Anyone know roughly what size it's going to be? Going to stick it on to download when I get back from work and hoping not to have to wait hours!

From the description on Steam:
The Master Chief’s iconic journey includes six games, built for PC and collected in a single integrated experience where each game is delivered over time.
Halo Reach
Halo 1
Halo 2
Halo 3
Halo 4
Halo 5?

HALO 5 confirmed ;)

ODST didn't really cover Master Chief's journey did it?

I just wanna say this boys and girls because I think it bears repeating as launch approaches, this game has been glued to the top of the Steam sales charts for the better part of a month, and that isn't even factoring in the other platforms that already have an established base of players. This game is going to experience an immediate dogpile to get in to the servers on a scale that Steam + the Windows store have rarely seen before.

It is entirely feasible to believe the servers are going to melt down. Try and keep it civil and be mature about the realities of what these guys are facing. It will take a miracle of engineering to have matchmaking working properly in the first few hours.

Has 343 said anything about the pace at which the other games will be coming out? I'm not expecting it to be quick, in any case.

I'm so ready!



Halo has been my favorite video game franchise since CE released 18 years ago. Can't wait to play Reach on PC!

I mean if the argument is "Chief his journey" then ODST counts also. :)
But Halo 5 isnt part of the MCC collection. Is there a change wer get full Halo 5 on PC at some point. Maybe.
If it does come to PC it would be very silly to make it separate from the collection. Halo MCC should be like Halo Legacy. Halo Infinite and the games that come after should be seperate since they're brand new and actually developed with PC in mind.

Is there Xbox/PC crossplay? Is it enabled by default or do you need to opt in? Can you see who is on PC and who isn't during matchmaking?

Friendly reminder that not everyone will be replaying this game. There are plenty of people who have never played Reach before, or even a Halo game in general. I ain't one of them, but please be considerate and use spoiler tags :(

Honestly surprised they kept with the MCC branding - I would have just renamed it “Halo Ultimate Collection” to distance it from the launch and to reinforce the idea that it’s a platform for other Halo games to show up on

To be fair MCC is in an awesome condition since they released the big X Enhanced “2.0” rework update.
I don’t disagree that it’s not in bad shape now, I’m just surprised they stuck with the name when the overhaul came.




Halo 5 not coming to PC before Infinite seems weird, but honestly maybe it’s for the best. I absolutely want it there at some point, but it’s not so valuable to rush it before the end of the year, if even Halo 4 makes it.

Eventually they have to put Halo 5 on the collection aswell, even if I personally don't have much interest in it.. have they mentioned that happening at all?

Was on og Reach earlier and this happened lol

language warning

This takes me back...actually nostalgic.


No one these days will really ever experience MW2 or a toxic Halo lobby before a match. The shit talk, garbage mic quality, the amount of men that have been with your mother (and good game on top of that). Good times.


(CS and League can get close when it comes to toxicity but its honestly just not the same.)
