Halo 4 won’t be coming to PC, Microsoft has said.

“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,“ a Microsoft spokesperson told the Penny Arcade Report.

Although the first Halo was released on PC in 2003 courtesy of a port by Gearbox, Halo 2 was the last game of the franchise to make its way to that platform.

The news is almost surprising, given that Microsoft is currently giving Windows 8 gaming a big push.

According to a VGCharts estimate, Halo 4 sold 3.1 million copies during its first day on the market – a franchise record.
