Last month, Microsoft made the surprising announcement that it will be bringing the Halo: The Master Chief Collection to PC gamers, starting with Halo: Reach. Microsoft didn't specify when the titles would make their way to those playing on Windows, and recently said that the games will be "ready when they're ready", but it looks like public testing could start as soon as this month.
As reported by Windows Central, 343 Industries Community Director Brian Jarrard posted on Twitter that the initial flights for Halo: Reach are set to begin this month if all goes according to plan. Depending on your time zone, you'll see the tweet was made on April Fools' Day, but Jarrard made sure to confirm that it isn't a joke in a separate tweet.
To participate in the early flights for the upcoming Halo titles, you'll need to join the Halo Insider Program, which was launched shortly after the announcement that the Master Chief Collection would be making its way to PC gamers. Reach will be the first title to be available on PC, but the entire collection will be ported over time. Of course, Reach will also make its way to the Xbox One version of the Master Chief Collection.
Do note that plans can change, and even though Microsoft is targeting an April date for initial public testing, that may end up not being the case. Nonetheless, this should be good news for eager Halo fans.
