At the moment, the developer responsible for the saga has reiterated that it is not among its plans to add Halo 5: Guardians.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection completed the adaptation of all its titles to PC, an optimization that has served to add improvements and other features to the product.
All these developments have come to the console version. However, it was originally launched in 2014 (and with many problems), 343 Industries has continued updating, especially with the arrival of the patch for Xbox and Xbox Series X Series S.
In a new entry on Halo Waypoint, the official blog, the American company has confirmed that it is preparing more things for the compilation.
That 343 industry was not going to abandon the project because they had already assured previously, even though Halo 5: Guardians, the only title in the main saga that is missing, has not been included, nor is it among the study plans. Be that as it may, something is brewing within the developer:
“We have quite a bit of new content that we are looking forward to reaching your hands,” but before announcing anything concrete, they will wait to see how development progresses “in the coming weeks.”
They have not offered any specific details regarding the content itself, but they have anticipated that it may be “a new place” and “a new way of playing.”
We've got the latest edition of the MCC Dev & Fighting Update ready to go! Today, we've got intel on:
➡️ Because You Begged update
➡️ Black History Month Nameplate
➡️ H3 HCS events
➡️ Quitting, and you: A PSA
➡️ Info on upcoming flights

What did 343 say about Halo 5?
On the possibility that Halo 5: Guardians will arrive at some point in The Master Chief Collection, 343 Industries has stated that the fourth installment is the last that they have currently planned for the collection.
Maybe that “currently” does not close all the doors, but the team apologized and said that they were sorry “not to fulfill” the dream that the fifth chapter was present at the MCC.
343 Industries continues to work on Halo Infinite, the new installment for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. The title was scheduled to launch Microsoft’s next-gen consoles, but the studio announced that it would be delayed until 2021.
All content is already in the game, so they will focus on improving the experience. It should be noted that the multiplayer will follow the free-to-play model, so it will be accessible regardless of whether or not they have a copy of the product.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is a compilation with Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4 for Xbox One and PC by 343 Industries and Micorosft 1080p, 60 fps, and with dedicated servers for multiplayer modes. Honoring this iconic hero and his epic journey, the entire Master Chief story is now reunited in the Master Chief Collection.
