Today, we welcome players back to the ranks of Noble team as Halo: Reach officially joins Halo: The Master Chief Collection with Xbox Game Pass and for Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, and Steam. Since we announced Halo: Reach and the rest of Halo: The Master Chief Collection are coming to PC, we’ve been thrilled with the community response and collaboration, and are excited the game is now available to play in stunning 4K, over nine years after its original launch. Some of you have been closely involved in making this launch a reality and we hope to have your continued involvement with our Halo Insider program, helping to make this the best experience of Halo on PC!
