Microsoft has confirmed once again it has no plans to release the full version of its Xbox One shooter Halo 5: Guardians for Windows 10, and that the upcoming launch of the game's Forge map editor for the OS doesn't mean it has changed its mind.
Microsoft announced earlier this week that Halo 5's Forge editor will be released for free for Windows 10 later this year. In addition to allowing PC users to make maps for the shooter that can be played on the Xbox One, Microsoft also confirmed that any Forge and Arena maps in Halo 5 can be played online in the Windows 10 Forge editor with friends.
