343 Industries has teased that there just might be a "new place and way to play" Halo: The Master Chief Collection in the near future.
343 revealed the news in its latest MCC Weekly Flighting and Development Update, and said that, while "things can change," it is trying to offer fans of this Halo collection a new way to play.
While many would love to see Halo: The Master Chief Collection come to Switch or PS5, this is most likely a hint that we may see this game arrive on the Epic Games Store or possibly Xbox's Cloud Gaming (beta) with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on iOS and PC.
The Master Chief Collection wouldn't be the first Microsoft-published game to make its way to the Epic Games Store, as State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition is currently available for purchase.
As for Cloud Gaming, Microsoft did confirm that Xbox's Cloud Gaming (beta) with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate would be coming to iOS devices and PC in Spring 2021, so the timing could work out, even if it would be a bit on the earlier side of Spring. MCC is already one of the games featured on Cloud Gaming for Android devices.
