Halo Reach Releasing On PC And Xbox One Today?


We’ve already reported about the first proper leak of the X019 event a few minutes ago, and it looks like there are a few more. It’s not like that the Inside Xbox coming at 9pm CET – European time – is only dropping the release date of Bleeding Edge, but more is on its way.

Among the other things, we learn that the Inside Xbox coming tonight is revealing a new launch date of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. You might argue we don’t need a Halo: The Master Chief Collection release date since the collection is already out there, but you’d be wrong.

The compilation is yet to drop Halo Reach on both Xbox One and PC, and it seems that the updated release date could be coming our way for that specific game. The good news is that the release date for Xbox One is fixed at today, November 14, 2019.

That’s what you’d call a “shadowdrop” when a game gets both an announcement (reveal or release date dropped) and a proper launch, and it seems that this is happening with Halo Reach, too. The date for PC has been updated for December 3, 2019, so it looks like players on that platform will have to wait a bit longer.

The port of the game has been in the making for a while now, with lots of tests (or flights, as they call them). It has faced some technical difficulties due to the ambitious scope of the project like they’re implementing Unreal Engine just for introducing a new progression system for the multiplayer.

X019 is airing later today, and it looks like you should not miss it at all.
