Microsoft will soon release their Halo App for Windows 10 PC, allowing Halo fans to download their games as well as pick up the latest news, videos, and tutorials in a single easy to reach place.  

On this app Halo 5: Forge will be coming to PC on September 8th, with the app acting as a launcher for all future Halo games on PC. Next year this app will also be the place where Halo Wars 2 and Halo Wars: Definitive Edition will launch on Windows 10 PC. 

At this time Microsoft has not announced any main series Halo game for PC, though rumours have been circulating that Microsoft has been considering PC releases for both Halo 5 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.  

 

      Yesterday we shared some exciting news about the upcoming release of Halo 5: Forge for Windows 10 PCs, including – perhaps most importantly – the fact that it will be available on September 8 as a free download in the Windows Store. As part of that announcement, we also slipped in some news about the new Halo app that we will be releasing with Halo 5: Forge. I’m Brian Albrecht, EP for the Halo franchise (people who hang out on Waypoint probably know me better as Me11ow Sparky), and today I’d like to take a few moments to talk about this new Windows 10 PC Halo experience. 

As we were working on Halo 5: Forge for Windows 10 PCs, we asked ourselves, “how can we do more to bring the Halo ecosystem closer to our fans on PCs?” and “how can we do more to open the door now and in the future for our PC gamers?” The Halo app will be the quickest and easiest way to find, download, and launch all Halo games that are available on Windows PCs.

It will also be a great way to get the latest news, videos, tutorials, featured content, update notes and more from the Halo universe on your PC. Our vision is for the Halo app to become the best way for our fans to get the latest information and details about all of our games, both past, present, and future.

  Microsoft will soon release their Halo App for Windows 10 PC  

 

The Halo App for PC will likely become a Halo-oriented Storefront for PC, acting as a place where PC gamers can access the Halo franchise while at the same time not directly using the Windows 10 Store, which currently viewed negatively by most PC gamers. 

Hopefully, this is a sign that Microsoft is planning on bringing the Halo franchise to PC in its entirety, as I am certain that a lot of fans of the franchise would love to play the games with higher framerates and using keyboard and mouse.

Wish we could get actual Halo games on PC.

Graphically they are screaming out for high res, 60+FPS, Increased FOV, High res textures etc....

MS could even make it a Windows store and Windows 10 exclusive and I bet it wouldn't impact their XB1 sales, It would just bring more customers in that don't buy consoles.Quote

It would also mean that they would have to be on Windows 10... Which I'm not for example.Quote

But A LOT of people are and going by the Steam hardware survey as an example most gamers are now on Windows 10 with more and more making the jump everyday.

Companies can't keep catering to the declining numbers of older OS users as that just holds things back.

Eventually when DX12 becomes the mainstream API people will have to go to Windows 10 anyway, Apart from nostalgic purposes I don't see the point in staying on an old OS, Maybe if you're running a business with software that flat out can't run on W10 then yeah ok but I can't understand the average user/gamer refusing to move forward onto superior software.Quote

Get with the times then. You want Halo on PC it'll be W10 only, if you refuse to get on W10 well that's your fault tbh. They won't cater to you, MS will promote W10 as much as possibleQuote

Sounds good. I'm already on Windows 10 and would happily pay to get the entire Halo franchise on PC. We're even getting Forza so I'm actually pretty happy with where this all heading. Now where's my Crimson Skies reboot?Quote
