Speculation on whether or not Halo 5: Guardians would be added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the compilation of first-person shooter games in the iconic Halo series was quelled on Tuesday when the latest official post from Halo Waypoint confirmed that Halo 4 for the PC would be the last game planned for Halo: MCC.
Per the Halo Waypoint website announcement:
“This is the last Halo title we currently have planned for the collection (sorry to crush your Halo 5 in MCC dreams), so let’s finish strong!”
It’s still unclear what exactly will be planned for Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the next-generation Xbox Series X and Xbox Series X consoles as the former draw closer and closer to their November 10th release date, but we can assume that backwards compatibility with markedly improved load times as with Doom Eternal, Destiny 2, Red Dead Redemption 2 and other popular titles as well as the ability to delete parts of the games to free up space will be available as soon as possible.
And obviously, 343 Industries is still hard at work Halo Infinite on the Xbox Series X|S. Although, Halo Infinite may have been delayed to an undisclosed release date at this time, the developers did reveal a new armor coating last week, the Halo Infinite Monarch armor coating.
What do you think of Halo 5: Guardians‘ exclusion from Halo: The Master Chief Collection? Do you think it should have been added? Sound off in the comments.
