A PC release for Halo 5: Guardians was included in the recent Nvidia leak, but according to 343 Industries the information isn't accurate.

A recent database leak at Nvidia listed several unannounced titles, one of which was a PC release for Halo 5: Guardians. The list, accoriding to Nvidia, was never supposed to be public information and that many of the titles listed were "speculative." In response to the leak, 343 Industries have said that this list is not accurate.

Community director Brian Jarrard said in a recent Twitter post that he "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." He went on to say that the listing may have been for Halo 5: Forge, as that mode is available on PC.

This may come as a disappointment for many fans, particularly after the leak instilled a bit of hope into the community. Despite this, 343 Industries has clarified that their main focus will be on Halo: Infinite and The Master Chief Collection. That being said, the door isn't fully closed on the idea:

"Never say never, but nothing underway currently," Jarrard stated.

Halo 5: Guardians was a game well-received by fans and critics alike, so it's no surprise that many were hoping for a PC release further down the line. Halo 5: Forge was a free version of the Halo 5 map editing tool, released for PC on Sept. 8, 2016.

Halo 5 may not be releasing on PC just yet, but Halo: Infinite has been confirmed for a Windows release, currently scheduled for Dec. 8, 2021.
