Halo 2 Has Begun Public Testing for PC
PC players don't have to wait that much longer for Halo 2 to make its way over because public beta tests have officially begun.
Not too long ago we were celebrating the launch of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary making its way to PC. It won’t be too long before Halo 2: Anniversary makes its way to PC as well. 343 has begun hosting its first public PC beta tests just yesterday.
The community coordinator for Halo Tyler Davis shared the news over on Twitter. He stated that “all ring 3 blockers have been resolved.” This means that it is ready to go public.
PSA: All Ring 3 blockers have been resolved at this time for Halo 2 and Halo 2: Anniversary flighting to begin on Friday, 4/17. We will let folks know when buttons are being pressed for invites to roll out. Stay tuned to get tactical Marines!

Anyone can sign up for the Halo Insiders program which allows access to these public beta programs. Though, signing up will not guarantee access during the first public test. 343 figures out particular types of hardware and specific locations they would like to test on and then goes from there.
It is great to see the fantastic Halo series make its way over to PC. As of right now, PC players can play both Halo: Combat Evolved as well as Halo: Reach. When Reach first made its way over to Steam it was dominating the sales charts and was one of the top played games on the platform for a while. I would have to imagine that Halo 2, arguably the best multiplayer title in the franchise, would have the same effect.
