Halo 5 was featured in the datamined list of GeForce Now games which made everyone think that the game was coming on PC. But developer 343 Industries has confirmed that they don’t plan on bringing the game to PC.
Brian Jarrard, community director at 343 said on Twitter “Maybe this was for “H5:Forge” but I can confirm there are no plans to bring H5 to PC. We know there’s some demand for it, but as we’ve stated before, not in the cards as the studio is fully focused on Infinite and MCC. Will never say never, but nothing underway currently.”

It’s all about Halo Infinite now
Everyone at 343 Industries is currently focused on the launch of Halo Infinite. The game is scheduled to release on December 8, 2021, for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Windows (Microsoft and Steam stores).
At launch, the game will include a campaign mode and free-to-play multiplayer with two game modes- Arena and Big Team Battle (BTB). If you’re wondering when campaign co-op and Forge will be added, the answer is next year.
Joseph Staten, Halo Infinite’s Head of Creative confirmed that Forge and campaign co-op will not be included in Halo Infinite at the time of launch. Instead, the developer plans on releasing campaign co-op in season 2 about three months after launch, followed by Forge in season 3 which will be about six months after launch.
The game is in the finishing stages and is one of the most anticipated games of this year. The developer recently concluded technical previews for Halo Infinite after which they are bringing a couple of changes to the game. One of them is that they are making the game’s radar like previous titles.
