Halo: Master Chief Collection has been a huge hit on the PC. The collection was originally released in 2014 for the Xbox One, which unfortunately did not gain a good reception among fans. However, since then the game has been improved significantly. Fans looking to buy the upcoming Xbox Series X/S consoles will be pleased to know that Microsoft recently announced that Halo: Master Chief Collection will be upgraded to run at 120 FPS on the upcoming consoles. This goes both for the single-player and multiplayer aspects of the game.

Halo: Master Chief Collection on Xbox Series X/S will also see improvements to the split-screen feature and the game itself will support up to 4K resolution on the Xbox Series X.

The upgrade will become available starting on November 17. Those who already own a copy of Master Chief Collection will be eligible for a free next-gen upgrade copy. Additionally, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will also gain access to the upgraded version of Halo. While Halo fans have been waiting for Halo Infinite, which has been delayed into the next year, it's nice to see that the previous Halo games will be receiving some kind of visual treatment, which should make the games look impressive on the next-gen hardware.

Halo: Master Chief Collection includes Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo Reach, and Halo 4. The collection was also ported to the PC last year. As of now, the collection on the PC includes all previous Halo games except for Halo 4. Halo 4 was supposed to enter the beta phase this month, but the game's release was delayed due to a "blocker." issue. The issue has since then seemed to have resolved and the game should be getting a new release date pretty soon.

Halo: Master Chief Collection is available on PC and Xbox One. The collection will also release for the Xbox Series X/S on November 17.
