Halo MCC On PC Will Get A Halo 2 Test Soon

343 Industries is working towards a Halo 2 test for the PC version of the Master Chief Collection--and it could hit soon.


Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been slowly launching on PC, one game at a time, with Halo: Reach and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary releasing so since the game first released. Now, with those games out, developer 343 Industries has its sights set on the next game in the collection--Halo 2 Anniversary, which first debuted within the collection.

In a recent update on Halo Waypoint, 343 Industries talks about their next planned "flight". Flights are their term for early-access betas, and the next one is set to include content from Halo 2. "We’re currently planning for our next flight to include content for Halo 2, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo: Reach’s Forge & Theater for PC, and potentially some Halo: Reach audio fixes," the post reads. "These fixes are still in progress, so currently they may or may not come in for our next series of flights."

If all goes as planned, the post says, we could see a flight of Halo 2 Anniversary on PC before the end of the month. "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," 343 says.

Halo 2 has been on PC before, but the original release of the game in 2007 (three years after the Xbox version) was exclusive to Windows Vista. It received a 7/10 in GameSpot's review at the time.

After Halo 2 Anniversary, the PC version of The Master Chief Collection is set to receive the other games available in the Xbox One version--Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4.
