Halo: The Master Chief Collection could arrive to PC in the future


Back in March, Xbox head Phil Spencer made some interesting comments about the PC gaming:

A renewed focus on Windows and PC gaming inside Microsoft is definitely happening. You will see more focus from us — not to go compete with what Valve has done, but because we also understand as the platform holder it’s important for us to invest in the platform in a real way.

Certainly interesting statements.

Only a few days before E3 2014, Spencer talked again about this:

Part of my Xbox role is to bring back our Windows gaming focus.

Now, 343’s Frank O’Connor told OXM two days ago that a port of Halo: The Master Chief Collection from Xbox One to PC is not impossible:

All the companies are taking PC gaming very seriously, so we’re no excluding the idea of ever doing a PC conversion, but it needs to be the right product at the right time.

Of course, O’ Connor is very cautious and quickly adds:

The PC market is very different to the console market.

You can’t take everything that comes out on console and vice versa.

Do you think Microsoft is going to release Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC in the future?

And what’s more important, Would you like to see Halo: The Master Chief Collection on your PC?

Halo: The Master Chief Collection for Xbox One will feature a re-mastered Halo 2: Anniversary, along with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4, new digital series, Halo: Nightfall, and access to the Halo 5: Guardians Beta. The games will run at 60FPS, 1080p.

The collection is scheduled for release on November 11, 2014.

    I definitely would like to see this come to PC.

    Jeff Gerstmann of Giant Bomb said that during E3 Judges week he saw a move mouse prompt in Master Chief Collection

  • Voodoo

    Jeff asked Phil Spencer about the presence of mouse controls in their daily E3 panel a couple nights back, and Phil basically shot that down saying it was nothing more than devkit stuff. In short his comment was that they are keen on bringing more of their first-party projects to the PC, but they are waiting for the right time to gauge interest and to find their new soft spot for digital PC releases.

    Love to see it but until the XB1 is bolstered up by many other exclusive IPs, MS will neglect PC gaming.
