No but really wtf!
I can understand a Halo game F2P why not, 343i can try even different things like RPG or MMO whatever but really an FPS Halo shooter F2P only for Russia…
Wow I like 343i but this… how to reduce the hype of a franchise already bad. I mean common it’s Halo, it’s like they need to sell it everywhere to survive, I want my glorious Master chief time back!
Common 343i I still trust in you!
I...

...is this a meme?

No?

Edit* If serious. This isn't 343i, or even directly MS.

Microsoft supporting PC/Windows platform would devalue their Xbox brand. So they are releasing this only in regions which the Xbox brand already has no value. This way they can still target a demographic, but delivering what they want. They can't deliver to PC gamers in the west without hurting their console brand, which is not a positive gain for them.

There is no way this is really Russia only, right? Maybe it will only be on PC in Russia?
Because 343 have been tasked with destroying the Halo franchise. After their Agents at Saber successfully torpedoed The MCC their mission is to sabotage all future Halo games.

First picture

Breakdown:
4-16 players
Graphics on par with Halo 4 based on Halo 3 engine
Power-ups and weapons pick-ups on the battlefield
Rich visual and gameplay customization of weapons and armor
There will be vehicles.
f2p is about weapons, armor and power-ups
Right now developers said nothing about story mode and there is likely the game will be MP-PVP only.

You can't see MCC coming to Windows 10?
That will be very shocking actually, like for real because unlike Fable Legends Halo the MCC is really meant to drive Xbox One sales so that makes it very, very unlikely to come to PC.

Another F2P like Killer Instinct is a lot more likely to come to PC. It's not as big as a release as Halo, Sunset or Forza.

It's obvious Microsoft do not consider gaming on Windows 10 to be nearly as important as the Xbox platform.

I can definitely see this coming over here at some point tied to the Windows 10 store.

Bunch of nonsense
Wow.

I'd play it. Not sure if I'd like it, but I would give it a shot. Hopefully it hits the XB1/US.

MS supporting us PC folks with first party franchises. What's next? Gears of War Online? Forza Online? I'm not happy.
