Halo: The Master Chief Collection Confirmed for PC, Halo: Reach Being Added to the Package
Halo: Reach is finally joining The Master Chief Collection as the saga finally heads to PC.
Last week, Microsoft said that it would have news to share during today’s episode of regarding the future of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Now, we know what that news is, and it’s probably what you could have guessed.
During today’s edition of Inside Xbox, it was confirmed that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will finally be heading to PC. This marks the first time that the entire Master Chief saga will be available on PC and finally gives players what they have been asking for for years now.
343 Industries says that bringing all of these titles to PC is a huge undertaking for the studio and is something that they want to do right. As such, they’ve enlisted the help of external studios Splash Damage and Ruffian to help bring MCC over to PC. Furthermore, it was also revealed that each title in The Master Chief Collection will be rolling out one by one on PC rather than all at once to ensure that each game has been given enough care before release. The PC version of The Master Chief Collection will be available for purchase through both the Microsoft Store and Steam.
Most importantly though (in my opinion), 343 also confirmed that Halo: Reach will be added to The Master Chief Collection as well. Reach’s addition finally brings all Halo games in history to a single platform for the first time ever. 343 said it will be splitting Reach up into two parts when it is added to MCC with the game’s multiplayer being made available for free while the Campaign and Firefight will be a separate purchase. If you are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber though, you’ll get all of Halo: Reach as part of the subscription on Xbox One.
Microsoft and 343 have yet to reveal when The Master Chief Collection will land on PC or when Reach will be added, but they promised that more information will be divulged down the road.
