Halo 5’s Forge Map Creator Is Coming To PC (But Not Halo 5?)

One very cool part of the Halo series is coming to the PC this year, but you’ll still need to own an Xbox One to take full advantage of it. It’s a step in the right direction! In fits and starts, Microsoft seems to be taking PC gaming more seriously with Windows 10. In that spirit comes Forge — Halo 5: Guardians Edition. The title might give you the idea that Halo 5 is coming to the PC, but that’s not the case. (Yet.) Instead, it’s a free version of the Forge mode for PC.

Free? Yup! Here’s the full announcement.

The PC version comes with keyboard and mouse support, the ability to run at 4K resolutions, the ability to test and play maps on Windows 10 and the option to share your creation with all the people on Xbox One.

This sure seems like a step towards the Halo series coming to PC — Forza is doing something similar — but right now, Microsoft’s taking baby steps.


  • YES! this is gonna be amazing, and not just for forge (though that’s mainly why I’m excited) but for the possibilities of haphazard custom games via forge ON PC. Never thought I’d see the day when halo would return to pc, nostalgia trip here we come…

  • Given that it will let you test the maps on Windows 10, the actual game can’t be far off.

    • I think if Microsoft were smart and actually came through with their whole universal ecosystem stratergy

      All they literally need to do is allow every First party title to work on both PC / Xbox One and or follow up with their Universal Platform idea by making Xbox one run full Windows 10 if possible, if they can pull it off it will change the game entirely

      Halo 5 coming to PC is a good step in the right direction from them, now we need Age Of Empires 4 🙂
