The Halo Insider Program is now open for PC players

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is gearing up for its long-awaited debut on PC, but developer 343 Industries has indicated that it won't be a Play Anywhere title.

The announcement came during the latest "Inside Xbox" episode from Microsoft and it not only revealed the new platforms, but that another Halo title would be added to the bunch: Halo: Reach (also coming to the Xbox One version).

The company Microsoft and the studio 343 Industries have begun to share some details about the features of the PC version of Halo: to Master Master Chief of The Collection. "You will also be given exclusive opportunities to participate in public [releases] of in-progress Halo game releases and provide feedback to the development teams".

The MCC games will be releasing on an individual basis, beginning with Halo Reach and then Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4.

According to "ske7ch", the community director at Halo developer 343 Industries, "we are working closely with the members of the modding community (including some friends on the ElDewrito team) to explore our options for "official" mod support, but we won't have this at launch". When Halo Reach launched back in 2010, it expanded on the Halo sandbox mode Forge, which allowed players to build their own maps and in turn create their own custom game types.

It will be fascinating to see how Lyon coach Bruno Genesio sets up his team for the game, and how he instructs them to play. It was his first goal since he scored twice in the Copa del Rey win against Sevilla on January 30.

We have no doubt that MCC will be a major part of Game Pass when the service arrives on PC, which would give Microsoft a way to make money from the game without actually selling it, but only on the Windows Store platform. "Mid mission saves will be unique to each platform and can not be shared", the team explained. They will be released individually via Steam or the Microsoft Store for Windows 10.

Multiplayer servers: Just like on Xbox One, all games in the collection will use dedicated servers for matchmaking.

Finally, not only will there not be cross-play when the PC version of the game is released, there also won't be Xbox Play Anywhere.

Halo 5 coming to PC: "Our focus is bringing MCC and Reach to PC, there are no current plans to bring over Halo 5", the team said.
