343 says they want to have the best version possible for PC which is the reason for the staggered launch.

Overall interest in the Halo series has been dropping since it has been several years since the latest release and the rise of the battle royale genre.

It wasn't that long ago that Halo was a powerhouse in the esports scene and that could be capitalized on with the release of the Master Chief Collection on PC.

 Tahir “Tashi” Hasandjekic, Microsoft's lead esports producer, wrote on Twitter that more information about Halo PC esports will be revealed at the Halo Championship Series at SXSW.

He warns not to expect major announcements but he does want the conversation to open. MLG has also shown an inkling of interest in Halo esports on PC.

With the move to PC, there will likely be many players jumping into the action whether that's new players or returning players who want to see what the game is like on PC.

Stay tuned for more information on this front in the future.
