Master Chief is finally coming to PC when Halo: The Master Chief Collection debuts on PC later this year, starting with Halo: Reach.
Halo is coming to PC. It's still missing "Halo 5: Guardians", curiously, but that could potentially be added at a later date, at least players hope so.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection was originally released in late 2014 for the Xbox One, giving gamers access to Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo: Nightfall, and as of the PC launch, Halo: Reach.
As we speculated earlier this week, Microsoft plans to bring Halo: The Master Chief Collection to PC.
"We are laying the groundwork for PC native features such as excellent mouse and keyboard controls, support for multiple resolutions and aspect ratios, field-of-view sliders, and adjustable framerates, to name but a few".
It was also noted that the Master Chief collection will not be arriving all at once on PC, but instead will take a slower approach and debut in installments. According to the Steam listing for the MCC you'll need an Xbox Live account; this is most likely so your profile is integrated into the Halo ecosystem that now exists on console. This will be different on PC as Halo Reach will actually be the first game to be released on this platform, and the PC version will include all game content.
The Halo games will be released slowly, one at a time.If you own Xbox Game Pass, it'll all be included.
To help get everything polished up to spec, they've brought in a pair of extra studios, Ruffian and Splash Damage, to help with the adaptation. If you are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber though, you'll get all of Halo: Reach as part of the subscription on Xbox One.
