Halo: MCC For PC News Coming This Week
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC, and it won't be long until we learn more about Microsoft's plans to release the compilation package on PC.
Developers from 343 Industries, including community director Brian Jarrard, design director Max Szlagor, and STE lead IK Grubb will appear on the 343 Social Stream on May 29 to provide an update on how the game is coming along.
The panelists will provide a "show-and-tell update on Halo: Reach and the journey to bring MCC on PC." The event begins at 1:30 PM PT, and you can watch the event live on Mixer.

In addition to the livestream, 343 is planning a massive blog post that will dive deep into "many topics," including Halo: Reach for Halo: MCC and MCC for PC in general. It will truly be a huge info dump, as 343 says the current draft is 22 pages and almost 6,000 words long.
Halo: MCC is coming to PC in stages, with each title in the package released and sold separately. This begins with Halo: Reach (which is also coming to Xbox One) and then continues on PC with Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4.
343 Industries originally planned to launch the first beta for Halo: Reach on PC in April, but it didn't happen. Presumably the stream tomorrow will provide more answers on when people might be able to begin playing Halo: MCC on PC. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
You can sign up for the free Halo Insider program for a chance to get into the beta tests. The tests will start small before expanding to additional users over time.
