Tahir "Tashi" Hasandjekic, Microsoft's lead esports producer, wrote on Twitter that more information about Halo PC esports will be revealed at the Halo Championship Series at SXSW.

Pricing and release dates haven't been announced, but it's great (and a little surprising) that The Master Chief Collection will be on Steam as well as the Microsoft Store.

Unfortunately, however, you won't be able to play all the games included in the collection all at once: each will be updated for modern graphics and re-released in chronological order over an unspecified span, so it's unclear when owners will play the final game in the bundle, Halo 4. (In fact, it's already listed there.) Halo is a full-on Microsoft series, but not having to deal with that mess of a digital storefront makes the announcement more exciting.

Jarrard said today that Halo: MCC will be released on PC later this year, but didn't share an ETA. Instead, it's throwing all five games in the collection, along with Halo: Reach, over to Steam.

‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ Coming To Steam, Adding ‘Halo: Reach’

After more than a decade, the mainline Halo games are returning to PC.

"The Complete Master Chief Story - Honoring the iconic hero and his epic journey, the Master Chief's entire story is brought together as Halo: The Master Chief Collection".

The Halo games will be released slowly, one at a time.
In the meantime, 343 Industries plans on keeping the community in the loop about the upcoming collection via the developer's website.

Halo: Reach will also be added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection for the first time.

First released for Xbox One in November 2014, Halo: The Master Chief Collection now includes Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4. Everyone who has MCC on Xbox One will automatically get the game's multiplayer content, but the game's Firefight and campaign will be offered as a premium add-on. "Xbox Game Pass subscribers will have access to the entirety of Halo: Reach within MCC as part of their subscription".
