Original story follows.

343 Industries has been flooded with pizza from adoring fans following the announcement that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC – and the developer is kindly asking fans to stop with the cheesy goodness.

Last week, prior to an Inside Xbox announcement that the collection will make its way to PC game by game, a Halo Reddit thread was started, with one fan saying they’d “buy the first 343 employee that comments on this pizza if MCC for PC gets announced.” After 343 community director Brian Jarrard ‏got involved with the thread, fully in support of receiving free pizza, fans that were elated by Tuesday’s announcement decided to get on board and send a deluge of pizzas to 343’s offices in Redmond, Washington.

Jarrard took to Twitter soon after the announcement, saying “It has begun. Pizzas are actually showing up at the studio?!” He thanked @GameCheat13, a very happy Halo modder, for the pizza. But the crust and toppings didn’t stop there.

After receiving multiple pizzas, including ones with pineapple and jalapeño for some reason, Jarrard continually implored fans to stop sending pizzas, saying “Please we don’t need more pizza,” “Please we don’t need more pizza. We good.” and “plz don’t send tons of pizzas.” Ultimately, he put his foot down, saying “The Halo community is awesome. We’re excited, too! Please, don’t send anymore pizzas to 343 Industries. The building receptionist isn’t here so it’s getting logistically challenging and we really don’t want to see food to go waste.”

Earlier this week, 343 announced that the previous Xbox One exclusive Halo: The Master Chief Collection would be coming to PC and Steam game by game throughout 2019, and also announced the collection would be receiving Halo: Reach, Bungie’s final Halo game. Since Halo 3: ODST has also come to the collection, it’s more of a Halo anthology than anything, and we’re quite alright with that.
