Despite rumours, Microsoft clarifies Halo 5 is not headed to PC

Master Chief sticking with Xbox for now

In a recent reaching-but-understandable bit of guesswork, fans have been musing over the possibility of Xbox One shooter Halo 5: Guardians being ported to the PC. This came about do to some updated Amazon box-art pictures that changed “Xbox One Exclusive” to “Xbox One Console Exclusive”.

Unfortunately, despite the hopes of said fans, Microsoft has released a statement clarifying that there are currently no plans to bring the epic sequel to the world of Mouse & Keyboard. “As we’ve shared previously, we do not have plans to launch Halo 5: Guardians on Windows 10 PC” said a Microsoft spokesperson to CNET, shattering hopes and dreams with a mere sentence.

Still, we do know that Halo: Infinite is coming to the PC platform, so at least there’s some light at the end of the tunnel. Now it’s just a case of waiting for the mighty MS to bless us with a release date. Anytime soon would be fine, guys…
