Now that Halo: Reach has been unleashed on PC, next in line is Halo: CE, and work is well underway on the project. Today 343i dropped a new MCC PC dev update, outlining new features and tweaks coming to Reach while also teasing future games.

Right now Halo: CE is in a pre-alpha state across multiplayer and campaign. In its current iteration the game mirrors a lot of the performance targets of Reach, including 4K 60FPS with variable refresh rates as well as a unique progression system.

  • M&K Support
  • FOV Support
  • Aspect Ratio Support
  • Customization: We are already integrating a 3D model with live color adjustments for H:CEA and are investigating what more can be done
  • HUD Up-res
  • VFR Support
  • Input Latency Reduction
  • PC Optimizations

343i says all is going well and the Halo: CE flighting tests are still on schedule for January 2020. Sign up for the Halo Insider program here for a chance to be selected for beta testing. No release window was announced.
