Reach was originally due to kick off in beta form earlier this year, but 343 claims it will now start accepting public playtesters sometime in June.
Furthermore, it will showcase the demo shown in this video – featuring the single campaign mission, Tip of the Spear – at E3 2019 starting June 10.
In a newly-published blog post, the developer insisted the E3 demo hasn’t caused delays for the public beta, nor has it been held back for marketing purposes.
The Collection’s titles will be released on PC in stages and will include “all of the features, bells, and whistles expected in a modern PC title”.
Reach will be the first title released on PC, it said, with the rest of the games following in chronological order (Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4).
Each game will be available for individual purchase and will “evolve and grow over time with community input”.
