While many players were hoping for a PC release for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, it appears that the studio behind it had other plans. The Microsoft Store revealed that the game would be available on the Surface Hub.
For those who do not know, the Surface Hub is an interactive screen. It can’t be considered a gaming device, as the Hub is mostly used in classrooms and businesses. Therefore, it is a bit strange to discover that the game will be launched on the Hub.
In fact, some users believed that there must be some sort of mistake. Microsoft was contacted, but instead of confirming or denying the rumors, a Microsoft spokesperson declared that “We do not comment on rumors or speculation.”
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is still listed in the store, which means that there was no mistake.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection PC release
Many fans were hoping that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be released on the PC as well. In fact, if we take a look at the rumors that have appeared online, a PC release was speculated for a long time. More than that, Surface Hub also uses Windows 10, which made it evident that it shouldn’t be too complicated to launch the game on PCs as well.
Finally, the official announcement was made. Halo: Reach to the entire Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be added to PC. Users will be able to purchase the game on the Microsoft Store or the Valve’s Steam store.
The Master Chief Collection comes with Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), Halo 4, and Halo: Reach. The collection won’t be released at once, and the games will be launched in stages. The first one will be Halo: Reach, followed by Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4.
