There have been rumors floating around about a possible PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and in order to shed some light on them DualShockers had a chat with 343 Industries Studio Head Bonnie Ross at Gamescom.
Maybe some day MS will cash in on the PC market for Halo, but the last time they did that it was 2007, three years after the console release. Since then several halo games have been released, none of which came to PC
Steam Halo: Spartan Assault Release Date: Apr 4, 2014
It actually launched on Windows 8 store before Xbox.
Oh I forgot truth and fact get pushed aside when they don't fit into console fanboy agendas. Sorry I forgot what site I was on for a second. I'll try to remember that for next time. On another note I love how every single time I've heard the quote "I cannot comment" when it comes to a PC release in the 30+ years I've been gaming that it's always followed by a PC version. Can't wait to pick this up on PC.
Well MS did say they would support the PC platform this time around so maybe Halo MCC or Halo 5 will see a release on PC after the initial console release.
Supporting the PC is one thing , but doing something as stupid as that they might as well close up shop.
Halo 5 timed exclusive for windows 9, 2 years after Xbox One release. Timed as in 6 hours before fans crack it to work on older versions of windows.
They've been saying they'll support the PC for years and nothing has ever come of it. I don't expect Halo MCC or Halo 5 to come to PC as MS hate the PC gaming platform. It's competition for their own Xbox. The only reason we got Ryse and Dead Rising 3 is because they are 3rd party games and not controlled by MS. Not sure why we're even getting the Fable Anniversary edition as we already have Fable The Lost Chapters especially for the price they are charging. I gave up on MS supporting the PC many years ago ever since they released the first Xbox and I'm fine for them to keep as far away from the PC platform as possible.
It kinda makes sense that they would allow halo to be on pc. They recently stated that they would support pc. After all lionhead recently decided to release fable anniversary to pc so it seems that microsoft is willing to put major exclusives on pc.
PC gamers gotta let this one go
It's getting annoying having 1 and 2 on PC plus Spartan assault and no further support.
M$ will release this with windows 9! It will come to PC. they like money. M$ makes money regardless.
$ony likes money too just as any company does. It will be nice when they can make money like MS.
You mean like the $500 million loss the xbox division cost this year?
I won't refute that. I was referring to the company's as a whole. Sony isn't making money like MS is. There is no spinning that.
Obviously lol. I use windows 8.1 as I'm primarily PC. Nothing against ms and I think Phil can bring xb1 to light but as of now aside from halo I have no reason to get one. I was an Xbox fan until late 360.
That actually gives hope for a PC version. Before that I would have imagined they would have straight up said no.
It will come to PC as Windows 9 exclusive.
Cause everyone ran out to buy Vista last time they tried that tactic.All everyone did w as cry foul and whining .
Halo 2 Vista was a turd for a Vista system seller, it was an older game that looked dated but yet required the power of Vista for some reason....lol By this time Halo 3 was already on its way on consoles and included much more to be excited about. Lets reverse roles Imagine if Halo ODST was a launch title for Xbox One but it still pretty much looked liked the 360 version at the same time the PC was getting Halo 5. Now imagine ODST has no co-op and other new modes you might enjoy, but they would be in Halo 5.
Letting Ryse or Dead Rising go to PC is one thing. Letting Halo go would be just suicide.
That is silly. Either way the money goes to Microsoft and supports their platfroms. It is a win/win.
And takes away the MAIN reason people have to buy an Xbox One.
^^^ Nobody is buying an Xbox One to play older Halo games.
Fortunately, there is a system that will have the Master Chief Collection....it's called Xbox one
There is nothing to say other that it will not be released on PC , now move along people it's a console game to sale consoles.
Really would like mods on this..
Yeah, that's diffidently how your going to win over the PC market? s/c High five Don Mattrick! http://news.distractify.com... Crickets......
I really think that it is possible to see a PC release for the Master Chief Collection. However, it is also be perfectly sensible to have the Xbox and PC releases substantially separate from each other, so that the Xbox One can gain much more attention. Otherwise, Microsoft would essentially be competing with their own console. To me this bundle seems tailor made for PC, since PC had to completely miss out on Halo 3 and 4. Microsoft claims that they are very serious about PC gaming. Well this would be the perfect opportunity to show that.
I dont think MS will compete with themselves by releasing it on both. They are old games. Instead its a shame they are still milking their beloved franchise so much. MS is supporting themselves regardless. MS will be boosting both Xbox and PC market which is good for MS in the long run. If MS keeps ignoring PC gamers long enough and Devs start supporting other OS like Mac and Linux and with all the experimental Android OS' then at some point in time MS will lose control over its most used OS. Gamers who own an Xbox will buy it on that and PC gamers will enjoy it in theirs. A console gamer whose mind is set on console wont go out of their way to buy a gaming pc.
Not saying it's likely BUT if it's forever exclusive to xbox, why can't MS just say it? Why say "no comment" or "no plans at this time"? That only leaves people thinking it's a possibility
Why couldn't they have upgraded the Halo 3 cutscenes to cg as well? Gonna be jarring going from halo 2 to halo 3 lol. It's not a big deal but would have been nice.
Thats for Halo 3 anniversary lmfao. Feel sad for the cow.
Microsoft will have to be brain dead stupid to let it come to pc
