Halo 5 PC Port Wouldn't Be Hard, Has "Plenty" Chance of Happening, Says Exec
Frank O'Connor says Microsoft's commitment to Windows 10 could result in a Halo 5 PC release.
Halo franchise director Frank O'Connor has said there is "plenty" of chance that Halo 5: Guardians could be released on PC, given Microsoft growing commitment to Windows 10 as a gaming platform and attempts to homogenise it with Xbox One.

O'Connor appeared on a live stream to speak to GamesRadar and, at around the 31 minute mark, is asked whether there's any chance of Halo 5 coming to the PC.
"Microsoft has made a huge commitment to normalise the Windows experience across multiple platforms, so you're seeing elements of Windows 10 are going to appear on the Xbox and Cortana and stuff like that, There is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC." he replied.
"There's nothing new to announce at this point, but it's absolutely not out of the bounds of reason, and we developed the game on an Intel platform, so it wouldn't be the hardest thing in the world to move it to PC and take advantage of PC stuff."
The last Halo game to appear on the PC was twin-stick shooter Halo: Spartan Strike, which was a spiritual successor to 2013's Halo: Spartan Assault. The game was co-developed by 343 Industries and Vanguard Games, and set during the events of Halo 2.
The Halo 5: Guardians release date has been confirmed as October 27. The game will introduce a new multiplayer mode called WarZone, which supports up to 24 players.
Bonnie Ross, head of Halo developer 343 Industries, has discussed the history of the sci-fi shooter series, revealing many at Microsoft didn't expect it to be around for very long.
