Halo: Reach is coming to Xbox One and PC on December 3, and many gamers wanted to know if it's going to be available for pre-load on Steam. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like that's the case because 343 Industries' Tyler Davis, better known as Postums, said that it wouldn't be. You'll just have to buy it and install it on that day.
