With the 20th Anniversary of Xbox and Halo just in the rearview, as well as there being plenty of Halo crossover events with big names from Sea of Thieves to 100 Thieves, it's no shock to see that Bungie fans are hoping that Destiny 2 could be receiving its own collab dedicated to Master Chief in a few days.

On Dec. 7, the Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack is set to arrive in Destiny 2, and although the $24.99 USD offering is said to offer an arsenal of weapons, gear and cosmetics "inspired by Bungie’s past," its new screenshots suggest that Halo content could be a part of the fun as well.

Bungie, long applauded for their efforts developing the ever-iconic Halo series from Halo: Combat Evolved (2001) to Halo: Reach (2010), have also long been separated from the franchise, having left the rights and duties to Microsoft's 343 Industries to run the show for over a decade now.

As such, Halo content and lore haven't made any appearances in any of Bungie's works since then.

When the new Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack screenshots dropped on Dec. 2, however, more and more players are beginning to believe that that drought is perhaps about to end.

Aside from the new Destiny content, such as a new dungeon, the Gjallarhorn Exotic Rocket Launcher and Thorn armor set, Bungie is set to introduce other new items in commemoration of some of their previous works.

While some exact replicas of items from their older works are being spotted for the upcoming offering's screenshots, such as the Claymore sword from Myth: The Fallen Lords, players are noticing other new weapons and gear that are seemingly from Halo.

While some of the new armor pieces seem to have subtle details reminiscent of the Arbiter or the Needler, stowed away on the backs of these display characters also appear to be rifles used by the UNSC and the Covenant.

Ultimately, whether or not these items are officially from Halo, or simply "inspired" due to Bungie not having the rights, should be pretty clear once the pack actually drops.
