Halo: The Master Chief Collection has been played by more than 10 million players

Microsoft has announced that over 10 million players have played Halo: The Master Chief Collection since its release on Steam and Windows Store. Not only that, but the vast majority of them are brand new to the franchise.

As Microsoft stated:

“We launched Halo: The Master Chief Collection at the end of 2019 on the PC as part of Xbox Game Pass for PC; since then, over 10 million players have played it, with the vast majority of them being brand new to the franchise.”

Additionally, 343 Industries released a new patch for Halo: MCC. This patch adds a test-ready version of the Custom Game Browser to the collection. This feature will be enabled for a limited time to stress test the CGB and prepare for a full launch. For this test, only Halo: Reach will be playable.

In other news, Microsoft announced that starting on August 1 the developer share of Microsoft Store PC games sales net revenue will increase to 88%, from 70%. This is most likely in response to Epic’s 12% fee on its own store.
