Halo 5 will not be coming to PC, says Microsoft

Microsoft has confirmed that it currently has no plans to bring Halo 5: Guardians to PC.

Speaking to PC Gamer, a Microsoft spokesperson denied recent claims that the game is being ported to Windows 10.

“Our approach is to deliver epic Halo experiences designed for PC gamers and Windows 10, such as Halo Wars 2 and the recently announced Halo 5: Forge.”

Their next statement is arguably the final nail in the coffin for Halo fans eager to play the game again on PC:

“There are no plans to port Halo 5: Guardians to PC.”

This news comes as a bit of a surprise considering the recent launch of Halo 5: Guardians’ Forge mode on Windows 10.

The game is perfectly capable of running on a PC, but Microsoft appears to have no interest in expanding the franchise to different platforms.

It isn’t all bad for PC players though, as the company has a number of games in development for both Xbox One and Windows 10.

Some of these include Sea of Thieves, Recore and Halo Wars 2. Dead Rising 4 is also rumoured to be in development for both platforms.
