Halo: The Master Chief Collection Goes Gold

Hey there, Halo fans! 

The launch of Halo: The Master Chief Collection fast approaches as we get closer to November. In anticipation of this, it has officially gone gold.

This is a massive milestone for the game and also means that the game will be available for Pre-Order and Pre-Download later today. Fans can grab this game online so everyone can hit the ground running on release day! 

Due to the fans that expressed disappointment in Microsoft's original planned release date of November 11 in North America and November 14 in several other territories around the world. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be released on November 11 for the majority of our fans around world now.  

There are still a few countries that will see a slight delay due to public holidays. In Europe, Belgium will release on November 12 and France will release on November 14 as part of their typical Friday release schedule. Fans in Japan will see a release of November 13. 

To recap, Halo: The Master Chief Collection contains four complete Halo games, every multiplayer map ever released (including DLC from console and PC) across each game, a complete remaster of Halo 2 with all-new audio and Blur’s mind-blowing cinematics, and all of this is tied together with a revolutionary user interface.

The result of all this is that Halo: The Master Chief Collection will take up almost all of the usable space of a single Blu-ray (45 GB), and we will also issue a content update at launch that is estimated to be 20 GB. 

You’ll be able to start playing Campaign and more as the content is installing, with some features and multiplayer content being added via the update.
