In the space of just an hour, Microsoft made a series of big-time announcements, including Halo: The Master Chief Collection coming PC and adding Halo: Reach, the next big Xbox Game Pass game, a new Xbox One controller design/color, and more. You'll be able to buy, download, and play each Halo game on both the Microsoft Store and on Steam, which allows players to choose their preferred platform.

The news was announced via a post on the Xbox Wire, which included the news that Halo: Reach will also be joining the collection.

On PC, Reach will be the very first Halo title from Master Chief Collection to be released at some point "later this year". "Now updated with Xbox One X enhancements to provide up to 4K UHD and HDR support, this is the collection Halo fans have been waiting for!"

The PC release includes Steam on top of the Microsoft Store so there are options, and will include sequential releases over time, something Microsoft says will ensure they get the PC ports "right".

Here's everything you need to know about Halo MCC on PC. And each game will evolve and grow over time with community input. The company plans to release each of the games in a sequence, starting with Halo: Reach, a prequel to the series that originally appeared in 2010.

"The Complete Master Chief Story - Honoring the iconic hero and his epic journey, the Master Chief's entire story is brought together as Halo: The Master Chief Collection". Excited to play all of the glorious Halo titles on PC? This is something that the community has practically begged for, and Microsoft and 343 Industries granting them their wish should be commended.

First released for Xbox One in November 2014, Halo: The Master Chief Collection now includes Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4. Disappointingly, Halo: Reach's single-player campaign and Firefight horde mode will be offered as paid add-ons, with only multiplayer being free. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will have access to multiplayer without any additional purchases.
