343 Industries' Community Director Brian Jarrard confirmed on a Reddit ask-me-anything (AMA) that Halo: The Master Chief Collection (MCC) on PC won't have mod support at launch, but that it may come after the full release.
Here's his full statement:
We are working closely with the members of the modding community (including some friends on the ElDewrito team) to explore our options for "official" mod support, but we won't have this at launch. Our #1 priority for launch is ensuring we get each of these core games "right" for PC and security/anti-cheat is a big focus. As we've stated, this entire offering will grow and evolve over time.
While this is disappointing news for modders who were hoping to mod the MCC on PC right away, it's good that 343 Industries is emphasizing security and stability first. It's fantastic news, though, that it's working with the modding community to bring mod support to the MCC in a fair and issue-free way.
Considering the "ElDewrito team" that Jarrard mentioned were responsible for reviving Halo Online earlier last year, players hoping for mod support can rest easy knowing that very talented community members are working with 343 Industries on this matter. The future looks very bright for the Halo modding scene, even if everyone has to wait longer than they were hoping.
