Despite The New Rumours, Halo 5 Isn’t Actually Coming To PC 

The Xbox exclusive Halo series is one that PC gamers have been clamouring for since the games first released and it was recently reported that Halo 5: Guardians might finally be making its way to PC. 

According to a recent report from ARS Technica a surprising change happened on the Amazon listing for Halo 5: Guardians, fuelling the belief that the game might soon be ported to the PC. 

The website notes that the image of Halo 5: Guardians on Amazon has changed its wording, now stating: “Xbox One Console Exclusive,” instead of its previous “Xbox One Exclusive.” 

The phrase “Xbox One Console Exclusive” has been used by Microsoft in the past for games including Quantum Break – an Xbox and PC exclusive title. 

It’s been a helluva long time since PC gamers were able to play a Halo title. The last official Halo PC release was from way back in 2007, when a Windows Vista port of Halo 2 became available. 

The Halo 2 port was courtesy of a Microsoft Game Studios team rather than Bungie. 

We already know that the upcoming Halo: Infinite will be available on PC so it doesn’t seem too much of a stretch to see its predecessor making the same move. 

However, CNET is now reporting that Microsoft has debunked the idea, as a spokesperson from the company reportedly stated: “As we’ve shared previously, we do not have plans to launch Halo 5: Guardians on Windows 10 PC.” 

As of right now the Amazon listing is still showing the new wording on the box art and no-one really knows why it’s changed. 

Hopefully Microsoft is just biding its time – we want Halo 5 on PC, please! 

As for Halo Infinite (aka Halo 6) the game was originally expected to have a late 2018 release but, with no recent announcements on the date, it’s now thought to be launching sometime in 2019.
