After over four years of exclusivity to Xbox One, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is finally making its way to PC. In addition, Halo: Reach will be added to the collection on both platforms.
During today’s Inside Xbox stream, 343 Industries’ Brian Jarrard took the stage to talk about this announcement while giving a few details about how it will be released. As these games will be incorporating features such as display options and mouse and keyboard controls, the entire collection will not be released at once. Instead, they’re looking to roll out each title starting with a title that has yet to be released in the collection on Xbox One, Halo: Reach.
This collection will also mark the debut of the core games on Steam, as the only Halo games currently available are the RTS titles. For players that already own the Master Chief Collection, they will receive the core Halo: Reach multiplayer content at no additional charge. However, the campaign and Firefight will be added at an additional cost. Gamepass subscribers will have access to the entire game immediately.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be released on PC at a later date starting with Halo: Reach. More information on the titles will be revealed at the SXSW 2019 invitational this weekend. For more information, visit the newly created Steam page.
