Developer 343 Industries has clarified a statement they released suggesting that Halo 5 could be possibly be getting a PC version.
Few days ago, the development team of Halo 5: Guardians suggested that there could be a chance that the game will be brought to Windows 10, as based on franchise director Frank O?Connor during a GamesRadar livestream, he noted: ?There is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC…Nothing to announce at this point, but it?s absolutely within the bounds of reason. We developed the game on an Intel platform. It wouldn?t be the hardest thing in the world to move it to PC and take advantage of PC stuff. But nothing to announce today.”
But later O?Connor explained that he is just giving the same ?noncommittal? response for a decade when players asked if the Halo franchise might come to the PC, his response over the rumors of the Halo 5 PC version is posted below:
Also Xbox Marketing Executive Aaron Greenberg has also addressed over the rumors, he said ?This is not true. Game is being made exclusively for Xbox One.” This was also confirmed again by O?Connor where he said that Greenberg also said that same thing he did.
This confirms that Halo 5: Guardians will not be having a PC release and 343 Industries is not even planning to bring it as well. The only Halo games that were available for the PC was Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2 and Halo: Spartan Assault and Halo: Spartan Strike. The other Halos games were only exclusive to the Xbox consoles. Only time will tell if there would be a PC version for the Halo 5 or any of the previous games.
Halo 5: Guardians will be available for the Xbox One on October 27, Microsoft will be having a livestream midnight launch to celebrate the upcoming release of the game.
