Halo 5 – 343 Industries Still Has “No Plans” for a PC Port

Following Halo 5 popping up in the recent GeForce Now leak, 343 Industries' Brian Jarrard reiterates that the developer has no plans to bring the game to pc.

Now that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is available on PC in its entirety, pretty much every mainline game in the series is now playable on the platform- all except one. Halo 5: Guardians launched as an Xbox One exclusive, and an exclusive it remains, with developer 343 Industries even having stated multiple times, in no vague terms, that not only is it not coming to PC, it’s also not going to be added to The Master Chief Collection.

Recently, Halo 5 was one of many games mentioned in the partially speculative list of leaked games from the GeForce Now database, sparking speculation that a PC version is finally in the works. Well, those hopes have been dashed again. 343 Industries community manager Brian Jarrard recently took to Twitter saying that the GeForce Now listing was probably for Halo 5: Forge (which is available on the platform), before adding that though 343 is aware of the demand for a Halo 5 PC port, the studio is currently focused on Halo Infinite and The Master Chief Collection, and has nothing else in the works.

“Never say never, but nothing underway currently,” Jarrard concludes.

Halo 5 remains the only game in the series that is not available on PC, so it makes sense that there’s quite a few series fans who’re hoping that 343 Industries will plug that hole sooner rather than later, especially with the looming launch of Infinite and the launch of The Master Chief Collection having drummed up so much excitement for Halo in general. For now, it seems like Halo 5 will remain on Xbox exclusively, but here’s hoping that changes eventually.
