Halo: The Master Chief Collection bundles Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4 on a single disc, featuring remastered graphics and running at 60fps.

The Halo series comes to PC with six blockbuster games in a single integrated experience. Halo: The Master Chief Collection (MCC) will be available with Xbox Game Pass for PC and for individual sale in the Microsoft Store and on Steam. Whether you're a longtime fan or are meeting the Master Chief for the first time, Halo: The Master Chief Collection (MCC) is the definitive Halo gaming experience.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is being developed as a PC-native experience with an array of new features tailor-made for PC. Refined mouse and keyboard controls, remappable key bindings, text chat, support for multiple aspect ratios, customizable frame rate and FOV (to the extent feasible within each title), updated UI, and a new progression system are just some of the additions being designed for PC gamers.

The great Halo journey begins with Halo: Reach — the fictional beginnings of the Master Chief's saga — with the remaining titles following in chronological order of the story: Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4.

To ensure Halo: The Master Chief Collection delivers the best native PC experience possible, 343 Industries is inviting the community to sign up and participate in the Halo Insider Program, where fans can play and provide feedback on work-in-progress content within MCC before public release.

Each game in the collection will be released individually and will evolve and grow over time with community input.
