The PC port of The Master Chief Collection originally released in December 2019, but the “collection” only included Halo: Reach. Over the course of 2020, 343 Industries has slowly added other games into the collection.

The Master Chief Collection is available for PC for $39.99. You’ll also be able to purchase Halo 4 individually, but it is currently not up for order yet. Additionally, you can play it through an Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription.

November 17th also marks the same day that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be released for the Xbox Series X and S. Those who currently own the Halo anthology on console will also receive a free copy on Microsoft’s next-gen hardware.
