2007’s Halo 3 is regarded by many Halo fans to be among the very best Halo games, but to date it’s only ever been available on console. That’s changing very soon. 343 Industries has announced that Halo 3 will release on PC through The Master Chief Collection on July 14. The game will go live at 10 AM PT that day.
The announcement of the release date comes after 343 wrapped up a closed beta test for Halo 3 on PC, which is in keeping with the schedule of beta-testing each entry in the MCC before releasing them. You can check out a trailer for Halo 3’s PC release below.
Once released, Halo 3 will join Halo: Reach, Halo Combat Evolved, and Halo 2 in MCC on PC. Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4 will come later, completing the package. All of these games are already available on Xbox One through MCC.
The release of Halo 3 on PC on July 14 will also mark the start of MCC Season 2, which includes a series of updates to its battle pass-style progression system.
In other Halo news, 343 is finally going to reveal more of Halo Infinite during the Xbox 20/20 event on July 23. Fans have been waiting a long time, as Microsoft has so far only shown a teaser trailer–and no gameplay whatsoever–for the Xbox Series X launch title. The game will also be available on the regular Xbox One as well as PC.
