For those of you out there that are still playing Halo: The Master Chief Collection, there is a milestone that you helped create. There is now over 6.6 million user-created maps supported on their servers.

The user-created maps were made for Halo 3, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4. The current plan is to have each accessible when Halo: Reach is added to the collection (TheSixthAxis).

Unfortunately, according to an official blog post from July on Halo Waypoint, while the maps themselves will be brought over, videos and screenshots will not. As hard as they worked on it, the 343 Industries team was unable to find a “workable solution” in that regard.

“After extensively exploring copying screenshots and videos, we were unable to find a workable solution to copy and migrate them to the new system – so unfortunately Screenshots, Film Clips, and Films will not be transferred to MCC during this process. On the plus side, we are still investigating a way bring screenshots to Halo Waypoint and make them viewable and downloadable.”

The good news is the maps will be accessible for PC users as well. A release date for the Halo: MCC games on PC hasn’t been announced, but Halo: Reach will be the first to drop. This will be followed by Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4.
