Xbox Game Pass already includes over 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games in its library, but a franchise that’s conspicuously underrepresented is the Halo series. Despite being one of Xbox’s flagship series, the only Halo titles currently included with Game Pass are Halo 5, Halo Wars Definitive Edition, Halo Wars 2, and Halo: Spartan Assault.
However, that might soon change, as an Xbox video promoting Game Pass might have accidentally leaked the upcoming addition of Halo: The Master Chief Collection to the subscription service.
A tweet posted by Xbox on April 14th included a video which showed bags of Xbox games being handed out through a drive-thru window. The bags included logos for games that were recently added to Game Pass—Super Lucky’s Tale, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Sea of Thieves—before a bag with the Master Chief Collection logo was shown. Xbox has since deleted the tweet, but not before fans noticed.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection launched with a slew of matchmaking problems back in 2014, leading to Microsoft offering refunds for digital copies. However, as recently as February 2018, developer 343 Industries was fishing for feedback from the Halo community about an update that is currently under development for The Master Chief Collection. More recently, 343 Industries acknowledged that bringing the The Master Chief Collection to Game Pass is “something we’re definitely thinking about.” It’s possible, maybe even likely, that the update will coincide with the introduction of the collection to Game Pass, given how many more players will be trying to log on to The Master Chief Collection‘s servers.
The Master Chief Collection includes Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 3 and Halo 4, as well as the campaign for Halo 3: ODST. If the collection came to Game Pass, the only Halo game to be missing from the library would be Halo: Reach.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is available on Xbox One.
