Halo: The Master Chief Collection originally launched on the Xbox One in 2015. The MCC contains many popular Halo games in a single package. Last year, the collection was also made available for the PC, has has been updated ever since to receive more and more PC-optimized Halo games. Recently, 343 Industries announced the beta testing for Halo 3: ODST for PC. Now, the game has been confirmed to become a part of The Master Chief Collection on PC.

While fans aren't sure whether or not Halo Infinite will meet their expectations, the original Halo games are, however, regarded as some of the best first-person shooters of all time. Originally when released, the Halo games were only exclusive to Xbox consoles, and since Microsoft decided to let go of the exclusivity model, The Master Chief Collection was also made available for PC players.

Halo 3: ODST originally launched on Xbox 360 in September 2009, two years after Halo 3's release. Unlike other Halo titles, the protagonist in Halo 3: ODST isn't John-117. Instead, players take control of regular human soldiers called Orbital Drop Shock Troopers, or ODST.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection contains six Halo games: Halo: Reach, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (releasing on September 22 for PC), and Halo 4 (expected to release by the end of the year for PC). All six games are already available to play on Xbox One.

Last month, 343 Industries announced that The Master Chief Collection will continue to get updated even after receiving all six games. The studio plans to add crossplay, keyboard and mouse input for Xbox, and input-based matchmaking. The developer also said that these features will be added before 2020 comes to a close.

Halo 3: ODST will release for PC as part of The Master Chief Collection on September 22.
