Halo fans got some bad news today concerning a coming major update to Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Previous updates brought in a new spate of content to the game collection, updating the rather spectacular Halo Reach and bringing it into the new generation as part of this bundle. The game is also eventually coming to PC, bringing the FPS titan to the platform for the first time in years. And it’s this PC launch that has been pushed according to the developer.
343 Industries originally planned to launch a beta phase for this update, and that beta was scheduled to occur sometime in April 2019. but things changed. According to a new tweet, Halo community director Brian Jarrard has revealed that the planned public test needed to be pushed back.
“I know excitement and anticipation is off the charts and everyone here inside the studio shares it as well,” he wrote in a Halo Insiders update. “But this is a really complicated project and we all agree that quality trumps everything else and we need to bring MCC to PC at the bar Halo fans and PC players expect and demand.”
No dates are planned as to when the public beta will happen, but fans are hopeful the new version of the title will drop before the end of 2019. We’ll just have to wait and see.
