[PCGamer] There's "plenty of chance" Halo 5 could come to PC, says 343 rep

Halo 5 isn't coming to PC, despite Microsoft's frequent claims that it is "embracing" the PC community. At least, that's the official line: according to 343 Industries franchise director Frank O'Connor, it's not out of the question. In a livestream with our sister site GamesRadar, O'Connor responded positively to questions regarding an eventual PC port.



Quote:
“Microsoft has made a huge commitment trying to normalize the Windows experience across multiple platforms," O'Connor said. "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 continued. "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 announce today on this chat.”

I don't know why they wouldn't do it now. Unless they're still building their new version of GFWL Marketplace and want this as the launch title.

I agree, this game will come to PC when pigs fly. Halo is one of the main reasons to buy an Xbox One, and for many it's the only reason.

They need to sort out the moving (installing to other places) apps from the store first so priority would be to make sure the store is working as intended. Right now, Anyone with a 120/ 256? GB ssd is not playing any AAA game on the windows store, I say that as a victim of a full 120GB ssd after fable legends attempted to download a 47GB update which which didn't even check if I had enough space prior to attempting to download was stuck at some weird % still trying to download (until I removed it)

And in this case, with pretty much anyone able to get win10, it kinda doesn't matter.

This is my only chance of playing Halo as I am never going to buy an Xbox ever again. Although, I don't really see why they would want to do this. Halo is a BIG Xbox seller. Someone who is a playstation user would actually think about buying an Xbox just for this game.

Yea maybe in a couple years but not any time soon.
Halo is the mascot of the xbox and there is simply no way Microsoft going to willingly lose that exclusive.
