Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s Full Lineup of Games May Hit PC This Year
Earlier this month, Microsoft finally announced Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC, although they way they plan to release the collection came as somewhat of a surprise. Instead of delivering all the games at once like on Xbox One, Microsoft will release them one at a time in chronological order, starting with newly-added Halo: Reach. So, how long will PC players have to wait to get their hands on the entire collection? Not too long, if you believe the latest leak.
The PC port of Halo: MCC is being developed by Ruffian Games (Crackdown 2) and Splash Damage (Gears of War 4 multiplayer), and in a recent newsletter, Splash Damage let slip that all that, following Halo: Reach, the rest of the MCC titles will be “scheduled throughout the year.” That would seem to indicate PC players will be getting Halo 1, 2, 3, and 4 before the end of 2019.
Now, as always, take this leak with a grain of salt. The Splash Damage newsletter appears to be legit, but it shouldn’t be treated as an official announcement. Perhaps Splash Damage will be done porting all the Halo: MCC games by the end of 2019, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Microsoft will opt to release all of them this year. We shall see.
For those who haven’t been keeping up, the PC version of Halo: MCC features a variety of upgrades tailored especially for that platform, including mouse and keyboard controls, FOV sliders, remappable keybindings, support for ultra-wide resolution monitors, and more. Of course, it will also include the usual array of visual enhancements, including 4K resolution, HDR, and 60fps.
No word yet on when the Halo: The Master Chief Collection PC releases will begin, but if Microsoft expects to get all the games out in 2019, they’ll have to get started soon!
