Happy Halloween everybody!  With the release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection a mere two weeks away, Microsoft decided to give Xbox gamers a nice treat.  They produced an hour long retrospective documentary on the development and release of my favorite game in the Halo series, Halo 2, and the process of remaking the game for the newest Xbox console.  I still remember waiting out in the cold for this game’s midnight release ten years ago, but I never realized just what a momentous occasion I was taking part in until I found out I participated in one of the biggest entertainment launches of its time.

The documentary is up now and you can download and stream it for free on the Xbox Video service for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.  If it isn’t on the main page just do a search for “Halo” and you’ll find it pretty quickly.  If you don’t have an Xbox 360 or Xbox One and would like to catch the documentary anyway, Microsoft is planning to stream it on their Twitch.TV Channel a few times this weekend.  Check below for the schedule.

• Friday, Oct. 31 at 12pm PST/3pm EST
• Saturday, Nov. 1 at 6pm PST/9pm EST
• Sunday, Nov. 2 at 6pm PST/9pm EST

Microsoft also plans to put the documentary on the Halo Channel on November 11th, 2014.  As of this time of writing, the Halo Channel has not yet officially launched on any platform, nor has Microsoft announced a release date for it, so this announcement could be taken as a small confirmation that the channel will be up in time for Xbox One release of the Halo remakes.

Halo 2: Anniversary is coming as part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which is going to be released November 11th, 2014 exclusively on the Xbox One.
