Bravo is in with this week’s Halo Bulletin, but it’s pretty safe to say he didn’t write most of it. He did include a few details about what to expect in matchmaking, like mentioning that the Proving Ground and Extraction playlists are now available. Proving Ground replaces Team Throwdown, and Extraction is a temporary playlist running until March 31, when Squad DLC will take its spot in the playlist rotation.

Big Team Battle will also be receiving an update on the 31st to add a new gametype to the mix. The community will be able to choose one of the following popular gametypes to be implemented: Neutral Flag, Legendary Slayer BRs, or Team Snipers. To have your say, be sure to vote in this poll on the Waypoint forums.

Most of the Bulletin written by bs angel, who is moving on from her role as Community Manager to Studio Operations PM at 343. Reflecting on her experiences over the past three years, she recaps many of her highlights as Community Manager in the Bulletin, including fulfilling the wish of a 16-year-old boy battling cancer to live forever in Halo. Be sure to read this and all of her stories in this week’s Bulletin.
