about using the season points to purchase unlocks. The word purchase was misunderstood to mean money. We updated the wording to remove the word “purchase” to “unlock” in the blog.”
We remind you that the Halo: The Master Chief Collection is already available for purchase, in full form, on Xbox One, including all the chapters of the iconic saga dedicated to John-117.
The PC version of the collection currently features “only” the first two titles, although the development team recently confirmed that they are working to introduce Halo 3 with the next update for Season 2, which will make further changes to the progression system and, for the first time in 19 years, new skins for EC vehicles and weapons.
