343 Industries Claims Halo 3: ODST Release Date Leak Was A Placeholder

Gaming / Xbox

A slip of the button may have let the cat out of the bag and revealed a Halo 3: ODST release date of this Friday, May 29th. Many Halo gamers have been patiently waiting for the release following issues with the release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Part of the extended olive branch towards gamers from 343 Industries included releasing a remastered version of Halo 3: ODST and it was expected sometime in May.

A listing for the game appeared briefly on the Xbox store and displayed a release date of May 29th – this Friday – and a download size of 8.1GB.

The listing has since been removed and the official Halo Twitter account has indicated that it was inadvertently listed and is simply a placeholder.

So what do you think? Will we see Halo 3: ODST before the end of the month from 343 Industries or will we be waiting a little while longer? Let us know in the comments below, or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.
