While there's still no date on it yet, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is PC-bound, including a planned Steam launch. On the official Halo site, Microsoft says the aim is for the PC version to be "first class". Reach's addition finally brings all Halo games in history to a single platform for the first time ever. Because of this staggered release schedule, cross-play between PC and Xbox One does not appear to be in the cards, at least for the moment. The announcement confirmed months of speculation and rumors about a Halo MCC PC release and will allow PC players a chance to experience the full breadth of the franchise in one package.

You can get a peek via the trailer above. The developer also cautioned that one game in the series may have different PC features than another. It's no surprise that Microsoft and 343 Industries are taking their time when you consider the poor state in which Halo: The Master Chief Collection shipped in back in 2014 and took several updates over almost four years to be playable, with the last major update clocking in at a colossal 73GB, clearly having no regard for the data caps or bandwidth limitations of its users.

Confirming earlier rumours and reports, Microsoft officially confirmed that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC. The company plans to release each of the games in a sequence, starting with Halo: Reach, a prequel to the series that originally appeared in 2010.

Klay Thompson Calls Out Warriors Fans in Loss to Suns 2
He's only missed one game all season, when he sat out the end of a back-to-back in Orlando two weeks ago for rest. No. 1 pick Deandre Ayton added 18 points and nine rebounds and forward Kelly Oubre added 22 points for the Suns.

While Reach probably isn't the top Halo game on many lists, the idea of eventually including every iteration in the Collection is an incredible idea. With the latter poaching indie games - and a few big names - left and right, I wouldn't blame a few Valve employees if they breathed a sigh of relief that Halo went to them.

First released for Xbox One in November 2014, Halo: The Master Chief Collection now includes Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4. Due to this, PC players haven't been able to finish the fight with Halo 3, continue the Master Chief's journey in Halo 4, and more. Additionally, Halo: Reach is also being added to the MCC on Xbox One, and will receive support for 4K HDR and 60 frames per second (FPS) gameplay.
