Okay, now this is like waking up into a dream. Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC via the Microsoft Store and Steam. The release will happen in stages with each title arriving one at a time, with 343 Industries working hard to ensure that Halo on PC is a "first class" experience. Also, the collection is getting bigger with Halo: Reach being added too!
For those that need a reminder, Halo: Reach came out in 2010 for the Xbox 360 and was an origin story of sorts for series protagonist the Master Chief. As the first title, chronologically speaking, in the Halo saga Reach will mark the series long-awaited return to PC. In addition to supporting 4K/HDR and 60fps gameplay on Xbox One X hardware. And as a nice little bonus Xbox Game Pass subscribers will get Halo: Reach as part of their Master Chief Collection, err, collection.
This addition will in turn also set the tone for the PC release of each subsequent Halo title - Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and finally Halo 4.
Microsoft and 343 Industries are treating Halo's return to PC quite seriously, noting, "We’re embarking on a journey with our community to build a PC experience that delivers on PC gamer expectations. The team is passionately committed to ensuring that all of the features, bells, and whistles expected in a modern PC title are included with MCC." Having the series come to Steam in addition to the Microsoft Store definitely proves that.
We can't wait to see what these Halo titles look like on modern PC hardware.
