Halo Reach PC Release Date
As the 343i team provides updates or Halo leaks are released I’ll be sure to provide the latest info:
Ok, December 3rd has come and gone with the highly successful release of Halo Reach PC. This leaves everyone wondering, ok, what’s next? When can we expect the other titles we were promised?
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4. Lets not forget all this will eventually lead in to the highly anticipated Halo Infinite (Halo 6) release at the end of 2020.
Halo Combat Evolved PC Release Date
Halo Reach PC was originally announced that it would be joining the MCC and PC as well back in March of 2019. This means that development took around 9 months. What’s unique about Halo Reach was that it was not included in the Master Chief Collection which was available for XBox so although it was not a ground-up redesign it certainly was very labor intensive.
The only loose dates the 343i team has provided is that Halo Combat Evolved PC will release early 2020. Since it will not require the sale of work required for Halo Reach I’m predicting we should see this title sometime February 2020.
Update 27 Feb 2020: Flights 1 through 3 have completed. Although small issues remain, at this point it seems we’re getting very very close to a release date for Halo:CEA. I expect we’ll be on track for a release early March.
Update 20 Dec 2019: The team updated us officially that the game is in pre-alpha with the first flights starting in January. Additionally they listed features which are currently under testing:
- M&K Support
- FOV Support
- Aspect Ratio Support
- Customization: We are already integrating a 3d model with live color adjustments for H:CEA and are investigating what more can be done
- HUD Upres
- VFR Support
- Input Latency Reduction
- PC Optimizations
Halo 2: Anniversary PC Release Date
As of 20 December 2019 343i informed us that progress on Halo 2 Anniversary is not far behind Halo:CE. Under active testing so far:
- M&K Support
- FOV Support in progress
- Aspect Ratio Support in progress
- VFR Support in progress
Halo Master Chief Collection PC Release Dates
With the final date 343i provided us being the Halo Infinite release date of “holidays” 2020 many in the community, including myself, feel that the most sensible direction will be that each title will release every other month up until the grand finale: Halo Infinite PC.
This provides us with estimated release dates as follows:
|Halo Master Chief Collection PC Release Schedule||Date|
|Halo 2: Anniversary||May 2020|
|Halo 3||Jul 2020|
|Halo 3: ODST||Sep 2020|
|Halo 4||Nov 2020|
Halo Infinite PC Release Date
Although it’s not part of the Halo Master Chief Collection obviously this is the title we’re all freaking out over. The sheer anticipation leading up to this release is immense and it will almost certainly be one of the largest releases of the year (hopefully the largest over several years). As of right now we’re guessing a release of November 2020, just in time for the holidays. Check out our monster Halo Infinite post for all news regarding this title.
