Halo 5: Guardians Will not be Coming to PC

Frank O'Conner and Microsoft clarify that there will not be a Halo 5: Guardians Release on PC.

Frank O'Connor, director of the Halo franchise, recently clarified comments about Halo 5: Guardians coming to the PC. According to O'Connor, there are no plans for a PC release at this time.

O'Connor stated in an interview that, "bringing Halo 5 to PC wouldn't be the toughest thing to do, there is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC."

This quote  caused a lot of fans to wonder if Halo 5: Guardians will be coming to the PC.

O'Connor later clarified the issue with a tweet. 


Microsoft marketing executive Aaron Greenberg, also made a remark about how any claims that there will be a PC version release on October 27 are also false.   

However, this does not mean that there is no chance of a PC release in the future. There are many Xbox One exclusive games that have made their way to PC, such as Dead Rising 3. So, we may see a PC version of Halo 5: Guardians. Yet, at this time it has been made clear that Halo 5: Guardians will remain as an Xbox One Exclusive. 

Halo 5: Guardians is set for release on October 27.

    I stopped getting my hopes up about 10 years ago :P

    They'll never release on PC. That would mean competing with far superior shooter titles and removing one of the only reasons to even own an Xbox in the first place.

    Does anyone with a gaming PC really care?

    I'm sure there are a scattered few, but most of us probably don't.

    I mean, Halo isn't terrible, but there are plenty of PC FPS games that do what it does better. It's basically just a graphics showcase for the Xbox line, and that's hardly impressive for PC gamers.

    There might be some nostalgia involved, but we've got lots of stuff that looks better and does multiplayer better already. I'd have a hard time caring even if it really was being launched on PC.

    I'm pretty sure that the only reason any of PC gamers cared at all is either because of rose colored glasses in regard to the earlier games, or the fact that it would be one less exclusive for the more obnoxious Xbox gamers to pretend is an amazing thing we can't have.

    It's still a thing we can't have, but it's more basic than CoD as a shooter and not exactly a huge loss.

    You have a typo in the title, if you don't mind removing that last "be" from the title.

    The reason they won't ever release Halo on PC again because it can't compete with any FPS games on the PC. *grabs popcorn*

    I disagree, but I won't get sucked into a debate on it. Namely because what have we seen of POC FPS that has really blossomed these days? CS:GO and Dirty Bomb, yep that's it. No new Crysis, no other games that people wouldn't rather play on console these days.
  • NeedsFoodBadly
    Dirty Bomb is a f2p crapfest (not because it's free, because it's a crapfest) and trying to lump it alongside CSGO, as if DB is in the same league is a grave disservice.

    Dirty Bomb is actually highlypopular, which is why it's mentioned beside CS:Go.
  • NeedsFoodBadly
    Combat Arms used to be 'highly popular' too. Anyway, I'll agree to disagree and we can call it even.
