Halo: Reach comes to Steam December 3 for $10

Microsoft kept their promise, and Halo: Reach will release in 2019 after all

The reports were right on the money, and Halo: Reach will release on December 3, 2019 on PC, including the Windows Store and Steam.

Today Microsoft confirmed Halo: Reach will arrive on PC as a full package this December, complete with Firefight, campaign, multiplayer, and huge PC optimizations like uncapped frame rates, 4K 60FPS support, and full mouse and keyboard support. We'll see playlists borrowed from the original 2010 launch including Firefight's online Score Attack mode as well as the classics like Team Slayer. It'll also have online co-op campaign too.

Reach is included with the $40 Master Chief Collection, but you can buy it separately on Steam for $10. The full Master Chief Collection obviously won't be available if you pre-order the complete package--only Reach will drop in December.

Halo: Reach will also be playable day and date on Xbox Game Pass for PC.

"Halo Reach is coming to PC and Xbox on December 3. You'll be able able to pick up all of MCC on Xbox Game Pass on Xbox and on PC as well. In addition, we're now live with pre-orders on Microsoft Store and Steam for the first time," said 343i's Brian Jarrard

"We've been working on this project for a long time, the world's waited a long time for Halo to come to PC for real now. We're excited and we couldn't have done it without our community or our teams."

"December 3 is just the first step. We're just getting started and we have a long way to go on this journey, but we're bringing all of MCC to PC starting with Halo: Reach."
