Halo 5 may come to PC according to Franchise Director Frank O'Connor

Franchise director Frank O'Connor gives reason to believe the latest Halo game could become the next Xbox One/Windows 10 exclusive.

During a live stream interview with GamesRadar, 343 Industries Franchise Director Frank O'Connor said Halo 5: Guardians has a good chance of being ported to PC in the future.

There is plenty chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC...We developed the game on an Intel platform. It wouldn't be the hardest thing in the world to move it to PC and take advantage of PC stuff.


Halo 5 would not be the first upcoming Microsoft exclusive title to be made available on both Xbox and PC; back in June, Microsoft announced at their E3 press conference that both Gigantic and Fable Legends will be coming to both Xbox One and Windows 10. With the perpetual push from Microsoft to get Windows 10 on all PCs, tablets, and Xbox Ones alike, it would seem like a logical move to make their flagship Xbox title available on both platforms.

This would also not be the first Halo game to go PC. Halo: CE had originally released on both the Xbox and PC, and Halo 2 was later ported to Windows as Halo 2 Vista. There was also a Free to Play shooter called Halo Online announced for PC earlier this year, though it was only made available in Russia.

Halo 5: Guardians comes to the Xbox One on October 27th, and with it a 9GB day one patch. Until then, check out the full GamesRadar interview below, and sound off in the comments on why you think Halo on PC would be great!

    I think I read somewhere that Bonnie Ross said a similar thing... mmm... was getting my Xbox One a good move after all (the answer is YES! I will buy Halo 5 again on PC, happily might I add). I like Halo too much... (which isn't to say I don't see the flaws, oh I do).
