Halo 5 has "plenty of chance" of coming to PC, say its developers

Halo 5: Guardians

We’re three games and, apparently, nine novels behind. But in this bold new Windows 10-enabled future, current series custodians 343 Industries reckon there’s more than outside an chance that Halo proper will return to the PC as long last.

Though it’s officially announced only for Xbox One, 343 franchise director Frank O’Connor says there’s no technical reason why Halo 5: Guardians couldn’t come to our fair platform.

In the meantime, why not play one of the best first-person shooters already on PC?

“Microsoft has made a huge commitment trying to normalize the Windows experience across multiple platforms,” he told GamesRadar in a livestream. “You see elements of Windows 10 are going to appear in Xbox and Cortana and stuff like that.

“There is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC,” he went on. “Nothing to announce at this point, [but] you know, 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. But nothing I [can] announce today on this chat.”

Perhaps we’ll be better served by 343 now than we were by Bungie a decade ago. Trying to play Halo 2 on Vista was “like moving through waist-high grass on a tricycle”, PCGamesN colourful similes editor Phil recalls. And the more recent Halo: Spartan Assault drove our Tim to use some of the foulest language ever seen on the site. What was your last experience with a Halo game?

Only ever played Halo ODST on the 360. I'm assured by my franchise loving buddy that this was one of the weaker entries in the series. Nevertheless, I was pretty underwhelmed.

I never played Halo 4. I don't know where the story is going anymore, but I sure loved playing all the previous Halo games, story and gameplay wise. Maybe I should play 4 and get 5 if it comes out on PC.

Is the GFWL account the same as a Windows store account? Obviously this would not appear on steam
