Something players should be aware of, though, is that they won't have access to all of the titles in The Master Chief Collection just yet, as 343 Industries is still working on porting Halo 2, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4 to the PC platform. If you buy the full collection now, you'll automatically get access to the games as they become available, though. Plus, both Halo: Reach and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary are available to play in the collection right now.
I think it's really cool to see all of the Halo games go on sale, especially right now considering everyone is cooped up in quarantine. What do you think? Are you planning on getting any of these games? Let me know.
