Halo Reach marked Bungie's farewell to the franchise that made them an industry force.Microsoft

Xbox boss Phil Spencer has teased that Halo: Reach, the last remaining Halo shooter not yet available on Xbox One, may well be heading to the console thanks to backwards compatibility. Or at least, he'd certainly like to see it happen.

Spencer made the comment in response to a fan who asked on Twitter whether he'd like to see the game on Xbox One either via backwards compatibility (BC), as DLC for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, or as its own standalone remake. In response Spencer specifically singled out BC.

Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4 were remade and remastered for Xbox One as part of 343 Industries' Master Chief Collection, released last year. Halo 3 spin-off ODST was released as DLC earlier this year.

Reach was Bungie's farewell to Halo, their last game for the series they created prior to development duties transferring to 343, who released Halo 4 in 2012 and follow that up with Halo 5: Guardians later this year.

Backwards Compatibility for Xbox One was announced at E3 earlier this year and will roll out in full this autumn with "over 100 games" available including many exclusives. If you go to the Xbox BC page on Microsoft's website Halo Reach is front and centre, indicating that the game will be available on the service.
