The rumored Halo Master Chief Collection for PC is now almost complete and ready to be released soon according to Microsoft insider Brad Sams. Halo MCC is currently only available for Xbox One and 343 Industries arestill supporting the game.
Brad Sams from Thurrot is a credible source. In his latest video, he claimed that the game is ready to be released. He also speculates that an announcement at E3 2019 seems very reasonable.
Not sure if it’ll be an E3 release, but it could be announced at E3,” Sams said. “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.
If the rumors are true, the PC collection will release exactly 4 years after its arrival on Xbox One. In addition to Halo Infinite at E3 2019, It could be Microsoft’s and 343 Industries’ attempt to gain back fan interest which has decreased drastically in recent years. The Master Cheif Collection includes Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4.
This won’t come as a total surprise as 343i is very well aware of the game’s demand on PC. Phil Spencer has already confirmed that they have big PC related announcements to make at E3 2019.
I know we’ve talked quite a bit over time about what we want to deliver for the player on PC, but at E3 this year, and throughout 2019, you’ll begin to see where we’ve been investing to deliver across Store, services, in Windows and in great games. It’s just the beginning.
The arrival of MCC collection will also mark the completion of Halo series on PC except for Halo 5: Guardians.
Until then we have Halo Infinite to talk about which has been confirmed for a PC release. The latest entry in the Halo franchise is taking longer to arrive but it’s all due to the developer switching the game engines.
There’s no release date yet and the only trailer we saw of the game was at E3 2018 but it’s about to change soon. Studio head Bonnie Ross has promised that the new Slipspace engine will be showcased at E3 2019.
Do take it all with a grain of salt as Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been rumored to arrive on PC for years. If it happens, the developers will also have to bring Halo 5 to PC which is likely to not happen anytime soon due to their current focus towards Halo Infinite.
