Back in 2015, Microsoft started talking about how Windows and Xbox Live would become more integrated. Ever since, we’ve seen the two come together to build one heck of a platform. Xbox Game Pass on PC. Modding coming to Xbox. And now, we’ve got a bevy of Halo games on Steam and the Windows store:
- Halo 2
- Halo 3
- Halo 3: ODST
- Halo 4
- Halo: Reach
Halo is a landmark series for bringing the feel of a PC first-person shooter to consoles. Microsoft has been a good shepherd of it as well: It hasn’t watered down the narratives, nor has it turned its players into an ATM. And we haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy a Halo shooter on PC since the second one hit Windows Vista (now, there’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time. A long time) in 2007.
