Halo: Master Chief Collection (Halo: MCC) has finally launched on PC, and unsurprisingly, it’s doing rather well.
Yesterday we saw the release of Halo: Master Chief Collection on both the Windows Store and for the very first time for any Halo game on Steam. While Reach is currently the only playable Halo game, with the rest coming later, this didn’t slow down the title from reaching the top charts on Steam and even becoming one of the most played titles on the platform.
It has been receiving a large number of positive reviews since launch, and we ourselves have been enjoying the silky smooth performance of the PC version. It certainly is an excellent time for PC players as Halo has been absent from the platform since Halo 2 in 2007. For a little over a decade, the series had remained to be an Xbox exclusive title, delivering four new mainline experiences since Halo 2. It was only up until March of this year that Microsoft revealed that Halo: MCC would see it’s PC debut. And despite the game’s original poor launch on the Xbox in terms of performance, so far Reach has been for the most, a rock-solid experience.
Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4 will all be launching on Steam and Microsoft Windows sometimes within the next year, for now, PC players can enjoy Reach on either platform for the low price of $9.99, or the full set for $39.99. Of course, the title is also included in the Xbox Gamepass for PC, which also launched this year.
