Over 6.6 million user-generated maps have been copied for Halo: The Master Chief Collection

What you need to know

  • Over 6.6 million user-generated maps from older versions of Halo have been copied for future access in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
  • Maps from Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo: Reach have been copied.
  • The maps are planned to be accessible when Halo: Reach releases on PC.

Over 6.6 million user-generated maps have been copied from Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo: Reach. These maps will be accessible on Halo: The Master Chief Collection, meaning that users won't lose access to their favorite maps when switching to a new platform.

Custom maps are a beloved feature of many Halo players and these maps being brought over is well-received on the Xbox One subreddit. The official Halo Twitter account broke the news about how many maps were copied.

Earlier this month, custom game types received a similar treatment. A Halowaypoint post states that game types and maps will be playable on both the Xbox One and PC versions of the Master Chief Collection.

Halo Reach on PC: Everything you need to know

The maps are not accessible yet, but the plan is that they will be available soon.

Since transferring game types and maps to Xbox One and PC requires work to the current version of MCC, our intention is that they will become available when Halo: Reach releases on both platforms (with Halo 3 and Halo 4 content on PC becoming available once those titles are released). As we get closer and have a better idea of when it should land, we will share an exact date.
