[Original story] From the looks of it, Halo 2 PC might very well be released tomorrow as Microsoft appears to have been teasing its launch.

Some days ago we wrote that Halo 2 and Halo 2: Anniversary are soon to be released on PC, and it appears that the titles are releasing through Steam and Xbox Game Pass tomorrow.

Taking to Twitter to reply to a Halo question from famous streamer Ninja, Microsoft’s official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account replied that he should set is alarm for tomorrow morning, strongly hinting at a release of Halo 2 PC release.

We wouldn’t know what else Microsoft could be teasing related to Halo at this point. Of course, as nothing is official just yet, keep your hopes in check. Public testing for Halo 2 on PC for insiders kicked off last month.

Halo 2 and Halo 2: Anniversary are part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection coming to PC. Last, developer 343 Industries released Halo: Reach as part of the collection (also for Xbox), and back in March of this year, the studio released Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary on PC.
