In 2013’s earliest non-story, digital distribution PC platform Steam will not be the recipient of Halo. Despite loose evidence as to the contrary (some Halo titles had Steam pages live), Microsoft’s statement makes it sure salivating PC players are aware of the situation:
“We currently do not have plans to release any ‘Halo‘ titles on Steam.”
MS made that statement to Kotaku, pretty definitive if leaving some breathing room for the future. “Currently” can mean a lot of things, or merely be a a poor choice of words.
Halo 2’s online functionality was recently scheduled for an eventual cut-off (February 15th), and since Halo 2 was listed on Steam, it seemed like an odd choice for the platform.
