Last week, Frank O’Connor, head of all things Halo said that “there is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC.” This got fans rather excited by the prospect of a pc release of the game, with Microsoft promising to focus more on pc gaming. Well, there’s been a development.
On Twitter, he emphasized what he meant by that comment, saying it’s something he’s always said about Halo and the pc. Aaron Greenberg, another of Xbox’s executive figures commented on a rumour of Halo 5 releasing on pc alongside the Xbox One version’s release, saying “This is not true. Game is being made exclusively for Xbox One.”
@FHal0_ I didn't "mention" it, I was asked a question and gave the same noncommittal answer I've been giving to that question for ten years.

Halo 5 Guardians will release at midnight tonight, October 27th on the Xbox One, and reviews are starting to hit the internet as of this morning. Microsoft do intend to focus more on pc gaming, and it wouldn’t affect me in the slightest if some Xbox One titles were made available on PC. Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3 were released on the platform, and it didn’t affect anyone, to my knowledge. If say, Forza Motorsport 6, Forza Horizon 2 or Gears of War Ultimate Edition launched on PC, that would only work in Microsoft’s favour. Some gamers don’t have consoles and a pc, some do. The more people able to play the games, the better, isn’t that right?
