“Plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC” says franchise boss

Halo franchise director Frank O’Connor doesn’t see many barriers to getting the core series back onto PC.


Although Halo 5: Guardians is an Xbox One exclusive, O’Connor doesn’t necessarily expect it to remain one.

Speaking to GamesRadar during a livestreamed play session, as spotted by DSO Gaming, O’Connor said Microsoft’s push to support gaming in Windows 10 could pay off big time.

“There is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC. Nothing to announce at this point but it’s absolutely within the bounds of reason,” he said.

“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 to announce today on this chat.”

Halo on a non-Xbox platform isn’t su surprising. The series actually started off as a Mac exclusive, of all things, before releasing on Mac, PC and the original Xbox. Halo 2 also released on PC, and there’s a free-to-play multiplayer Halo game for PC in Russia, as well.
