Halo 5 isn’t officially coming to PC – you’ll have to wait for Halo Infinite
There is bad news for all Halo fans who would rather play games on one of our best gaming PCs, as developer 343 Industries has said there are no plans to bring Halo 5 to PC. .
This clarification was made thanks to a leaked list from the Nvidia GeForce Now database, which suggested that Halo 5 would be available on Windows PCs soon. But apparently that’s not the case, although every other Halo game is available on PC thanks to the excellent Halo: The Master Chief Collection. In short, it looks like the next Halo PC game will be the next Halo Infinite.
According to Nvidia, the GeForce Now leak is actually legitimate, but here is where it gets weird. The company said Wccftech that the titles on this list were only “published and / or speculative titles” which are “only used for internal monitoring and testing”.
Among the games listed on the GeForce Now document were quite distant games like Remastered Half Life 2, Bioshock 2022, Titanfall 3 and the Grand Theft Auto trilogy remasters of the PS2 era: GTA 3, Vice City and San. Andreas. Even a Steam version of Alan Wake Remastered, which would be odd considering this particular game is published by Epic Games, which has its own online store and platform.
As for Halo 5, 343i Community Director Brian Jarrad has confirmed that Halo 5 is not coming to PC. He speculates that the list may have something to do with Halo 5: Forge, which launched on PC in 2016, but not the full game.
Maybe it was for “H5: Forge”, but I can confirm that there are no plans to bring H5 to PC. We know there is some demand for this, but like we said before, not in the cards as the studio is completely focused on Infinite and MCC. Never say never, but nothing going on right nowSeptember 13, 2021
Jarrad also added that the developer is completely focused on Halo Infinite and the Master Chief Collection at the moment, but “never say never”.
It would make sense for 343i to finally bring Halo 5 to PC, considering all other Halo games are readily available on Steam or the Microsoft store. But given that the Halo 5 campaign hasn’t been very well received, it certainly won’t be a particularly high priority.
Multiplayer might be a different story, but with Halo Infinite coming to PC on December 8, and the fact that the Master Chief Collection is already available, means Halo 5’s multiplayer probably doesn’t need to do the game. jump either.
In other words, if anyone wants to play Halo 5 anytime soon, they’ll have to go out and buy an Xbox console. Fortunately, being an Xbox One title, which is fairly easy to find, you won’t need to put in the effort to keep up with Xbox Series X restockings.
