    Microsoft will launch its biggest Xbox One exclusive games on the PC.

    While the company has already confirmed that users will be able to stream Xbox One games to a Windows 10 computer when the new OS launches this summer, PCR understands that games currently listed as exclusive to Xbox will eventually launch on PC as full standalone titles.

    Several industry sources have confirmed the news to PCR.

    "It's a rumour which I know to be true," said one senior PC gaming industry executive.

    "Microsoft are going to be focusing a lot more on the PC gaming side than previously, and they’re also going to be bringing a lot of Xbox platform exclusives to Windows as well.

    "So this includes some of the biggest franchises in the Microsoft stable like Fable, Forza Motorsport and Halo. They're all forecasted to start coming out on PC in the future."

    The latest games in those series - Fable Legends, Forza Motorsport and Halo 5: Guardians (pictured) - are all due for release this year, with Halo 5 set to launch on October 27th. Microsoft has previously confirmed that Fable Legends will arrive on PC, too.

    If Microsoft did this they'd lose a noticeable portion of their Xbox One sales. As much as PC players want Halo for the PC, there is more money to be had in selling Xbox Ones and Halo there than on PC.

    It's fine if you use a legacy OS, just don't complain you'll have to pay to upgrade it when support for it starts dropping for your stubbornness

    You are aware that as a user of Windows 7, you will be able to get Windows 10 for free, right? Why would you not chose to upgrade then, considering dx12 will be exclusive to win 10.

    ...that's what the article's about, though? It mentions the fact that you'll be able to stream games from your Xbox, but the rumour is about a standalone Halo title.

    Not that I know anything about the rumour but you just didn't read at all.

    Was playing Halo 3 on the 360 a day ago and even though i still absolutely love the gameplay, the servers are just dead. I mean the peak hours have 400-500 people playing it.


    A million players when the game got released and after that it always balanced on a steady 800 to 900 thousand players for the upcoming 3 months. I miss the olden days..

    The markup is about 4x too complicated, the stylesheet is a shit tip and the JS bloat is silly.

    Everything in this line seems like it was made to be satire. So there's no word from Microsoft about this anywhere? Seems like they would pretty much be shooting their XBox division in the dick with a move like this.

    They released Halo games on Xbox consoles, then they remastered those and sold them again. I doubt it would make any sense if they would remaster it again for Xbox Too, but IMO it is still not too late to sell "the same" product for the third time on the PC which is a Microsoft platform. Look at GTA V; it sold like crazy on old consoles, on new ones, and on PC, three times they sold the same thing with a 1 year gap and nobody complained. It was a brilliant move, there is no way it would sell that well if it released on all platforms at the same time.

    Random gaming blog no one's ever heard of? Check.
    Quotes entirely from anonymous sources which cannot be verified? Check.
    Artricle makes bold and outrageous claims that are guaranteed to gain traction on gaming forms? Check.

    Seems to be more of an SEO operation.

    I'd kill to get the remastered collection on the PC, and this is coming from a guy who only kind of wants to play through single player/cooperative again.

    Still seems like baseless speculation as usual, but I would absolutely love it if Forza and/or Halo came out on PC. Those two games are literally the only reason I want an Xbox One, and it's because those are literally the only games I want on Xbox that I haven't bought one.

    I think everyone who wanted to buy an Xbox one already did. Releasing Halo 5 as an exclusive to it won't change much

    That's arguable, I know tons of people that are buying their Xbox One at costco and returning that and the game when the 30 day return is up. Also, it's really doubtful they're going to be paying for Xbox Live if they're only using it for one or two interesting exclusives (at the moment, it's Quantum Break and Halo). At least Playstation has a larger library of exclusives that people want to play and PS+ ensures they're always paying.

    Halo Custom Edition has around 1300 at its peak a day and that's a 12 year old PC game.

    Halo Online is closed beta/leak software that wasn't meant to be played by the mass public whatsoever (or get anywhere outside Russia) so I think it's safe to say Halo Online is not completely representative of what Halo 3 on PC would look like. I think that goes without saying.

    I'd play the shit out of Forza. Not going to buy a lump of plastic just to play a few exclusives. Staying extremely skeptical though.
