Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to Steam, starting with Reach

‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ Coming To Steam, Adding ‘Halo: Reach’ 'Halo: The Master Chief Collection' heads to PC with 'Reach' included

All the bells and whistles you expect to find on a modern PC title, those are the things we're going to deliver with Halo: "Master Chief Collection".

The Master Chief's arrival on PC will happen in stages with each title releasing one by one over time - giving the development teams the ability to ensure each one is right, while giving players a chance to jump in right away, rather than having to wait for the entire suite of games to be completed.

Instead, the games will be released - and sold individually - in canonically chronological order, starting with Reach (which didn't even appear in the original Xbox One version of The Master Chief Collection) and ending with 4. Still, it is happening, and will include six games, 67 campaign missions and 120 multiplayer maps (including horde survival and Spartan Ops stuff) between them all. In addition, you'll be able to buy the MCC from two different places, and there's new, unexpected content coming as well. But it's not just coming to the Microsoft Store - Halo is coming to Steam, as well. If you are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber though, you'll get all of Halo: Reach as part of the subscription on Xbox One.

Fans will be pleased to know that every Halo shooter aside from Halo 5: Guardians is being brought to PC, including Halo: Reach, which is a fantastic surprise for players who enjoyed Bungie's last entry into the franchise.

The Jets, meanwhile, continued their free-agent spending frenzy by locking up Ravens linebacker CJ Mosley to a huge deal. Smith is the league's 19th-ranked edge performer according to Pro Football Focus (subscription required).

Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC will add Halo games chronologically as time goes on.

The freedom to choose between the Microsoft Store and Steam is wonderful. While the MCC used to have some issues, 343 have been patching it consistently since launch, and it sounds like the PC will have some extra icing on the cake.

For Halo 3 and Halo: Reach this will be the first time on PC while Halo 1 and 2 have found their way to PC in the past.
