Halo 5: Guardians Will Remain An Xbox Exclusive

Halo 5: Guardians Will Remain An Xbox Exclusive

The Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer has confirmed that a port of Halo 5: Guardians to PC is unlikely, while future Halo FPS games may make the jump over.

While other titles like Forza, Quantum Break and Gears of War have made their way to Windows 10 platforms, the Halo FPS titles seem to be one of the remaining Xbox exclusives, for the time being.

In terms of Halo FPS on PC, I think there’s a ton of opportunity for us right now, but I don’t want to get into a world where we’re looking back, like at Halo 5. It doesn’t mean there’s nothing there that could ever end up on PC, but I’d much rather look forward with what our plans are.” Spencer said, “I don’t want to make it some kind of artificial mandate, because then I think we end up with ‘Frankengames’, games that really weren’t meant for a certain platform. And because some suit said, ‘Hey, everything’s gotta run on both platforms’, you end up with something people don’t want.

Halo Wars 2 will be launching this later for Xbox One and Windows 10, the only next generation Halo title scheduled to launch on both platforms. The last FPS Halo game that was released on Windows platforms was back in 2007 when Halo 2 was released for Windows Vista.
