343 Industries and Splash Damage share more details about the PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Splash Damage and 343 Industries have announced that the Flighting program for Halo: The Master Chief Collection PC has been delayed. While the teams targeted an April launch, the flighting program has been delayed and even though there isn’t any estimated date yet, we believe that it will go live later this month.

Furthermore, Splash Damage has revealed some additional new details about the PC version. According to the team, the PC version will feature robust action mapping options, great mouse/keyboard input across the entire game, low input latency by leveraging raw input and latency validation via slow motion cameras and support for a broad set of mouse and gameplay options.

Moreover, PC gamers can expect support for FOV sliders (to the extent each game can realistically support), updated UI controls, robust video and game options, text chat, as well as support for 4K resolutions, GSync/Freesync monitors and high refresh rates.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
