At the beginning of March PC gamers were able to get their hands on Halo: Combat Evolved shooter as a part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Steam. Now, the team from 343 Industries posted an update on the HaloWaypoint site to bring players up to speed with what is happening with the game, both PC & Xbox. The post goes into great detail about the feedback received by the developers and mentions that the team is currently working on an update for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo: Reach for previously discussed known issues.
As many have come to learn over the past several years with MCC, we are eager to continue working with the community in identifying ways we can improve our process. The entire studio is dedicated to having a player first mentality. We have a dedicated team that reviews them and shares issues directly with our developers. Part of this from our side involves regular updates to our KBAs on the Halo Support site.
The next project of the studio to come to PC is Halo 2 (and Halo 2: Anniversary). The developers also plan to test the content of Halo: Reach’s Forge & Theater for PC.
As a reminder, flighting is a way for us to get early access builds out to our Halo Insiders before they reach the public. Often things are rough around the edges and truly represent a work-in-progress. Building these games is a process and things can change. All of the content listed above may change and so may the timing, but if all goes well, we are targeting our next public flight for the end of March. If we remember back to earlier this year, we aimed to start flighting in January, but it ended up rolling into February when those kicked off. Please be patient as we want to get these out as quickly as possible, but in development: things happen.
