Microsoft and 343 Industries announced during the latest episode of Inside Xbox that Halo: Reach is finally being added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Halo: Reach‘s multiplayer, which includes Forge and the Theater, will be available to all owners of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. While the game’s campaign and Firefight mode will be available separately “as a premium digital add-on.” However, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will have access to the entirety of Halo: Reach in Halo: The Master Chief Collection as part of their subscription.
It was also revealed that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be making the jump to PC via the Microsoft Store and Steam.
“For the team at 343 Industries, the most important and critical element of this project is ensuring that Halo: The Master Chief Collection delivers a true ‘first class’ experience on PC,” Brian Jarrard, community director at 343 Industries, wrote. “We’re embarking on a journey with our community to build a PC experience that delivers on PC gamer expectations. The team is passionately committed to ensuring that all of the features, bells, and whistles expected in a modern PC title are included with MCC.”
Instead of releasing the entire collection in one go, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be rolled out one game at a time on PC. Halo: Reach will be the first game offered to PC owners, with Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4 following.
Release dates for either the PC release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection or Halo: Reach were not announced.
