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.
