Halo 3, Quantum Conundrum 2 spotted in Steam files

Monday, 4th February 2013 02:03 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Halo 3 looks set for a PC release, and Quantum Conundrum 2 is a thing that’s happening, if we can trust Steam’s database.

Halo 3 and xPaw’s Steam Database search, as spotted by NeoGAF users.

It was among a number of listed titles which haven’t been announced for Steam release, including La-Mulana, Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition, Fez, Dyad, Cut the Rope, Shadow Warrior Complete, Halo 2, Halo: Combat Evolved, Angry Birds Space, Angry Birds Seasons and Second Life. Other titles listed include known upcoming PC ports like Resident Evil: Revelations.

According to early comments, Steam Community pages were available for many of these titles – a function xPaw’s search tool has only recently introduced. The links no longer seem to function; either this was a fib or Valve cracked down on the leak quickly.

Although Microsoft has historically relied on Games for Windows Live rather than utilising Steam’s more popular PC distribution system, Gamechup reports a Microsoft staffer’s job description included a reference to the monetisation of Steam.

Steam registry leaks are generally proved correct in the long run, but sometimes update months or even years ahead of announce or release, as with Final Fantasy VII. BrĂ¼tal Legend was spotted in there over the weekend.

Thanks, Jamie.

    Hmm, I would actually consider grabbing Halo 3 again if it comes out on PC.

    Halo 3 would be a whole different experience on PC. I hope this is true but it’s probably not.

    King of Fighters is on that list! I’d buy both UMs in a heartbeat. If XIII really were to appear too, that’d be something else :D The full list shows that entries for the original trilogy of Halo games were found, not just H3.

    Releasing Halo 3 on PC after all this time, likely a Win8 exclusive for no real reason would be just like something that Microsoft Game Studios would do.

    #4 Was playing Halo-2 on windows XP no problemo, and playing it again now on 7, despite it being vista exclusive. There will be patches…

    And damn if it’s true, I’m kind of two minds on a subject, it’s awesome to finally play this game on PC with a mouse and forget about horrible horrible controller, but from other point of view I just bought xbox360 mostly for Halo games that are not on PC…

    It will be probably a Win8 exclusive.

    I remember how Halo 2 flopped as exclusive to Vista. Lawl.
