Updated Halo 5 boxart hints at a planned PC release 

Microsoft has started to issue new copies of Halo 5: Guardians with updated boxart, listing the game as an “Xbox One Console Exclusive” while also advertising 4K Ultra HD support and Xbox One X enhancements. 

In previous boxart iterations, Halo 5: Guardians was listed as an “Only on Xbox One” title, making the game’s move to being an “Xbox One Console Exclusive” indicative of a potential PC re-release. 

Rumours of Halo 5 on PC are almost as old as the game itself, with Microsoft themselves listing the game with Windows 10 support online earlier this year. While Microsoft has since removed this listing, calling the listing an “error”, the term “Xbox One Console Exclusive” suggests that the game is releasing on another, non-console, platform. 

The term “Xbox One Console Exclusive” has been used before, in games such as Quantum Break, Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2 all featuring the same heading on their boxart. These three examples all released as Xbox One Play Anywhere titles, which means that they released both on Xbox One and Windows 10.

While Microsoft has not officially confirmed that Halo 5 is coming to PC, there is undoubtedly enough game listing errors floating around to back up the hypothesis. Is this new boxart another error from team Xbox?
