This clarification came about thanks to a leaked list from the Nvidia GeForce Now database, which suggested Halo 5 would be making it to Windows PCs in the near future. But that’s apparently not the case, despite every other Halo game being available on the PC thanks to the excellent Halo: The Master Chief Collection. In short, it looks like the next Halo PC game will be the upcoming Halo Infinite.
There’s bad news for all the Halo fans that prefer to play games on one of our best gaming PCs, because developer 343 Industries has declared there are no plans to bring Halo 5 to PC.
It would make sense for 343i to bring Halo 5 to PC eventually, seeing as how all the other Halo games are readily available on either Steam or the Microsoft store. But considering that Halo 5’s campaign was not very well received it’s certainly not going to be a particularly high priority.
In other words, if anyone wants to play Halo 5 anytime soon they’re going to have to go out and buy an Xbox console. Thankfully, being an Xbox One title, which are pretty easy to come by, you won’t need to go to the effort of tracking Xbox Series X restocks.
Multiplayer might be a different story, but with Halo Infinite coming to PC on December 8, and the fact the Master Chief Collection is already available, means there likely isn’t much need for Halo 5’s multiplayer to make the jump either.
