Halo 5 on PC is Looking More Like It’s a Thing
Halo PC

Who needs PR these days when we have retailers. It appears Amazon is hinting at the release of Halo 5: Guardians on PC. There’s a subtle, but significant change on the game’s box art. Take a look.

The box art change is visible on Amazon US right now. The new banner, “Xbox One Console Exclusive’ pretty much guarantees a PC release is incoming. And who’s surprised really?

Putting Xbox One exclusive games on PC has been a Microsoft position for a while now. Plus, in Halo 5’s case, we’ve already seen a piece of it on PC. Halo 5: Forge Edition hit PC almost two years ago to the day.

Putting the entire Halo 5 package on PC feels like a solid test run as 343 Industries is knee deep in Halo Infinite development. Iron out any bugs now before the next one.

A PC release also brings up the possibility of Xbox Play Anywhere support. It should be a sure thing, but we’ll have to wait for official word from Microsoft to know anything for sure. That includes what Amazon is suggesting – a PC release.

I don’t know how much of a market there is for Halo 5 on PC anymore, but it’s always good to see Microsoft reinforce their support for having first party games also appear on PC. And like I said, it gives the team porting much-needed experience they’ll need to get Halo: Infinite over there too.

And now I’m going to use this article as an excuse to watch the Halo Infinite trailer again.

So good.
