Halo is coming to PC. Can you believe it?
Halo: The Master Chief Collection — a package that includes Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4 — will be coming to PC for the first time. But there’s a catch: It’s not going to be released all at once.
Instead, the games will be released — and sold individually — in canonically chronological order, starting with Reach (which didn’t even appear in the original Xbox One version of The Master Chief Collection) and ending with 4.
It’s not clear when they’ll start to arrive, but you’ll be able to buy it either on Steam or from the Microsoft Store. It’s already up for pre-order on the latter, for $30.
The piecemeal release is meant to “[give] the development teams the ability to ensure each one is right,” Microsoft’s announcement reads. There’s also some kind of plan to “evolve and grow” each of the games with community input, though it’s not clear how extensive those post-release plans are.
Still, Halo on PC! That’s huge news for a good-sized group of people. Get hype.
