Microsoft once again denies Halo 5: Guardians PC rumours

Well, it didn’t take long before Microsoft denied the latest rumours about Halo 5 coming to the PC. As Microsoft’s spokesperson told PCGamer, there are currently no plans to bring this Halo game to the PC.

As Microsoft’s spokesperson claimed:

“Our approach is to deliver epic Halo experiences designed for PC gamers and Windows 10, such as Halo Wars 2 and the recently announced Halo 5: Forge. There are no plans to port Halo 5: Guardians to PC.”

For what is worth, Halo 5’s sales did not meet expectations (according to various reports). A PC announcement – at this point – would certainly hurt those sales, so it does make sense – from a business point of view – to deny such rumours.

Our guess is that, if Microsoft has any plans at all to bring Halo 5 to the PC, it will announce the PC version after the release of Forge for the PC. If that doesn’t happen in the next 5-6 months after Forge hits the PC, then we can kiss it goodbye.

Of course Microsoft could offer a “lite” of it, in a similar way they did for Forza Motorsport 6. That’s also a possibility.
