Halo 5: Guardians Is Only Coming To Xbox One, Microsoft Kills PC Rumors

Rumors seem to have sprung up thanks to a big time misunderstanding.

Halo 5: Guardians

Well, that didn’t take long. Shortly after rumors started flying that Halo 5: Guardians could eventually come to the PC, Microsoft made sure to tamp down those same rumors on Twitter saying the only platform the title was coming to was the Xbox One. The original problem started when the game’s development director Frank O’Connor told stated in a recent interview that Halo 5 coming to the PC is something that, “could appear on the PC. Nothing to announce at this point but it’s absolutely within the bounds of reason.”

As fans of a game series are want to do, it appears a large swath of them missed the part where O’Connor said there was “nothing to announce” and instead focused on “could appear” as being confirmation that it would appear on the PC. Aaron Greenberg, one of the bigwigs at Microsoft was asked on the social media site why the company would start thinking about bringing the game to the PC just days before it was due to launch on the Xbox One.

Greenberg responded that simply wasn’t true. He made it very clear there is exactly one platform people will be able to play this game on. “This is not true. Game is being made exclusively for Xbox One.” It seems pretty clear that O’Connor was talking well in the future, if at all and some people decided to run with the rumors. We can only hope that from here on out, that kind of hysteria will settle down now and just wait until Halo 5: Guardians does indeed launch on October 27, 2015 exclusively for the Xbox One.

    I dont get why xbox fanboys are so against this. As an xbox fan, i welcome xbox console and xbox pc app unification. That means more people for me to play with and means that ms will sell more software leading to more investment….which in turn will benefit the gamers.

      because you like the feeling of slumming it in the gutter of graphics??

    • lagann

      mmm….no, but nice try anyways. PC version it always better sure. I have a 1440p monitor and am capable of playing most games on high settings with my GTX970…but the difference is not such a big jump. If the difference was Gamecube graphics vs X360…then sure, I would only be playing on pc now….but its not.

      Most games are created with console versions in mind. So there is a limit to how much better the graphic settings are going to make the game look. Except for a few exceptions ofc. I would never play Witcher 3 on any console for example.

      Yeah, the PC version has better textures, fps, etc…but that does not take away from the fact that their console version counter parts still look modern. After all, as long as the game graphics look modern, most of the time, i’m busy playing the game and not staring at the graphics.

      Even more so when you are playing on a big screen and are 5-8 feet away, except for fps, most of the other advantages the pc version (of a game which is being held back by console versions) runs into diminishing returns.

      Not to mention that not all games are created with high end graphics in mind. This further diminishes a lot of the pc advantages.

    This isn’t them crushing rumors though…. nothing has changed. all that was stated was that it *could* appear on PC at some point. nothing about it coming anytime soon. It’s not their fault some guy on twitter was daft and couldn’t understand what the guy originally said. Now everyone is blaming any site that quoted the original guy saying that it could appear at some point.
