Halo: The Master Chief Collection Crossplay Coming Later This Year

343 Industries, the developers of the Halo franchise, will soon support crossplay between PC and consoles. One of the biggest problems with first-person shooter games on consoles is the fact that they have aim assist enabled. Playing with a mouse and keyboard gives you a bigger advantage than playing on a controller as you are allowed to change vertical/horizontal sensitivity and set your personal DPI, which helps you aim more accurately. This obviously is unfair for console players. That said, 343 Industries will introduce mouse and keyboard support for Xbox, which will help equalize the playing field for both platforms. 

You can find 343 Industries’ plans for The Master Chief Collection in 2020 on their website:

  • Crossplay 
  • Input Based MM 
  • Sever Region Selection 
  • Custom Game Browser 
  • Per Game Graphics Options 
  • Per Game Audio Options 
  • M&K Support for Xbox 
  • PC Fileshare 
  • Double Keybinds for all games 
  • Viewmodel adjustments for all games 
  • In game FPS Cap/Adjustments 
  • Steam Account Linking 

343 Industries is almost finished porting all their games to PC. They only have Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4 left to launch for the Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Unfortunately, they won’t be launching Halo 5 on PC as it’s not part of the collection. To join any of the beta testing periods, you will have to sign up for the Halo Insider Program. 343 Industries have also worked on several other features that will improve the quality of Halo: Reach, such as: upgrading the network to asynchronous networking, dedicated servers, performance improvements across all platforms, uncapped frame rates, UI improvements and much more.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is available to purchase on Steam and the Microsoft store for both PC and Xbox One.

So, what are your thoughts on 343 Industries’ new crossplay between platforms? Do you think 343 Industries is going to ensure this new feature will be balanced?
