Halo: The Master Chief Collection possibly joining Xbox Game Pass soon [updated]

Xbox Game Pass costs $9.99 each month so be sure to check it out if you want a Netflix-style subscription for games. Today, Microsoft released a new trailer for the service which contains a rather welcome surprise. One of the titles which features the Xbox Game Pass "sticker" is Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Updated March 16, 2018: Xbox deleted the tweet which showed Halo: The Master Chief Collection as one of the Xbox Game Pass titles. However, Xbox Canada posted the video again.

Currently, only Halo 5: Guardians is available on Xbox Game Pass. Unless this is a mistake on the part of the marketing department, it could mean that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to the subscription soon. 343 Industries promised to upgrade the game for Xbox One X too.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection was quite a big deal when it came in 2014. For the first time ever, The Master Chief's entire story was available on one console. The game features a remastered Halo 2: Anniversary, along with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4. You can also purchase an Halo 3: ODST add-on for the title if you like. Many owners who bought the game during the launch period got it for free. If you love Halo, or love first-person shooters in general, this this is the definitive collection to own.

  • Yes, big Halo fan here can't wait to see this collection on X1X
  • Will those fixes be done by Bungie yet? If not, then no thanks. I love Halo but they need to improve it more to be playable.
  • Wow dude Bungie has nothing to do with Halo now. Master Chief Collection was done by 343 Industries who now manages the Halo franchise. In addition, while it isn't perfect, multiplayer was patched a long time ago to work reasonably well.
  • Xbox Game Pass needs some love for PC users. A lot of people got it for Sea of Thieves, but it could be a better value for PC users.
  • They will do it. But a think they first will fix the Microsoft Store before opening the store like that. The same reason MCC was not available in Game Pass.
