Could we see Halo 5: Guardians released on PC?

When Microsoft announced that both the PS4 and Xbox One would be built on the x86 architecture, PC gamers everywhere rejoiced. This marked the first time that the top two consoles shared the same underlying architecture as the PC. This would (hopefully) pave the way for more games to appear on PC, and for better ports. Well, one seemingly exclusive title might make its way to the PC, because of this very reason.

During a recent interview, Halo 5: Guardian's franchise development director, Frank O'Connor cited that since Microsoft has made such a big push to bring Xbox One and PC experiences together, this might pave the way for the game to come to PC. Because they were able to develop the game on an Intel platform "it wouldn't be the hardest thing in the world to move it to PC and take advantage of PC stuff."

This certainly doesn't count as an official confirmation that the game will indeed see a Windows release. He even went on to say exactly that, as the company doesn't have any specific plans to make it happen. At least not yet.

It's hard to say whether or not the company will indeed release the game on PC. The main reason being that Halo is a big seller for the Xbox One. So the question becomes whether Microsoft wants to risk losing Xbox One sales, in order to gain PC players.
