Now that Halo: Reach has kicked off the launch of Master Chief Collection for PC, what's next? A return to basics, apparently. The team at 343 Industries now expects to start public testing for the anniversary PC version of the original game, Halo: Combat Evolved, in January. It should incorporate "many" of the same upgrades that came to Reach, including visual touch-ups, support for modern displays (such as different aspect ratios) and player customization. This won't just be a straightforward Xbox conversion.

The developers also believe that Halo 2 is "not far" behind with similar upgrades, and has teased early work on adapting Halo 3.

There's still a lot of work left to do before the reworked Master Chief Collection is finished, but 343 is establishing a clear theme with its updates. It wants to offer a comprehensive remaster that includes many of the things Halo veterans are used to, including custom maps. For that matter, this could also make up for the Xbox MCC's messy release.
