The large Nvidia game leak included Halo 5: Guardians for PC, but 343 Industries has officially confirmed it isn’t planning to release the game on PC.
Community director Brian Jarred stated on Twitter (via VGC) that Halo 5 might have been spotted in the leak because Halo 5’s Forge mode is available on PC. However, the full game is not coming to PC. “Maybe this was for H5: Forge but I can confirm there are no plans to bring H5 to PC,” Jarrard stated. Nvidia did acknowledge that the list was made up of “speculative” games, as well as those that are already released.
Jarrard added that 343 knows there is “some demand” within the Halo community to bring Halo 5 to PC. As the studio has said before, it’s just “not in the cards” because 343 is “fully focused” on getting Halo Infinite out in December. This is on top of the ongoing support the developer has been brining to Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Jarrard did say that it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility that Halo 5 might head to the PC some day.
“Will never say never, but nothing underway currently,” Jarrard said.
Halo 5: Forge came to PC in 2016 as a free game, which included the full Forge map editor and multiplayer support for Custom Games. However, the game’s campaign and full multiplayer have not been released for PC.
