On the back of recent news of Halo Reach hitting PC on December 3, we now have some information on when the rest of the Halo MCC will see life on PC.

In speaking with PCGamesN, community director Brian Jarrard explained when we can expect Halo: Combat Evolved testing on PC,

“Once Reach comes out next month, after the holiday, we will start to reset, and we’ll start to flight Halo CE. We’re just going to keep going down the road until we fill out the rest of the collection.”

The challenge here taking a much older title and bringing it up to snuff for the expectations of a modern PC audience,

“We’re taking a game that’s very old, and we’re trying to update it for this platform – making it run at 60 fps, 4K – but also trying to account for all the requirements that PC gamers expect nowadays. That’s things like uncapped frame rates, an FOV slider, and support for different aspect ratios.”
