Halo: The Master Chief Collection Comes To PC And Steam

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Comes To PC And Steam

Halo 5: Guardians might come in the future, but for now there is no news on this coming to PC.

After more than a decade, the mainline Halo games are returning to PC.

"We are laying the groundwork for PC native features such as excellent mouse and keyboard controls, support for multiple resolutions and aspect ratios, field-of-view sliders, and adjustable framerates, to name but a few".

Microsoft and 343 have yet to reveal when The Master Chief Collection will land on PC or when Reach will be added, but they promised that more information will be divulged down the road.

Instead of bringing all of the Halo games into the PC ecosystem at once, 343 Industries and Microsoft are instead opting for a slower approach, in which each title is released one at a time - this is being done to ensure a stable launch for each title.

Lori Loughlin & Others Indicted In Alleged Ivy League Bribery Scheme
John Vandemoor, a former Stanford University sailing coach, is also scheduled to plead guilty to racketeering conspiracy charges . Prominent business owners along with actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are listed as defendants in the alleged scam.

Most importantly though (in my opinion), 343 also confirmed that Halo: Reach will be added to The Master Chief Collection as well.

This version of "Halo: The Master Chief Collection" was built "specifically for the PC audience", and will allow players to enjoy the first-person shooter on the platform, including campaign and multiplayer play. I sincerely hope Microsoft keeps up their efforts for game preservation: while folks joke that they don't have enough new games releasing on a consistent basis, I like that they're doing something different and backing backward compatibility so hard. If you own Xbox Game Pass, it'll all be included.

Each of the titles in the series will then follow in chronological order, from 2001's Halo: Combat Evolved to 2012's Halo 4. Beyond their initial launch, the games will "evolve and grow over time with community input", Microsoft said.

To help get everything polished up to spec, they've brought in a pair of extra studios, Ruffian and Splash Damage, to help with the adaptation.
