Developer: There’s “plenty of chance” of a Halo 5 PC port
PC gamers have an odd relationship with the Halo series. Since a late port of Halo 2 came to Windows machines in 2007, dedicated PC players have been stuck either bad-mouthing Microsoft’s decision to leave Halo off of Windows or making “sour grapes” protests that they’re actually not missing out on much compared to their Xbox brethren.
Could that streak come to an end with Halo 5, which hits the Xbox One next week? It’s possible, according to 343 Industries Franchise Development Director Frank O’Connor. Speaking on a GamesRadar livestream recently, O’Connor said that “there is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC. Nothing to announce at this point, but it’s absolutely within the bounds of reason.”
“We developed the game on an Intel platform, [so] it wouldn’t be the hardest thing in the world to move it to PC and take advantage of PC stuff,” he added. “But nothing to announce today.”
