There are currently no plans to bring Halo 5: Guardians to PC, according to developer 343 Industries.
During a stream to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Halo 5 (via Gamespot), Halo community manager John Junyszek confirmed that there are currently no plans to bring Guardians to PC.
Junyszek also reaffirmed that there are no plans to add Halo 5 to the Halo Master Chief Collection on PC or Xbox – something which developer 343 Industries has already stated on a few occasions.
But you could always play Forge?
While Halo 5: Guardians isn’t available on PC currently, the community manager pointed out that Halo 5 is kind of already on PC – in the form of Halo 5: Forge.
Halo 5: Forge is a free port of Halo 5: Guardians. However, Forge only supports Forge and Custom games, but not Campaign or Multiplayer matchmaking. So, it’s not really the full Halo 5 experience that you get with Halo 5: Guardians.
While this is unfortunate news for Halo 5 PC fans, at least the upcoming Halo Infinite will be playable on PC – though we’re still unsure of when exactly that will be outside of a 2021 release window.
