Halo Franchise Director: “There Is Plenty of Chance That Halo 5 Could Appear on the PC” (UPDATED)
PC gamers missed on two Halo games, but the franchise has a possibility to return to the platform.
Halo Franchise Director Frank O’Connor was recently in a livestream, and during the chat, he talked about Windows 10, and Microsoft’s commitment to bring Windows to all of its platforms.
He continued to say that the development of Halo 5: Guardians was made on “an Intel platform,” so it wouldn’t be that difficult to bring it to PC.
“Microsoft has made a huge commitment trying to, i think, normalize the Windows experience across multiple platforms. You see the elements of Windows 10 are going to appear in Xbox and Cortana and stuff like that.
“There is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC, nothing new to announce at this point, but it’s absolutely not out of the bounds of reason. You know, 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 5 Guardians releases on October 27 exclusively for the Xbox One.
Update: Marketing Head Aaron Geenberg confirmed on Twitter that the game is being developed exclusively for Xbox One. You can read all about that here.
