Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the Xbox One anthology that recently joined Xbox Game Pass could finally make its PC debut this year. Brad Sams, who recently reported about the new Xbox consoles launching in the near future mentioned a potential E3 announcement in a video yesterday (via Windows Central).
"I’m not sure if this exactly going toe be an E3 release, but this could be announced at E3. Microsoft’s open secret is that they’ve been working on the Master Chief collection for the PC, and I’m hearing that that is getting close to release,” Sams said in the video. You can listen to the segment below:
Halo: MCC received a major update last year that brought 4K graphics on Xbox One X, a rebuilt infrastructure for multiplayer matchmaking, and much more. The game is still getting monthly updates close to five years after its launch, and developer 343 Industries probably wouldn't do all that work if the game wasn't coming to Windows 10 PCs at some point.
Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 did get a PC release back in the day, but bringing the full Xbox One anthology to PC gamers would be a great way to expose these classic games to a much bigger audience. Since Halo: MCC is also now on Xbox Game Pass, it could also well push more PC gamers to subscribe.
