Originally, ODST was released for Xbox 360 back in September of 2009 after the release of Halo 3 in 2007. Unlike the previous Halo titles, John who is the star of the previous titles is not going to lead in ODST. Instead, the players will have to control the regular human soldiers, the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs).

However, 343 Industries also revealed its plan to continue updating The Master Chief Collection. Most probably they will be adding cross-play, keyboard and mouse support on Xbox along with input-based matchmaking. However, the developer said that they are trying to add these features by the end of this year 2020.
Halo 4 is expected to be added to the Master Chief Collection on the PC by the end of this year.
The next Halo game, Halo Infinite still doesn’t have any release date. This game has currently been delayed to the next year in August.
ODST was always quite different from the other titles in the series. It had a noir-inspired soundtrack with a side-story campaign that avoids the usual galactic scale. This title includes the fan-favorite of Firefight, endless defend against the waves of AI co-op mode. Well, with the coming of ODST, all these features will also come to the Master Collection.
The Master Chief Collection will be bringing a number of improvements for the PC. The improvements are framerates, ultrawide support, and customizable key bindings.
Halo 3: ODST is playable on the Xbox 360. And the title will soon be playable on the Windows PC.
