Fans of Halo 5 will be happy to learn that soon the Forge level creation tool will be released for PC for free. Sadly, there aren’t many chances that this will be followed by the Halo 5 game itself. The Halo 6 game though has been already announced for Windows 10, so you can be sure this is going to happen.
At the E3 event held this year, we learned that all Microsoft games that were first-party (such as Scalebound, Forza Horizon 3 or Gears of War 4) will be available both for Windows 10 and Xbox One, to many fans’ delight. The plan Microsoft has with these two platforms includes making available the possibility to buy online, so that you don’t need to pay twice for the same game. Also, you should be able in the future to play between the platforms you own by using a common library.
However, many people wondered whether Microsoft will reserve some of the games just for Xbox in order to secure their place in the fight for consoles with Sony. Phil Spencer, CEO at Xbox, declared that this is not the case and that they don’t intend to force gamers to buy an Xbox just to play a particular game.
Regarding the Halo 5 on PC, he also said that they thought whether they should rework the game and make it available for PC, or simply work together with 343 Industries and progress with the next game. However, Spencer said that there is a high probability that they will finish the PC version soon, since it makes sense that they want to make all the first-party Microsoft games available in this way too. He also gave more details about how the company wants to improve their shipping skills when it comes to PC games, given the issues they had with Gears of War Ultimate Edition and Quantum Break.
