‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ Coming To Steam, Adding ‘Halo: Reach’

At launch, The Master Chief Collection consisted of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4. They'll be releasing the collection one game at a time, so hopefully we'll be caught up by the time Infinite reaches PC shores.

Tahir "Tashi" Hasandjekic, Microsoft's lead esports producer, wrote on Twitter that more information about Halo PC esports will be revealed at the Halo Championship Series at SXSW. Microsoft declined to say when the games will launch on PCs, but the company did say it's planning to make the collection available on its Microsoft Store and Valve's popular Steam games store.

Last season, Beckham appeared in 12 games, recording 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns. The one exception was in 2017 when Beckham's missed most of the season with a fractured left ankle.

The biggest note is that the entirety of the Master Chief Collection won't be released all at once, but in stages. During the Inside Xbox announcement very PC-focused features were mentioned including rebuilt mouse and keyboard controls, custom keybindings and support for PC graphics options like ultrawide, different frame rate options and even adjustable field of view. The titles will be "available for individual purchase within MCC as they become available", Microsoft explained in its announcement today. Now here's hoping that they can bring Halo 5 to PC as well, so we can have the entire series. All the bells and whistles you expect to find on a modern PC title, those are the things we're going to deliver with Halo: "Master Chief Collection". There's simply no reason to own one outside Xbox 360 and original Xbox backwards compatibility. And as a bonus, those who bought the collection on Xbox One will get the remastered multiplayer content (including Forge and Theater) at no additional cost. Halo: Reach doesn't yet have a release date on either PC or console. With Microsoft reportedly planning on bringing its Netflix-like streaming service Project xCloud to Switch as well, it's all part of Spencer's vision for bringing the company's games for a wider audience.

Still, Halo on PC! Through the Xbox Play Anywhere program, several titles such as Quantum Break, Sea of Thieves, and Gears of War 4 have graced Windows 10 PCs via the Microsoft Store with varying degrees of success.
