For the first time ever, the entire Halo Master Chief Collection will be coming to PC. Microsoft made the announcement that the Halo Master Chief Collection is coming to PC during its Inside Xbox show for the month of March. This marks a big milestone for the franchise, with 2004’s Halo 2 being the last title from the franchise to be available on PC.
The Halo Master Chief Collection includes Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, the Halo 3: ODST Campaign and Halo 4. The PC version of the Halo Master Chief Collection will be released in stages, with each game releasing chronologically (as listed above). Microsoft’s community director, Brian Jarrard noted that, as the games are released for PC, they will “evolve and grow over time with community input“.
We’re embarking on a journey with our community to build a PC experience that delivers on PC. 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.
There are a total of 67 campaign missions and more than 120 multiplayer maps (including the original Halo Combat Evolved maps) and Spartan Ops maps available in this Halo collection for PC. The experience has also been optimised for PC with mouse and keyboard support and up to 4K UHD and HDR support, running at 60fps. Other features for PC include FOV sliders, offline LAN, adjustable framerates, remappable keys, and more.
The Halo Master Chief Collection for PC will be available on the Microsoft Store and Steam. No details were revealed during the Inside Xbox show regarding the release date or pricing, with more details expected to be released from SXSW on 17 March 2019.
Halo Infinite, which was revealed at E3 2018, will be the next chapter in the popular franchise and will also be available for PC through the MCC.
