The Halo Bulletin: Inaugural Frankie Edition

Halo Waypoint has posted up an interesting article entitled "The Halo Bulletin: Inaugural Frankie Edition" in which 343 Industries Franchise Director Frank O'Connor discusses the Halo franchise's announcements at this year's E3.

Not much is said regarding Halo 4, but a lot of information is given regarding Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. A few key points:

- The game will retail for $39.99 (US)
- The Back button will be used during Campaign to toggle between the new and original graphics
- The multiplayer will actually be Halo: Reach's Multiplayer, and it sounds like the seven maps shipping will essentially be a map pack for Halo: Reach (and thus I suspect it'll be made available as DLC for that game at some point)
- One of the maps will be a unique Firefight map which will do something never before seen in Firefight. I suspect it'll involve the Flood, but that's just my guess.
- The soundtrack has been rerecorded by the Skywalker Orchestra

I personally found this article a very interesting read, and you can check it out right here.
