Halo is synonymous
with Xbox, everyone knows that. The series is one of Microsoft’s hardest hitters
in their roster of console exclusives, meaning the company has been more than a
little hesitant to release it on other platforms. Ever since the release of Halo: Combat Evolved back in 2001, Sony
fans and Windows users alike have gazed at the series from afar with tear-filled
eyes, praying that one day, the Xbox staple may grace their systems.
Well, wipe your tears PC gamers, because Halo developer 343 industries has
announced that the entire Halo: The
Masterchief Collection will be coming to the Windows store as well as
Steam. My apologies to PS4 owners, I’m fairly certain that’s never going to
happen. You’re probably better off just sticking to Destiny.
While Halo: Combat
Evolved and Halo: 2 have been
available on PC and Mac since 2003 and 2007 respectively, the rest of the
series has yet to make its debut. According to 343 Industries, the collection
will be hitting digital marketplaces chronologically, with each title being
released individually as the studio builds up the collection.
Other than that, there hasn’t been much information about launch dates, so fans are going to have to sit tight while they wait for the re-release of their favourite franchise.
