Despite calls from the PC gaming community, publisher Microsoft has no plans to create and launch a PC-based version for Halo 4.
A representative from Microsoft tells Penny Arcade that, “Halo 4 was designed specifically for Xbox 360, and while we’re always exploring new ways to expand the franchise and share the Halo experience with as many fans as possible, we do not currently have any plans to port Halo 4 to PC.”
The Halo series has been absent from the PC since the second game in the series, which received a much criticized port.
Fans hoped that the current resurgence as a gaming platform would persuade Microsoft to offer the resources necessary for a port.
Halo 4 is the first of a planned new trilogy that will use the same universe and core mechanics created by Bungie.
