Halo 3 For PC Mentioned in Latest AMD Catalyst Drivers

Microsoft says it has no plans to bring 2007′s Halo 3 to PC, but a bit of code mentioned in the latest Catalyst drivers from AMD might suggest otherwise.

Blogger Kn00tcn caught sight of the mention of Halo 3 in AMD’s Catalyst 13.3 beta drivers released a few days ago. The code mentions Halo3.exe as being a profile in the drivers, which throws a little more fuel on the rumor that the game might eventually find its way to PC.

Last month, there was another bit of information that suggested a PC version of Halo 3 might be coming in the future, when a reference to the game popped up in the Steam database. But Microsoft has denied that a PC version of Halo 3 is in the works. A spokesperson for Microsoft told Game Front via email, “We currently do not have plans to release a PC version of ‘Halo 3′.”

Both Halo and Halo 2 are on PC, the latter following at a pretty great length after the Xbox version hit shelves.

Microsoft has been known to reverse itself in the past, but neither the Steam database mention nor the AMD driver mention is rock-solid proof that Halo 3 is on its way to a Steam account near you.

Hmm, that doesn’t seem like showing up a day late and a dollar short at all.

At this point, why should I care?

Halo 2 was released in 06 or 07 I think for the PC.

Game was decent when it came out… But now I can’t see anyone really interested except those who never purchased an 360 in the last 7 years. Not enough people to warrant a port IMO, but, if it plays at 60 FPS, 1080p, and is $20… I might just buy it for nastalgia’s sake.

Well, I still don’t have a 360, and I’d still love to play Halo 3…So yeah, I’ll buy it if it does come to PC. Microsoft has denied the recent rumor twice now though, so I won’t hold my breath.
