Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC is reportedly "close to release"

Halo Infinite Master Chief Collection coming to PC, possibly via Game Pass
Katie Ramirez | 13 March, 2019, 04:20

Of course the progress of time has made the PC version of Halo a very easy game to run on modern hardware and thanks to modders, the original graphical effects have also been restored. Rather, it created internal studio 343 Industries to continue developing Halo games in-house, putting out the likes of Halo 4, Halo 5: Guardians and the more recent Halo Wars 2.

Ross confirmed that Halo Infinite is being built upon the new Slipspace Engine which made its debut alongside Infinite during E3 past year. "Because it is incredibly creative, it's just that we're not doing a good job of showing them what they can do with it". Ross emphasized the importance of the franchise within the studio and said that the team was hoping to recapture what makes Halo such a unique IP. "The team, rightfully so, called us on it".

Fans have wanted Halo: The Master Chief Collection to be on PC pretty much since it was announced, and various rumours about the development of such a version have been circulating for almost as long. "It's super hard for a lot of creatives to work in at one time". It certainly wasn't a bad game, eventually landing at a Metascore of 84. And, it could be that 343's struggles with the complexity of the current engine were to blame.

It seems unlikely that Microsoft will give a release date at E3 2019, especially if the rumours are true about the game releasing on their next console.

In an interview with CBS News' 60 Minutes, Microsoft's head of 343 Industries, Halo's Bonnie Ross, talked about the challenges of gender equality in the games industry and solutions to bring more women on board in development.
