On a recent GamesRadar livestream, Halo franchise director Frank O’Connor said that “there is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC”. On October 23, when asked about the alleged PC version, O’Connor replied the following: “I didn’t “mention” it, I was asked a question and gave the same noncommittal answer I’ve been giving to that question for ten years”.
Aaron Greenberg, Xbox’s director of Product Manager, claimed that rumors revolving around a potential PC version for Halo 5 are false. You can read Greenberg’s reply in its context below.
@RMDXBOX This is not true. Game is being made exclusively for Xbox One.

The discussion continued as another twitter user asked for a rebuttal. This time, O’Connor said: “… he said the same thing I did. It’s not out of the question, but “there’s no plan at this time?”.
It is safe to assume that a PC version for Halo 5 is very unlikely. The game is due to be released on October 27 as a Xbox One exclusive.
