Microsoft admits Halo 5 isn’t coming to the PC

New, 27 comments

Halo 5: Guardians debuted on the Xbox One in October, and rumors of its port to the PC have persisted ever since. While Halo franchise director Frank O'Connor said "there is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC" back in October, it appears that Microsoft isn't planning to port the title to PC. "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," says a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to PC Gamer. "There are no plans to port Halo 5: Guardians to PC."

Many PC gamers had hoped Microsoft might announce the port at E3 next week, but it's clear the software maker will have other games to show off instead. Microsoft is also expected to unveil a "slim" version of its Xbox One console, launch new "Xbox TV" streaming devices, and detail its plans for future Xbox hardware upgrades. The Verge will be live from Microsoft's E3 press conference on Monday at 9:30AM PT / 12:30PM ET.
