Halo: Master Chief Collection announced, coming to Xbox One November 11

Microsoft has just announced the Halo: Master Chief Collection for the Xbox One at E3 2014, a collection containing all four Master Chief-centric Halo titles. All four games will be presented through a unified interface for a seamless Halo experience.

The games will be updated with modern graphics, including the Halo 2 Anniversary edition, complete with the multiplayer it shipped with ten years ago. All four games will ship on a single disc, and the multiplayer modes will feature over 100 maps, running at 1080p at 60 frames per second. Everything in all multiplayer modes comes with the game unlocked. The collection comes with a total 4,000 potential gammerscore. If you want, you will be able to switch inbetween new and classic graphics.

The collection also comes with Halo: Nightfall, a live-action series from Ridley Scott that leads up to Halo 5: Guardians. Speaking of Halo 5, the multiplayer for that game will be available this holiday for gamers that purchase the Master Chief Collection.

The Halo: Master Chief collection will be available on November 11, 2014. Keep your eyes on our Microsoft media briefing live blog for the latest Xbox news.

If they ever release it for PC, I (besides lots of others) would be happiest guy ever!!!

PeterFnet says:

Ditto. I miss the days of Halo on PC!

John20212 says:

It's typical Microsoft, release the first 2 Halo games on PC and then abandon the PC community.


Dradzk says:

Never played more than the occasional pvp halo on various friends' consuls. If this came out for pc I might have to give it a shot.

And they've been doing a pretty awful job with new content on PC ever since. The change I hope comes with the new rereleases of AoE, AoM and RoN. But we've yet to see proof of that. Still the first step in a return of Halo to PC has been taken, porting to the x86/x64 architecture.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Not to poop the informative party over there on the west coast, but a shady track record forces skepticism to ask the question...

Do each of those Ds stand for DLC tokens needed to unlock the 100 maps on the disc?

AndyCalling says:

Wow! Halo Master Chef? I never expected that! I wonder if it'll change how Master Chef is done on the TV as well?

Ed Boland says:

You talking about that cooking show?

David P2 says:

Hey that would be good... Red vs Blue: Master Chef Edition.

DeathByPlant says:

I just hope they still have super jumps in Halo 2!

ebradley says:

I might be able to double my gamerscore.

jlzimmerman says:

I wasn't interested until the news about Multiplayer.  Awesome!  I want.

mango.lover says:

What is "gammerscore"? o_0

Zuka_WPC says:

It's what they use to rate gamma rays in the south

louisoneal says:

Damn, that's pretty cool.

Now I need this aswell as a Surface Pro 3...

John20212 says:

Screw them if they are not going to release it on PC as well.


I am very disappointed that they did not reveal anything of halo 5 campaign

Duffau says:

Why would they? They showed more than I expected seeing as how the game is still 1.5 years away

penetronn says:

Time to sell my still in shrink wrap versions of halo anniversary and halo 4

mab664 says:

Who cares? Where was the halo 5 gameplay footage?

neonspark says:

at nearly one and a half years out into the future, there wouldn't be much point to showing such work in progress and give XB1 haters the ammunition to look for signs of 720p.

neonspark says:

Fantastic news. I'm so looking forward to playing halo 2 in 1080p 60fps.

vakama94 says:

The day of my birthday. Something tells me I need to buy a Xbox One

IzaacJ says:

An Xbox one and this will be fckn amazing! Hopefully I can get an Xbox one for my birthday in a little more than 2 weeks :D

scardboy says:

Fck Yeah!!!!! Words cannot describe my happiness. HALO is my absolute favorite gaming franchise of any game I have ever played. Nov cannot get here soon enough.

Black Lumia says:

Mooncow27 says:

I hated h2. Made me feel sick. Must have been the gaming engine.

LadyRocki says:

THIS is what I've been waiting for before getting an Xbox One. Then my husband saw the Battlefield Hardline trailer and finally threw his lot in to buy an Xbox One. Yay!

Duffau says:

My dream of playing halo 1 over live with the original engine will finally come true. Makes me remember the days of Xbox connect :tear:

Rug says:

You could do this on the 360, no?

Rug says:

I love this! Halo 2 was one of my favorites! It would be cool if multiplayer could span all the maps at once.
