Amazon may have just teased the first retail Halo FPS on PC in 11 years
After over 11 years, a retail Halo FPS game may finally be on its way to Windows.
A weekend update to Amazon’s listing for Halo 5: Guardians included an enticing, and clearly intentional, change to its box art: a new “Xbox One console exclusive” label. The phrase appears not once, not twice, but thrice via cleanly rendered angles of a physical box, and it replaces the original 2015 box’s “only on Xbox One” descriptor.
Microsoft’s “Xbox Play Anywhere” initiative formally launched in late 2016 with the third-person platformer ReCore. The program has since included every first-party Microsoft game on Xbox, allowing those games to work either on any Xbox One system or any Windows 10 PC. (By arriving one year earlier, Halo 5 missed the Play Anywhere cut.) Recent games in the program, including this year’s State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves, feature the same “console exclusive” tag on their Xbox One boxes and also run on Windows 10.
