Pringles’ latest flavor is based on the Moa Burger from the planet Reach. If you aren’t familiar with that particular planet or flavor, it may be because it is based on a flightless bird/delicacy from 2010’s Halo: Reach.
Halo’s Twitter account announced the surprising collaboration with Pringles, revealing that Moa Burger is a limited-edition flavor that is now being sold exclusively at Walmart.
Not only do Moa appear in Halo: Reach, there is also an in-game advertisement for the Moa Burger that those on Reach were able to enjoy. Furthermore, players who kill seven Moa in Halo: Reach’s Winter Contingency mission can earn the Keep It Clean achievement.
While the timing of this new flavor may be a little strange, its important to remember that Halo: Infinite would already have been released had it not been delayed past is Holiday 2020 release window.
A delay does more than just upset those who really wish to play a game, but it also impacts marketing schedules that are planned months or years in advance. We’ve already seen such other examples in the wild as Halo Infinite Monster Energy cans that give 2XP bonuses to a game that is still in development.
While these Pringles cans don’t appear to include any special codes, they may hint that Moa will be one of the many wildlife that players will be able to encounter in the open-world of Halo Infinite when it is released in Fall 2021.
