343 Industries har i dag meddelt, at de bruger al pladsen på den 45GB store Blu-ray skive og da de ikke ville gå på kompromis med kvaliteten, kræver det at der downloades en 20GB stor indholds opdatering som de kalder det, første gang spillet sættes i.
Executive producer Dan Ayoub siger:
From the start, our philosophy has been to give Halo fans the best possible experience and not compromise the quality or features of the collection. The result is that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will take up almost all of the usable space of a single Blu-ray (45 GB), and we will also issue a content update at launch that is estimated to be 20 GB. You'll be able to start playing Campaign and more as the content is installing, with some features and multiplayer content being added via the update. Yes, the update is large, but we weren't about to cut corners to save disc space. This ensures that you are getting every bit of Halo goodness we can fit in. Our work is not done, however, as we continue to tune, tweak and optimise the online experience to ensure a smooth multiplayer launch. This will continue right up until launch day.
343 Industries kunne på samme tid meddele, at spillet er rykket tre dage frem og vil nu udkomme i Europa samme dag som den amerikanske udgave, nemlig den 11. november.
