    Highlights of the Story

    • Halo 5: Guardians  will not get  PC version, at least for now.
    • Other Halo games are available to play on PC via the Master Chief Collection.
    • Halo Infinite will release for PC and consoles on December 8, 2021.

    Like Doom and Half Life, Halo is one other iconic title which has been successful across all platforms. The masterpiece of a franchise by Master Chief is making a comeback this year as well. Halo Infinite is all set to release on December 8, 2021. Moreover, the game will be releasing for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Microsoft Windows. Halo 5 is one of those games in the franchise which PC gamers can’t play.

    Fans of the franchise have been asking one question for quite some time now, when will Halo 5 for PC roll out? There is bad news for PC gamers as 343 Studios, the developers of the game have now revealed that a PC version for the game is not in the works currently.

    Pretty much the entire Halo franchise is available for PC gamers to enjoy. PC gamers can simply get their hands on the Master Chief Collection and enjoy all the major titles from the franchise, like Halo 4, ODST, Reach and more.

    Recently, GeForce Now has been a rumour mill favourite in the realm of gaming. Some leaksters and fans of the franchise claimed to have spotted what appeared to be a PC port for Halo 5: Guardians. However, now we know that is certainly not the case. Brain Jarrard, 343 Studios Community Director, took to Twitter to reveal that the game will not be getting a PC version anytime soon.

    Jarrard says that they have been seeing quite a bit of demand for the PC version of the game. However, according to Jarrard, they are more focused towards releasing the latest title of the franchise. Halo Infinite is a huge project and the company indeed is giving it their all to roll out a good game, from the looks of it. Moreover, multitasking is probably not a really good idea, going by CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 incident.

    Companies have become increasingly more cautious about rolling out complete games with minimal bugs and glitches. Although Halo 5 is probably regarded as one of the most underwhelming titles in the franchise, it still is Halo for the fans. PC gamers are still looking forward to playing it and that is quite understandable.

    Further, a PC port of the game is definitely not going to bring about a change with Halo 5: Guardian’s storyline or main single-player campaign, it will definitely offer a better performance. The game’s single-player campaign was very underwhelming, which caused the game to not receive that good reviews like the other entries in the franchise. However, Halo is less of a game and more all about a cult fanbase now, much like Doom, God of War and so on.

    Besides, Jarrard also mentioned that the Nvidia GeForce database was probably referring to Halo 5: Forge. Now, Forge was a port of the game’s Forge Mode for Windows 10. However, the studio does not have any plans to release a PC version of the game, as per Brian’s tweet.
