Microsoft's is reportedly gearing up for a PC re-release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, its four-game compilation for the iconic first-person shooter series. Following its Xbox One debut back in 2014, a new video claims its PC debut lays close, potentially for an E3 2019 unveiling in June.

Discussing our latest exclusive on Microsoft's Xbox One S All-Digital Edition console, Brad Sams has provided reputable insight on the ambitious four-piece bundle. Claiming its PC version is "close to release," Sams states an E3 presence is being considered.

Updated March 6, 2019: Microsoft has posted a teaser for its upcoming Inside Xbox live show on March 12, 2019. Focused on Halo: The Master Chief Collection, its PC debut might be sooner than initially expected.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection's initial launch was marred by technical problems, with bugs and connectivity issues widespread. 343 Industries released a massive update in 2018, adding 4K support, HDR colors, and a new installation system. And with the studio still "evaluating" the addition of Halo: Reach, work on the project seemingly remains underway.

For a PC arrival, Halo: The Master Chief Collection should make its debut via the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. And with Halo Infinite, the next mainline entry headed to PC, it serves as an ideal chance to rebuild the series' following.

In the meantime, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is available for $30 via Amazon.
