It won’t be long now for players to finally get a hold of the Halo 2 PC version as 343 Industries have revealed that test phases will begin later this month.
Detailed on the recent Development and Flighting Update post, 343 Industries’ Tyler Davis confirmed that the flight test for Halo 2 PC version will start near the end of this month.
Many of you already know this, but Halo 2 and Halo 2: Anniversary are now on deck for the next release to PC. With that in mind, the team is heads down on creating the spec for the next series of PC flights. We’re currently planning for our next flight to include content for Halo 2, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo: Reach’s Forge & Theater for PC, and potentially some Halo: Reach audio fixes. These fixes are still in progress, so currently they may or may not come in for our next series of flights.
As a reminder, flighting is a way for us to get early access builds out to our Halo Insiders before they reach the public. Often things are rough around the edges and truly represent a work-in-progress. Building these games is a process and things can change. All of the content listed above may change and so may the timing, but if all goes well, we are targeting our next public flight for the end of March. If we remember back to earlier this year, we aimed to start flighting in January, but it ended up rolling into February when those kicked off. Please be patient as we want to get these out as quickly as possible, but in development: things happen.
Halo 2 will mark the third title from the Master Chief Collection, with Reach releasing last year and Halo: Combat Evolve just this month. We will most likely see the full release of Halo 2 for PC sometimes during the Summer season.
If you wish to participate in the flight test, be sure to be subscribed to the Halo Insider Program. Do note that being subscribed does not guarantee access to the flight tests.
