Yes, of course, the game is still in fourth place, just standing behind the dominating games PUBG, Dota 2 and CS: GO. In no time after its launch, Halo: Reach managed to attract over 100,000 concurrent players according to statistics from Steam. The number peaked at over 161,000, which is quite impressive.

At the moment, there are over 76,000 Halo fans playing the shooter, a number that is more than people playing popular games like Rainbow Six Siege, GTA V, or Destiny 2.

Halo: Reach, which launched in 2010, quickly became one of the biggest entertainment launches of the year. The same game, almost 10 years after, still seems to have plenty of mileage left in it.

Halo: Reach comes with updated graphics for modern gaming PCs. It has also been optimized to be played on several low-end PCs. If you have a pretty modern gaming PC, you can easily achieve 60 FPS at 4K resolution. Considering this statistic, the target audience for Halo: Reach is wide enough that many people do not mind giving the game a shot.

The game had a smooth and successful launch on Steam, and the PC port has been well-received among fans. As of now, there are no major glitches or bugs encountered in the game and by all accounts players are having an absolute blast.

The same is expected of the remaining five games of the Master Chief Collection that are to follow with their own releases on Steam.
