With the Xbox One and Windows 10 being smushed together hard by Microsoft, Halo’s franchise director has said that the latest game, Halo 5: Guardians, has plenty of chance of being shifted over to PC.
Speaking in a wide-ranging interview with GamesRadar, franchise director Frank O’Connor explained that it wouldn’t be hard to port the game over to PC, considering that it was developed on the Intel platform.
Microsoft has made a huge commitment to normalise the Windows experience across multiple platforms, so you’re seeing elements of Windows 10 are going to appear on the Xbox and Cortana and stuff like that, There is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC.
There’s nothing new to announce at this point, but it’s absolutely not out of the bounds of reason, and 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.
Halo 5: Guardians is set to be released on Xbox One on October 27, and will feature up to 24 players in a multiplayer game mode called Warzone. No news on exactly when it might come to PC, but judging by this it probably won’t be in the too distant future.
