Halo: The Master Chief Collection is currently available exclusively for the Xbox One, and it has been recently enhanced for the Xbox One X. According to a new rumor, Microsoft is also planning to release an Xbox One X version of the game.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection features almost every mainline Halo game save for Halo 5: Guardians and some of the other spin-offs. It was released for the Xbox One and then later enhanced with an update for the Xbox One X that also added support for 4K resolution among numerous other improvements.
Microsoft is quite open these days when it comes to bringing their games to the PC platform. They already have Xbox Game Pass subscription service that lets anyone play their latest games on a PC or Xbox One, and they are continuing to bring older games to the PC platform with Sunset Overdrive being the most recent example.
The next game that is coming to PC is Halo: The Master Chief Collection, according to Brad Sams, who is well known among the Xbox community due to his sources inside Microsoft.
In a new video, Brad Sams talked about the prospect of Xbox Game Pass coming to the Nintendo Switch but also dropped this small tidbit on the state of Halo: The Master Cheif Collection on PC.
Not sure if it’ll be an E3 release, but it could be announced at E3. It’s an open secret they’re working on the MCC for PC. I’m hearing that it’s getting close to release. Whether or not they do release it or do announce it is gonna be a little bit… umm… yeah.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC has been rumored in the past so this is not the first time a reference has been made for a potential PC version. The game is also available for Xbox Game Pass subscribers so those with an active subscription will be able to play it on their PC, provided this rumor turns out to be true.
