What you need to know
- Halo: The Master Chief Collection is a compilation of all the previous Halo games.

- The invitations will come through the Halo Waypoint website.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection includes all the Halo games before Halo 5: Guardians. While the title launched in a somewhat broken state when it came to multiplayer, the games remain stellar experiences even years later. It's no secret that the titles are coming to PC, and developer 343 Industries is making sure it polishes them up before launch.
If you're part of the Halo Insider program, then you should be getting a new build on Friday, April 17. 343 Industries said the following on Twitter. Keep in mind that the invites come through Halo Waypoint's website instead of notifications.

It seems like Halo 2 should be launching on PC soon. If you haven't played the updated versions, give them a go on Xbox One X. All of the titles run at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second.
