Halo developers, 343 Industries, have done a lot to ease the concerns of Halo fans. Halo 4 was a dud. We know it. They know it. Over the past few months, 343 Industries has given everything Halo fans want.

At E3, they announced the Halo: Master Chief Collection. Halo’s 1-4 are coming in one package. Halo 2 gets the remastered touch this time with its multiplayer completely intact. One question many Halo fans had was, what would happen to the ranking system? Today, 343 announced Halo 2’s original ranking system would return. On top of that, 343 announced Sanctuary is getting the remastered touch-up. 343 brought in some Halo pros to try out Sanctuary. Check out the short clip below.
