No plans for a Steam release
Despite the title showing up in the Steam database, Microsoft has been firm with their denial that Halo 3 is coming to the PC. The denial was as firm as it could be, with the company saying, “We currently do not have any plans to release any Halo titles on Steam.”
While rumors of a PC release have lingered for a long time, it could be that Microsoft was just trying to gauge the level of interest or that the company really has no plans to bring Halo 3 to the PC.
It would seem, however, that PC gamers are or would be anxious to get their hands on a PC version of Halo 3. Still, we have seen these flat out denials before, only to later be told that it is actually happening. While it isn’t surprising that Microsoft would not at least consider a release of Halo 3 for the PC, the company is apparently stretched in getting new exclusive titles ready for their next generation consoles that are already rumored.
