Halo: The Master Chief Collection Is Coming To PC

After many, many years of the whole Halo franchise being only available on Xbox consoles, Microsoft has announced The Master Chief Collection is being released onto PC.

It will be on the Microsoft store as well as on Steam.

In addition to the awesome news, the latest game in the series, Halo: Reach, will be added to the collection. Reach will join Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo 3: ODST.

We're now only missing Halo 5: Guardians, but only time will tell until that gets included in the Collection.

Community director Brian Jarrard said in a statement: "We're embarking on a journey with our community to build a PC experience that delivers on PC gamer expectations.

"The team is passionately committed to ensuring that all of the features, bells, and whistles expected in a modern PC title are included with MCC."

According to Variety, this version of The Master Chief Collection was made specifically for PC, meaning no nasty bugs (fingers crossed) are expected to pop up during gameplay.

To make sure everything runs smoothly, Microsoft will add each game one by one instead of all at once.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said during the company's first quarter update: "We are going to make sure that we keep increasing the strength of the community.

"You see that already with 'Minecraft' going to all platforms and that increasing the intensity of the community, and you'll see us do more of that."

There's mounting speculation that Microsoft and Nintendo are collaborating to bring more titles to the Switch - which would be incredible news if confirmed.

Xbox head of gaming Phil Spencer told Variety last year: "Gaming is now at its most vibrant. In this significant moment, we are constantly challenging ourselves about where we can take gaming next."
