Halo 5 Is Really Coming To PC, New Listing Suggests
A free version of Halo 5 is already available on PC, but it looks like Microsoft might have more planned.
It looks like Halo 5: Guardians might be coming to PC. As spotted by Ars Technica, retail giant Amazon has updated the game's box art to state that Halo 5 is an "Xbox One Console Exclusive," whereas the previous box art contained a line that said "Xbox One Exclusive."
Microsoft did not respond to GameSpot's request for comment about Halo 5 potentially coming to PC.
The 2007 Windows Vista port of Halo 2 was the last officially released Halo game at retail for PC. More recently, Microsoft released Halo 5's excellent Forge tools for free on PC, complete with matchmaking support--but no campaign.
Back in April, Xbox boss Phil Spencer gave Halo fans hope for more releases on PC, though he stopped short of confirming anything. Halo: Infinite, which is essentially Halo 6, is coming to PC, but it may not support Microsoft's Xbox Play Anywhere service.
What we also know about Halo: Infinite is that all Xbox Game Pass subscribers will get that game, and all of Microsoft's other first-party games, at no extra cost.
