The fan favourite entry will be added to the collection on July 14 and will mark the first time that the game has been playable on PC. It will join other entries in the collection which up until this point has consisted of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary and Halo: Reach.
Microsoft has also released a new trailer to mark the game’s launch on PC. Titled ‘Finish The Fight’, the title references the end of the original trilogy that Halo 3 wrapped up.
Watch the trailer below.
The Halo franchise is gearing to return after years without a new entry, with PC players recently receiving a steady stream of Halo content. Developer 343 Industries also recently announced that the popular Firefight mode from Halo 3: ODST would be arriving to The Master Chief Collection this summer.
Outside of the PC gaming market, console players also have a lot of new Halo content to be excited about. Xbox will be hosting a first-party games showcase for the upcoming Xbox Series X with Halo Infinite being one of the flagship titles the company intends to show at the event. A new teaser for the game was recently dropped and teased the return of an enemy known as ‘The Banished’, most commonly known from Halo Wars 2.
A 343 Industries job listing recently cropped up which seemed to suggest the company is hiring for a brand-new Halo project, as the description made applicants aware they would be working on a new instalment in the Halo universe.
