If you want to get your hands on an official Halo release right now, we suggest checking out The Master Chief Collection. It's available for both Xbox One and PC. On Xbox One it includes all of the Halo games prior to Halo 5: Guardians aside from Halo: Reach, which you can buy as an add-on. For PC, the game includes Halo: Reach by default, but is also a little more expensive. In addition to that, not all of the games are out yet. Halo: Reach is out on PC, and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is coming next. From there, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 3, and Halo 4 are releasing in that order.

  • They need to release this to everyone ASAP because Reach is terrible. 90% of its player base has walked away, which you'd never know from reading this dudes coverage on Windows Central. Can we get Samuel to cover Halo news from now on?
  • Do you have evidence that 90% of the playerbase has walked away?
