Gabe Newell Credits Microsoft’s Phil Spencer and his Team for Bringing Halo MCC to PC;
Valve co-owner Gabe Newell has credited Xbox head Phil Spencer and his team for bringing Halo MCC to PC.
Last week, Microsoft and 343 Industries announced that the Halo Master Chief Collection is coming to both Windows 10 PC and Steam – quite the announcement for numerous PC players.
“Later this year, these classic Halo experiences will start to arrive on PC via the Microsoft Store and, for the first time in the series – on Steam”, developer 343 Industries wrote last week. “This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for us to bring the Halo Universe and Master Chief’s story to a new audience and to offer PC gamers a chance to step into the franchise on the PC platform of their choice.”
With the Halo Collection also arriving on Steam, one Halo fan decided to e-mail Newell about the process of getting the Collection on Steam and whether this was an easy task.
According to Newell, who seems to have replied to this question, all the credit goes to Microsoft’s executive vice-president of Gaming, Phil Spencer, and his team.
“The credit for this goes to Phil Spencer and his team at Microsoft”, Newell’s e-mail reads. “They made it happen, so, yes, it was simple for us.”
Earlier today we reported that the Master Chief Collection won’t support Xbox/PC crossplay and Microsoft’s Xbox Play Anywhere feature, but 343i hasn’t ruled out that crossplay with consoles will be added later.
