"Please Don't Send Any More Pizzas," Halo Dev Says
There is such a thing as too much pizza.
Halo developer 343 Industries made some big Halo announcements today, and excited fans responded by sending pizza to the studio. Now, the developer has pleaded with fans to please stop sending pizza. Community manager Brian Jarrard wrote on Twitter that he and the studio are appreciative, but it's just too much pizza.
"The Halo community is awesome. We're excited, too! Please don't send any more pizzas to 343 Industries," Jarrard said. "The building receptionist isn't here, so it's getting logistically challenging and we really don't want to see food go to waste."

Why the pizza? Before all the big Halo reveals today, Jarrard tweeted the pizza emoji for some reason, and now people are running with it and flooding 343's offices with pizza.
Here is a visual rundown of some of the pizzas that 343 received today:
