343 Industries and Microsoft announced that starting December 3rd, 2019, Halo: Reach – as part of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection – will launch on PC. The PC version of the game will contain the full Noble Team campaign, along with the online multiplayer support, and specs offering up 4K resolutions running at 60 frames per second.
Microsoft sent out word during this year’s X019 event to reveal that Halo: Reach would be the first of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection to arrive on Steam.
Over on the Steam community page, they revealed that following the release of Reach, you can look for the other games in the collection to release thereafter throughout 2020.
The announcement on the Steam page is kept short and sweet, stating…
“Halo: Reach is the first title to join Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC on Dec. 3, 2019 with Halo: CE Anniversary, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST Campaign, and Halo 4 to follow in 2020.”
They revealed back in June that they would be conducting insider flight testing leading up to the release, as well as that they would be investigating the possibility of split-screen support on the PC version of Halo: Reach but that it likely wouldn’t be ready in time for launch.
There were also rumors floating around inside of the Microsoft offices that Epic Games had attempted to purchase exclusivity rights for Halo: The Master Chief Collection to host on the Epic Games Store, but Microsoft reiterated that they would be launching the game collection first on the Windows Store and Steam and that they would be listening to feedback regarding any additional storefront releases.
In any case, you can look for the game to drop on PC starting next month. Pre-purchasing is also available right now over on the Steam store for $39.99.
