Halo Studio 'Listening' To PC Fans, But Focused On Xbox

Don't get too excited

I'm beginning to worry that John Halo, main character of Halo: The Adventures of Halo Main Character John Halo, doesn't love us anymore. Once upon a time PC gamers got Halo 1 and Halo 2 - and once upon a more recent time, the middling Halo: Spartan Assault - but we haven't seen a real Halo game in eons. "Pretty please?" we plea, imaginations running wild with green armor men prancing about, pirouetting like cybernetic teenage mutant ninja turtles. And yet, even with Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the way to theoretically get everybody all caught up before Halo 5, developer 343 replies with a noncommittal, "Eh, maybe someday." Le sad.

343 head Bonnie Ross explained to Eurogamer:

"Right now we're focused on Xbox One. We've been on PC before, and Dan [Ayoub, 343 executive producer] has had games like Halo: Spartan Assault on there."

"We're listening to the PC fans, but right now this is all focused on Xbox One."

So that's disappointing. The Halo games aren't world-endingly amazing, but they're solid and compulsively fun shooters. Moreover, 343's stance continues the Microsoft family trend of saying, "We care about PC gamers - we really do - but we're not actually gonna do anything about it."

It's all just disappointing. Not really surprising, though. Oh well. I guess for now I'll just make do writing my fan fiction about John Halo's saucy dealings with his constant companion and holographic ghostfriend Windows Mobile.
