Yesterday several media outlets reported about a PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection allegedly “leaked” by Amazon, prompted by a post on NeoGAF. Today Microsoft Studios Global Product Marketing Manager Aaron Greenberg explained on Twitter that it’s just a listing mistake made by retailers:
I was told that was just an error at retail. Sorry for any confusion that caused.
Greenberg also mentioned that he’s visiting Microsoft’s first party studios in the UK, and that “numerous” games are in the works there.
Great to be in the UK, spending the week visiting and meeting with our studios here.
Yep, in the UK to visit our London Studios teams, Lionhead, Rare, etc.
Always new stuff to see, a lot of great teams here working on numerous projects.
Unfortunately for PC gamers, we’re back to square one for Halo, and I’m not sure how likely it is for the main chapters of the franchise to ever return to Windows (probably not too likely).
On the other hand, I can’t be more excited to hear about some of the new projects in the works at Rare and Lionhead. Gamescom is coming, and Microsoft may very well have some surprises for us to bite on.
