Halo: The Master Chief Collection might finally be coming to PC in time for this year’s E3 conference.
If you’re already an Xbox fan, then you probably already have The Master Chief Collection, which originally arrived for Xbox One way back in 2014. A compilation of the first four Halo games, including Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4, The Master Chief Collection is considered to be the definitive way to play Halo.
For the most part, The Master Chief Collection just gave everything a graphical update so it looked a little prettier on the Xbox One’s beefier hardware. Halo 2, considered perhaps the favorite of the series, got a little extra love in the form of a high-def redesign of both audio and visuals, as well as having its cutscenes updated and extended.
There were also all released multiplayer maps along with Halo 2 getting 6 completely remastered maps.
Anyway, it was a big deal at the time, but it was only available to Xbox owners. Now that Microsoft is finally seeing that there’s quite the market to milked on Windows PC, they’re bringing The Master Chief Collection to a personal computer near you.
According to Brad Sams of Windows Central, sources with Microsoft are saying that The Master Chief Collection will either be officially confirmed or actually released for PC at this year’s E3.
As for where you can get The Master Chief Collection, that we’re not 100% clear on. It will certainly be available at Microsoft’s store, but we’re not sure if it’ll be available on Steam or other, less reputable online digital retailers.
Also discussed in Brad’s video are the upcoming release of a diskless version of the Xbox One S (called the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition) as well as a special Fortnite edition of the Xbox One.
Yeah. Fortnite is big enough that Microsoft is selling Fortnite Xboxes.
Stay tuned at E3 for more Halo news.
