The software giant and creator of the Xbox video game console said Tuesday that the popular sci-fi shooting game will come via Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which rereleased numerous original games from the series on the Xbox in 2014. Not just Windows Store either, it'll also be on Steam!
"The Complete Master Chief Story - Honoring the iconic hero and his epic journey, the Master Chief's entire story is brought together as Halo: The Master Chief Collection". Because of this staggered release schedule, cross-play between PC and Xbox One does not appear to be in the cards, at least for the moment. Excited to play all of the glorious Halo titles on PC? The titles will be "available for individual purchase within MCC as they become available", Microsoft explained in its announcement today. Halo: Reach doesn't yet have a release date on either PC or console. Anyone who owns MCC will get the multiplayer content (including Forge and Theater) for free, but you'll have to pay for a "premium digital add-on" to get its central storyline and Firefight.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection Coming PC, Will Be on Steam
Instead of controlling Master Chief, Reach had players assume the role Nobel Six of "Noble Team" and is a tragic prequel of sorts to the Halo franchise. Xbox Gamepass subscribers will get the full remastered Reach package for free.
The Halo games were originally launched as Xbox exclusive titles starting with the first game, Halo: Combat Evolved, which arrived back in 2001. The company has yet to say how much each game will cost.
Unfortunately, it was not mentioned when we can expect to see Halo: The Master Chief Collection begin to make its way to PC, but at least we know it is indeed on its way. MLG has also shown an inkling of interest in Halo esports on PC.
