Master Chief is finally coming to PC when Halo: The Master Chief Collection debuts on PC later this year, starting with Halo: Reach.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection - a package that includes Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4 - will be coming to PC for the first time.

Tahir "Tashi" Hasandjekic, Microsoft's lead esports producer, wrote on Twitter that more information about Halo PC esports will be revealed at the Halo Championship Series at SXSW.

According to the Steam listing for the MCC you'll need an Xbox Live account; this is most likely so your profile is integrated into the Halo ecosystem that now exists on console.

The staggered release is meant to ensure that each title is "right" without forcing players to wait until the whole collection is ready, 343's Brian Jarrard said.

Reach, meanwhile, will be the first Halo game made available on PC, with the rest of the Halo catalogue patched in afterwards in chronological order. The titles will be "available for individual purchase within MCC as they become available", Microsoft explained in its announcement today.

We've known for a while that the upcoming Halo: Infinite is headed to PC, but today Microsoft and 343 Industries have announced that the remastered series up to Halo 4 is headed our way too.

Most importantly though (in my opinion), 343 also confirmed that Halo: Reach will be added to The Master Chief Collection as well. Everyone who has MCC on Xbox One will automatically get the game's multiplayer content, but the game's Firefight and campaign will be offered as a premium add-on.

While the collection will be available on Steam, it will also be part of the Microsoft store, so if you have Game Pass or already own a digital copy for Xbox, then you'll be able to download that version instead. The company has yet to say how much each game will cost. The less said about the non-event of Halo 5's multiplayer launch on PC (nobody even remembers it), the better.
