There have been many rumours that Microsoft is planning to make Halo 5: Guardians available on the PC, a break from the tradition of Xbox exclusivity which dates back to Halo 2 more than 10 years ago.
The last was when a listing on Xbox’s website was updated to indicate that Halo 5: Guardians was available on Xbox One and Windows 10. Then Halo franchise development director Frank O’Connor said in a thread on ResetEra that Halo 5 for PC is “not being worked on at this time.”
Now another clue has surfaced suggesting once again that Halo 5: Guardians may be a Play Anywhere title.
Of course, last time this rumour came around, with reference to the Windows 10 logo, Microsoft said:
“The Windows 10 logo on the Halo 5: Guardians product page is in reference to the existing Halo 5: Forge feature, which is available at no cost and includes custom multiplayer games and the Forge map editor.”
However where there is smoke there is often a fire, and there has been a lot of smoke around the availability of this iconic title on PC.
Is this a game our readers are holding out for on the PC? Let us know below.
Update: As before Microsoft has posted a denial, telling CNET in a statement:
“As we’ve shared previously, we do not have plans to launch Halo 5: Guardians on Windows 10 PC.”
