Halo 5 won’t ever come to PC

One of Xbox One’s biggest exclusives, Halo 5, won’t make the jump to Windows according to head of Xbox Phil Spencer.

The news was given as part of a Q&A session at Microsoft’s Build 2016 where Spencer addressed the media.

Spencer argued that Halo 5’s gameplay was designed from the ground up for consoles and wouldn’t translate well to a mouse and keyboard.

“You should expect it when franchises look like they belong on both platforms, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s a mandate for the studios because it’s not.”


“In terms of Halo FPS on PC, I think there’s a ton of opportunity for us right now, but I don’t want to get into a world where we’re looking back, like at Halo 5.

Spencer cited games that do work well on both platforms including Quantum Break, Forza 6 and Rise of the Tomb Raider, but insisted that there was no Microsoft mandate to ensure games work on both Xbox and PC.
