Halo community director Brian Jarrard has revealed some more details on the upcoming PC version of Halo: Reach.

During a Reddit AMA, Jarrard answered some fan questions about Halo: Reach as well as the larger Master Chief Collection PC releaseOne commenter asked Jarrard about the progression system in Halo Reach and whether the MCC version would retain the original's progression system. Jarrard replied that Reach on PC "will in fact have the same level of "mix and match" customization found in the original games", so players can earn and equip individual pieces of armor. In addition, Jarrard clarified that the team is looking into ways to modernize the progression system while retaining the feel of the original Halo: Reach. He was quick to assert that this would be "all based on in-game play, no type of monetization or anything of that nature".

Jarrard also touched on several other subjects pertaining to the Master Chief Collection in the AMA. All stats, achievements, Forged maps, and game variants from the Xbox One version of the Master Chief Collection will carry over to the PC version. 343 Industries is also looking at collaborating with the modding community to introduce official modding support for the Master Chief Collection, although he stressed that this feature won't be available at launch. Jarrard also revealed a number of technical details regarding the PC version of MCC including a range of supported aspect ratios, customizable FOV sliders, and an ambition to support uncapped frame rates for all games in the collection.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection will begin its staggered PC release with Halo: Reach, with the other Halo titles following at undisclosed dates. 343 Industries still isn't sure on a release date for Halo: Reach on PC, nor do we know individual game pricing or when the first beta will be available to fans.
