Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC is reportedly “close to release”

Fans have wanted Halo: The Master Chief Collection to be on PC pretty much since it was announced and several rumors about the development of such a version have been circulating for almost as long. Now, from a more reliable source, there is a slightly more substantial report suggesting that the collection is hitting PC soon.

Brad Sams, a tech reporter with a notable track record of Microsoft leaks, says, “Microsoft’s open secret is that they’ve been working on the Master Chief Collection for the PC, and I’m hearing that that’s getting close to release.” Sams poses E3 as a likely site for an announcement, and even speculates that it could be launched during the show – although the latter two points are purely speculative again.

The proper takeaway is that the Master Chief Collection is very likely to be coming to the PC, and it is coming soon. It’s going to be a nice change to finally get the majority of the series on PC in modern form–the last release of the PC was Halo 2, and even that was marred by the old Windows Live scheme of Microsoft. Thankfully, the Halo Infinite release date will see the game launch on the same day for console and PC.

This comes via Sams’ video below, as noted by Nibel on Twitter.

Halo Infinite is set to be a “spiritual reboot” for the series, and we’ll see more of it – or at least its engine – at E3. Sams notes that Microsoft could’ve shown gameplay last year, but it apparently looks so good that the company decided it was better not to show it against current-gen titles.

It is increasingly likely that the main focus of Microsoft’s E3 will be on Game Pass and its cloud streaming plans, and the larger part of the above video is a plan to release a new, discless Xbox One at a low price point in May. Our digital, streaming future is rapidly rolling.
