Writing in its company bog the outfit aims to get a “completely paired down” test build into partners’ hands by next week.
343 Industries’ Halo community manager Tyler Davis said his goal is to have the Halo 3 public flight kicked off in the first half of June.
Those hoping to try their paws at Halo 3 on PC, you’re first going to need to register for the Halo Insider program.
“Flighting” is Volish for beta testing ahead of the game’s release. The process is made up of a few stages, or “rings”, of test flights before the game eventually hits pubic test servers. The team is already underway with early stages of flighting in Ring 1, Davis adds.
Over the past year, 343 Industries has been trickling out its Master Chief Collection releases for PC, with everything from Halo Reach to Halo 2 taking no longer than a month after the conclusion of its public tests to launch. If that timeframe is anything to go by, we can expect Halo 3 to release in mid-July.
The Master Chief Collection for PC features 4K UHD resolution and HDR, and will be optimised for PC with mouse and keyboard support.
