The rumours were true about Halo: The Master Chief Collection coming to PC. First and foremost, Halo: Reach is coming to the collection after years of fans requesting the title. Second, the entire series is coming to PC through both the Microsoft Store and the Steam.
Brian Jarrad, the Community Director at 434 Industries calls the move an exciting opportunity and I couldn’t agree more with him. I agree that by doing this, the experience needs to not only be a first class experience on PC but also capable of working with the various PC builds.
The Master Chief’s arrival on PC will happen in stages with each title releasing one by one over time -– giving the development teams the ability to ensure each one is right, while giving players a chance to jump in right away, rather than having to wait for the entire suite of games to be completed. Our current plan is for this journey to begin with the launch of Halo: Reach – the fictional beginnings of Master Chief’s saga – with the rest of the titles following in chronological order thereafter. Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4 will each be available for individual purchase within MCC as they become available. And each game will evolve and grow over time with community input.
So there you have it. After years of wishing and waiting, 343 Industries is bringing on most famous collections to the PC community. And those who own the collection get a remastered version in stunning 4K/HDR on compatible hardware and plays better than ever at a silky smooth 60FPS.
There’s still more information on the way stay tuned to Halo Waypoint!
