Last week, Microsoft announced that Halo: The Master Chief Collection was coming to PC. Many assumed that the compilation would only be available through the Microsoft Store, but the company surprised everyone by revealing that it was also coming to Steam.
Despite increasing competition from Epic Games, Steam still remains the most popular platform when it comes to PC gaming so it's understandably why Microsoft wanted to put Halo: The Master Chief Collection there. There seems to be a lot of interest from PC gamers so this may translate into great sales.
Many gamers assumed that Steam played a major role in bringing the game to PC, but that doesn't appear to be the case. A fan emailed President of Valve Gabe Newell asking how easy it was working with Microsoft. To this, Newell replied, "The credit goes to Phil Spencer and his team at Microsoft. They made it happen, so yes, it was simple for us." The conversation was posted on Reddit earlier today. Keep in mind that this email may be an elaborate hoax as we were unable to verify its authenticity.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection will come to PC in waves to make sure it's done right. If you're interested in testing it out, there are ways to become an Insider and play early builds. Hopefully the final product will be polished when it's finally available in its entirely.
