Halo Boss Talks Increasing Women's Roles in Game Development and Tech

Master Chief Collection coming to PC, possibly via Game Pass Halo the Master Chief Collection PC is Inbound, Tech Journalist Claims; Supposedly Getting Close to Release

According to 343 Industries studio head Bonnie Ross, Halo Infinite will be at the E3 2019 Xbox media briefing. Of course the progress of time has made the PC version of Halo a very easy game to run on modern hardware and thanks to modders, the original graphical effects have also been restored.

60 Minutes host Sharyn Alfonsi also asked Ross about what needs to be done to get more women into development and tech, with the games vet saying that computer science should become a compulsory subject.

Halo Infinite is the first main-series new game since 2015's fairly underwhelming Halo 5: Guardians, and we're all hoping that it's - pardon the flaming cliche - a return to form. It's super hard for creatives to work in.

If the official reveal for the PC port of Halo: The Master Chief Collection doesn't drop next Tuesday, chances are that it'll show up at this year's E3 instead. It certainly wasn't a bad game, eventually landing at a Metascore of 84. This new engine was built with that ambition in mind, to not only give fans newer, better-looking graphics and gameplay but to simultaneously set up 343 with an engine that could take the franchise in exciting new directions going forward.

Detroit Lions interested in linebacker C.J. Mosley
Rather, they're being proactive sweeping through the free agent market signing players entering their prime, not leaving it. Mosley has more guaranteed money in his deal than the total value of Bobby Wagner's last contract.

Therefore, no one should be shocked to find out that Microsoft is working on a new Halo game called Halo Infinite.

"I know we've talked quite a bit over time about what we want to deliver for the player on PC, but at E3 this year, and throughout 2019, you'll begin to see where we've been investing to deliver across Store, services, in Windows and in great games".
