Halo 5: Forge for Windows 10 will make finding custom games easier after launch

343 Industries has revealed that the upcoming Halo 5: Forge map editor for Windows 10 PCs will get a custom game browser sometime after it launches on Sept. 8.

While the free map editor for the sci-fi shooter will have a content browser at launch, 343 Industries' Halo franchise development director Frank O'Connor made a quick comment over the weekend on the NeoGAF forums that mentions a custom game browser for the first time. He stated:

Once the custom game browser is available I think the community might get crazy legit.

PC Gamer got an official comment from a 343 Industries spokesperson confirming O'Connor's statement:

"Yes, a join-in-progress custom games browser is currently in development for Halo 5: Forge (Win10) and Halo 5: Guardians (Xbox One) and is planned for release in a future content update."

There's no word on how long we will have to wait before the custom games browser is added to Halo 5: Forge, but once it is implemented, it will turn the PC map editor into a full fledged free multiplayer shooter.

  • Oh man! this is crazy! I cant wait
  • Wow.. it only took....  Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo Reach, Halo Anniversary, Halo 5, Destiny... I'm sure there was a couple of other remakes in there somewhere....   I mean, it literally took you 10+ years to finally realize that Halo needs a God damn Custom Game Server Browser?   Tell me why I should bother coming back to this game when it takes you that ******* long to get the hint?
