But imma have to be that guy cause I really dont know why reach.
Well, a few big reasons (not to say these are better reasons than your wanting more H2A maps, because ... that would be fantastic. This is just me attempting to answer your question):

1. it was the most requested feature to be added to the MCC.

2. We will now have all the Halo games running at current gen standards (1080p/4k@60fps). I have been saying that it seemed kinda silly and a missed opportunity for Microsoft to be touting this Xbox One X around as the only console to play games in native 4K and not even have their own flagship franchise take advantage of the thing. "Play Every Halo Game in Native 4K on the Xbox One X!" is a pretty decent selling point.

3. I'm not entirely sure how long the 360 servers are going to be kept alive ... which ... well ... makes all that work bring those backwards compatible games to Xbox One and the Scarlet seem a little dumb if they're just going to kill them.

4. Certain Affinity developed the multiplayer for Halo 2 Anniversary. (In case you didn't know, Certain Affinity was founded by the creator of the original Halo 2 multiplayer and they've worked on the multiplayer for Halo 2, 3, Reach, 4, and Halo 2 Anniversary and haven't done any Halo since. They've worked on Call of Duty, Doom, and are currently developing their own game. I'm sure 343 themselves could whip up some maps, though I imagine that would require quite a bit more work than porting an existing game ... I mean, I assume all the people who are responsible for creating assets and environments are working on Infinite.)
I just want it here so I can beat it's LASO achievement already
Posting this on July 17th, 2019. I absolutely understand the delay and the causes and the reasons etc etc, just to be totally honest though, I really wanted to play Reach over the summer. But it looks clear the release won't happen anytime soon. In September, I'll have my hands full with gears 5 and Borderlands 3. Just personally bummed, that's all. :)
I just want it released when its ready! Yes i want the damn game now as its my second favorite campaign(behind h2) but with how busy i am and little i can play games, yeah I'd rather take a working game
My prediction which I am 100% sure is correct is sometime between now and 2552.
Wanna roll on 2534?

Same
I’d be willing to bet they’re shooting for a September 14th release date to honor the original release. If it’s at all possible, I’m sure they’ll postpone it longer if they feel it’s needed. And I have no doubt they’ll only give us a weeks notice of release, if that.
I just immediately assumed it was going to release during winter, like in December.
I agree it looks like it's holiday 2020 they want to release with the one scarlett

Halo Infinite will release Holiday 2020 with Scarlett, not MCC. Games within MCC will be released as an when they are ready
