Halo 2 PC Flight Testing Will Begin Later This Month

Halo 2

Two down, four to go. The third game in the Master Chief Collection aka Halo 2 will begin its testing for PC later this month. The announcement was made via an official blog post. Developers at 343 Industries have confirmed that Halo 2, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo: Reach’s Forge, and the Theater will be coming in the next flight update (early access beta). The coming flight should also fix some audio issues in Halo: Reach.

“As a reminder, flighting is a way for us to get early access builds out to our Halo Insiders before they reach the public. Often things are rough around the edges and truly represent a work-in-progress. Building these games is a process and things can change. All of the content listed above may change and so may the timing, but if all goes well, we are targeting our next public flight for the end of March.” The official post read.

Developers also told fans to understand if their planned date changes. “If we remember back to earlier this year, we aimed to start flighting in January, but it ended up rolling into February when those kicked off," the post reads. "Please be patient as we want to get these out as quickly as possible, but in development: things happen.”

Your best chance to play the test flight (beta) of the game is to be a part of the Halo Insider Program. However, it still won’t guarantee that you will get to play the game. The PC version of Master Chief Collection only has two games launched right now, Halo: Reach and Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary. You can buy the MCC pack for $39.99, which will give you complete access to all the games in the collection when they launch. You could purchase each game separately for $10 per game. We recommend the complete collection.
