Microsoft’s recent plans to get back into PC platform sprouted many speculations in the gaming industry. Now, a source claimed Halo 5: Guardians will be receiving a PC port and is scheduled to be announced at E3 2016.
Halo 5 Guardians gameplay for PC might be featured in E3?
Dark Side of Gaming said that their industry insider has confirmed “from multiple sources that Halo 5 will be coming to PC.” While it might be hard to consider a random report to be credible, it is worth noting this person is also known for the leak of confirming Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim remaster.
However, PC fans would unfortunately have to hold their horses, as according to tweaktown, Microsoft has shot down the possibility of Halo 5 PC port as of now.
“Our approach is to deliver epic Halo experiences designed for PC gamers and Windows 10, such as Halo Wars 2 and the recently announced Halo 5: Forge. There are no plans to port Halo 5: Guardians to PC,” a Microsoft representative told PC Gamer.
While it’s regrettable that fans can’t expect Halo 5 PC port anytime sooner this year, Microsoft and 343 Industries will be releasing Halo Wars 2 that is compatible with cross-platform play between PC and Xbox One players. Recent rumors also suggested publishers are planning to launch a free-to-play, multiplayer only Halo Online.
However, Gamerant believes if Microsoft has plans of porting the game to PC, it will likely be announced at the PC Gaming Show conference.
Microsoft’s recent move of porting Xbox One-exclusive games to PC could be a sign that we cannot ignore the possibility of more Xbox One games for Windows 10 PCs. Most fans are still hoping Microsoft’s E3 announcement will leave the audience awestruck. We’ll just have to wait and see.
