343 Industries said Halo 5: Guardians not will arrive on PC following an Nvidia GeForce Now database leak that suggested it could be a possibility.
The leak earlier this week revealed potential rosters for many seemingly unannounced PC games, including several PlayStation exclusives and, of course, the coveted Halo 5.
In a statement to Wccftech, Nvidia confirmed the leak but said “published and / or speculative titles” on the list were only used for internal monitoring and testing “and that inclusion on the list was not is neither a confirmation nor an announcement of a game. “
That hasn’t stopped Halo fans from speculating that Halo 5 may finally make its way to PC. However, Halo Community Director Brian Jarrard has now said that won’t be the case.
Responding to posts about it on Twitter, Jarrard said the list may be … for H5: Forge “but added that there are no plans” for a Halo 5 PC port. Jarrard acknowledged fan demand for the port, but said the studio is fully focused on Infinite and MCC. [Master Chief Collection]”.
Jarrard was careful to never say never, ”but it looks like there is definitely nothing in development at the moment, and there won’t be any in the near future.
Maybe it was for “H5: Forge”, but I can confirm that there are no plans to bring H5 to PC. We know there is some demand for this, but like we said before, not in the cards as the studio is completely focused on Infinite and MCC. Never say never, but nothing going on right nowSeptember 13, 2021
This isn’t the first time 343 Industries has had to deny its intention to bring Halo 5 to PC. It wasn’t until last year that Halo Community Manager John Junyszek confirmed during a stream to celebrate the game’s fifth anniversary that the game would not be releasing on PC, even as part of the Master. Chief Collection.
Notice: Better to be careful
Halo 5 likely won’t be the last game on the leaked Nvidia list that a developer or publisher will have to come up with and deny. In fact, this early denial is probably a pretty good sign that we should be taking the list with a huge tub of salt, even though it’s a title that looks like it. could be a realistic candidate for a PC port.
Granted, there were some pretty questionable and even outdated items on the list, but there were also some lists that weren’t totally far-fetched. Halo 5 was one of them and some ports of exclusive PlayStation games were others.
Sony has said that it plans to bring more of its games to PC, which gives credit to their appearance on the list, but that doesn’t mean we can be sure the specific games that were part of the leak – Returnal and Demons Souls among others – will certainly come to the PC streaming service and / or Nvidias.
As Nvidia said in its statement, many of the announcements were speculative, “and as Jarrards’ statement showed, it’s probably safer to wait for an official announcement before you have too much hope about it. one of them.
So, Halo 5 still isn’t coming to PC, then. However, Halo Infinite is. The next Halo game is coming to PC and Xbox very soon, in fact, with its release date finally confirmed for December 8. 343 Industries has promised that Halo Infinite will be a first-class PC experience and that it is not a port, it is designed for the PC.
