Halo: The Master Chief Collection testing could be delayed, according to an update posted yesterday on Halo Insider.

It was hoped that PC testing would begin this month, though at the time, Halo community director Brian Jarrard was keen to stress that this could change.

"I'm still optimistic this will be the case but it's also possible those plans may not fully land as we initially hoped." says Jarrard in yesterday's update. While the team is making good progress, he is understandably cautious about setting expectations for when testing will roll out.

It seems that Reach looks and plays great on the Xbox One but 'PC is considerably more complicated and requires a lot more work.' Internal playtests are happening though and while it's looking less likely that we'll see testing start in April, it hasn't been entirely ruled out either. You can check out the full—and detailed—update here.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection was confirmed for PC last month will include Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4. Each game will be released individually and in chronological order. Here's everything we know about it so far.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
