More Halo games are being prepared for the PC release. While a majority of players are currently enjoying the first game in Halo: The Masterchief Collection for PC – Halo: Reach and numerous game levels – some are already waiting for the next game.  The next upcoming title will continue the original chronology – 343 announced a PC beta test for Halo: Combat Evolved.

The new beta test should begin this February, however, no exact date was given. According to 343, the test will be closed and will require an invite in order to participate in “PC-flighting”. If you want one, make sure your Halo Insider profile has all the required boxes ticked. The team hopes to test peer-to-peer connections, cross-play among Steam and Windows 10 dedicated server validation as well as new user interface and its customization.

If you’re not interested in testing and want to play the full game – this test might also mean something to you. If the previous test is any indication, the full game might be 5-6 months off. Halo: Reach entered its testing phase 6 months prior to the game’s launch on PC. However, 343 might pick up the pace if they have plans to release all Halo: The Master Chief Collection games for pc prior to the release of Halo Infinite which is scheduled for a debut later this year.
