Microsoft has revealed that there are no plans to bring Halo 5: Guardians to PC, despite rumours to the contrary.

Speculation that Master Chief's alien-blasting sequel would hit PC cropped up earlier this week, with Amazon posted a tweaked box art for the game that replaced the 'Xbox One Exclusive' tag with 'Xbox One Console Exclusive.'

It's a small change, but people were convinced this meant that the game would be heading to PC. After all, if something is deemed a console exclusive, that still leaves room for a home computer release, right?

Not so, apparently.

'As we've shared previously, we do not have plans to launch Halo 5: Guardians on Windows 10 PC,' Microsoft told CNET. Bugger.

You would have thought a game like Halo 5 would make perfect sense for PC, but it seems Microsoft has other ideas. Still, there's always the upcoming Halo Infinite, which is coming to PC whenever it sees the light of day.
