Herr Zrbo Calls It

Alright folks, here it is, I'm calling it. I'm gonna say the Mythic map pack for Halo 3 will be released September 23rd.

How do I know this when the map pack hasn't even been given the name 'Mythic', nor when any possible release window has even been discussed by Bungie studios? Well, with the release of 'Cold Storage' this past week for free (an excellent remake of the original Halo's 'Chill Out') Bungie has bought itself some time until it needs to release the next map pack. The last set of maps, the Legendary map pack, was released last April. We've got about two and a half months now until late September, the 25th being the one year anniversary of Halo 3's launch. Since new content is usually released on Tuesday, the 23rd looks like a fine day to release a map pack celebrating that anniversary. Considering that the map packs so far have been named after the difficulty levels in Halo, even though Mythic isn't an actual difficulty level, it's long been associated with Bungie studios.

You heard it here first folks, and if I'm wrong, I owe you a Coke.
