Halo fans can rejoice! Their biggest request to this date has been met in the latest Inside Xbox episode in which 343 Industries revealed a couple of very welcomed news. The biggest – Halo: The Master Chief Collection will launch for Windows PC later this year. For years Halo franchize was an exclusive deal for Xbox console players, but now PC players will get their turn to play one of the biggest Xbox titles throughout the history. However, not all games in the bundle will be released at once.
And that’s not all of the news that 343 Industries revealed. The company has announced that in the upcoming months The Master Chief Collection will have a new addition. To celebrate Halo launch on PC, the company has decided to drop Halo: Reach on PC first. While the game wasn’t a part of The Master Chief Collection before – it will be now. In the announcement, the company detailed that Halo: Reach will be followed by other franchize titles in chronological order. Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4. Each game will be available to purchase separately but if you want you’ll be able to purchase all of the games at once.
It’s worth mentioning that The Master Chief Collection’s debut on PC is a big deal for Halo franchize which was praised by the majority of Xbox fans. A lot of players from around the world will be able to try Halo games for the very first time which might extensively expand the audience of Master Chief fans. Only Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 were available for PC players in the past, so many players haven’t had the chance to play any of the latest games in the series up until now.
The bigger audience could also mean bigger sales for the upcoming new game in the series. As we’ve predicted earlier, Halo: Infinite announcement and release date might be coming very soon, so the announcement of The Master Chief Collection storming the PC front makes a lot of sense if looking at the big picture.
