Except for any last minute changes, Halo: The Master Chief Collection could finally arrive on PC in April. Community official Brian Jarrard said on Twitter that the current plan, which could change, regarding the first beta tests should be implemented in April.

Jarrard made this announcement on April 1st, but it's not a joke as confirmed in a tweet.

The Master Chief Collection will arrive on PC in phases, starting from Halo: Reach (which is also coming out for Xbox One) and going chronologically from there with Halo: CE, Halo 2, Halo 3 and then Halo 4. The games will be published as a kind of beta, with the aim of testing each title with a limited group of people before launching it publicly. You can register for the Halo Insider program at the following link for the chance to try the games in advance.

This is for example what will happen with Halo: Reach, which will come both on PC and on Xbox One with an initial restricted phase.

On PC, each title within the Master Chief Collection will be sold individually, but the titles being tested are free. In addition, the games will be available on Steam.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection was released in November 2014 for Xbox One. after a long series of server-related problems, Microsoft has greatly improved the experience and today the title is stable and very populated.
