Halo Reach PC Beta Begins This Month In ‘Master Chief Collection’
Save for one particular entry, the Halo series’ most prominent titles are set to get their due on PC later this year in the form of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Though this alone would seem to be cause for praise, the topper is its updated inclusion of Halo Reach, a game fans have clamored to be added since the collection’s initial debut for Xbox One.
Now that the Xbox 360 prequel is headed to PC alongside the many other Master Chief adventures, fans have speculated when they might first get their hands on this new iteration of the title. According to a Twitter post from Halo Community Manager Brian “Ske7ch” Jarrard, the time players will get their first shot at Reach won’t be much of a wait; a round of beta testing planned to occur sometime this month.
Happy April! If all goes according to plan, this is the month we start the first Reach/MCC flights. ✈️ 🤞

It’s currently unknown when exactly these “flights” will eventually land, or when Halo Reach could see a proper launch, but the entire collection is expected to be fully rolled on both Steam and the Windows Store by the end of 2019. These closed betas, whenever they take place, are currently available for sign-up via the Halo Insider program.
Developers 343 Industries has a unique release method in mind for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, with each game being introduced through a series of gradual updates. The team opting to release each title using in-game chronological order, it’s not difficult to see why, as it would place the immensely-anticipated Halo Reach at the tippy-top of the pile.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is out now for Xbox One.
