But what about those that have been saving up for the inevitable Legendary Edition
? I’m afraid I have some bad news for you as 343 Industries stated, “We decided to focus our efforts on a single special edition instead of numerous ones so you wouldn’t have to pick and choose between what ancillary items you want.”
Will you miss having a new Legendary Edition? Frankly, I’m glad I won’t be tempted by another huge item that would probably end up just taking up space in my closet.
