343 Industries has been working steadily to update Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and the company is “definitely thinking about” bringing the collection to Xbox Game Pass and PC.
The Master Chief Collection is undergoing a major series of updates, outlined by Halo community manager Brian Jarrard in the latest post to Halo Waypoint. Just a few weeks ago, the developer asked for fan feedback on what people wanted to see improved in the game. And, while it’s not at the top of the developer’s list of priorities, Jarrard promised that 343 has heard fans’ requests for PC compatibility and Xbox Game Pass “loud and clear.”
“We know [The Master Chief Collection on PC] is something many people have been asking and wanting for years now,” Jarrard wrote. “Currently our priority is updating and improving MCC for Xbox and there’s still plenty of work to be done on that front. While we have no official plans to announce at this time, we’ve heard you loud and clear.”
Jarrard added that, though there’s nothing definite for the team to announce yet, Xbox Game Pass is “something we’re definitely thinking about.”
Other top-requested features included the addition of a custom game browser to the collection, which Jarrard reports will be coming in a future update to the game. In addition to that, the update as a whole is “moving right along” and adding “visual enhancements, UI refresh concepts, flighting planning, and numerous networking improvements” in addition to fixing bugs and adding in fan-requested features.
So, while The Master Chief Collection probably won’t see a wider release in the near future, it’s definitely something that’s on the table.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is currently out now on the Xbox One.
