Halo 5 is not coming to PC

Microsoft has confirmed that Halo 5: Guardians is not in fact currently in development for PC.

The reason people are talking about Halo 5 now instead of the new Halo: Infinite is that the Microsoft store page for Halo 5: Guardians was updated with something curious.

For a chunk of time this week, the game’s main page showed the Windows 10 logo alongside the Xbox One logo, right below the ‘exclusively on’ line. This is definitely a recent change, which got fans all excited that Microsoft is gearing up for a PC version announcement.

The store page update was spotted by an eagle-eyed ResetERA forum member who also contacted Microsoft support for clarification. To their surprise, the rep confirmed that Halo 5 is a Play Anywhere title, which it isn’t.

Unfortunately, hopes and dreams were quickly deflated when Halo franchise development director Frank O’Connor popped in to confirm that, unfortunately, Halo 5 PC is not a thing.

“Sorry guys that’s an error,” said O’Connor, posting under the nickname Stinkles.

“It’s not impossible [Halo 5] could come to PC, but it’s not being worked on at this time. Black and white, no semantic trickery.”

We do know, however, that the upcoming Halo: Infinite will be coming to PC alongside Xbox One. A release date or even release window for that game were not announced, however.

The Halo 5 map creator, Forge, is available on the Windows store. It technically lets you play a version of Halo 5 multiplayer on PC, but only on user-created maps. It’s not a very good version of the game.

Well, I wouldnt get a Halo game on pc anyway ;) Id like to stick to xbox for that game just for the sake of nostalgia.


Hoping to actually pick this up! Hope it isn't ded


Mikey It shouldn't anyway, Halo is exclusive to Xbox, always has been and always should be.

yea except for halo 1 and halo 2 :thinking:


Damn this is a shame, it seems like Halo being an xbox exclusive would make it much better if it came to PC if only in windows store which i suspect it would be as i doubt they would put it on Steam
