The release date for Halo 2 on PC has been finally confirmed, and we also know learned extra hints of when the Master Chief Collection update will be introduced on Steam.
Microsoft has officially announced that the following big Master Chief Collection update will be introduced very soon, alongside the release of Halo 2 on PC.
The official release date for the game is set for May 12, 2020, in the United States:
“As some of you may have heard earlier this week, Halo 2 (H2) and Halo 2: Anniversary (H2: A) is coming to PC players on May 12, at 8 pm PT (UTC-7).”
However, Microsoft acknowledged the current situation of the overcrowded network infrastructure and decided to launch the update later on.
However, that is bad news for UK gamers, who will be receiving the update on May 13.
Still, there’s a silver lining – the late release time means that the chance of overcrowded server issues is decreased.
About The Update
Microsoft confirmed that there would be plenty of bugs to fix post-launch, as new features go live.
The developer has also talked about a so-called “Thorage” update previously, which has been divided into separate smaller updates because Theater is ready for PC, but Forge isn’t.
“Great progress has been made on Forge, but we still have several supporting systems we are working through before this feature is complete.”
“As we get closer to completion and it is ready to make the Great Journey to PC, we will keep y’all in the loop. Now, let’s dive into what folks can expect next week.”
Microsoft announced that their test teams noticed an issue in Halo 2 that caused the reticule to go off-center when playing split-screen multiplayer.
“The team is working on a fix for this, and we will be targeting a hotfix build update for this in the coming weeks ahead,” Microsoft added.
