No Halo Games To Be Released on Steam

A NeoGaf forum poster apparently leaked a list of PC games that will be released for Steam. Fans got excited when they saw the first three Halo games on the list.

Although Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 have been released on the PC, they are not currently available on Steam. Halo 3 on the other hand still remains as an Xbox 360 exclusive. As excited as fan got, Microsoft has now squashed his rumor entirely.

Microsoft responded by saying:

“We currently do not have plans to release any Halo titles on Steam”.

This comes as bad news for PC gamers that wanted the famous trilogy and download it via Steam.

    Steam’s worked really hard to squash the rights of their consumers. Sure, the games are cheap on the service but you do not own them. Simple as that. You just have a temporary license to download and play Steam games, you don’t own a copy. Steam’s taken away my ability to buy most new PC games at retail without any form of DRM, and because of that I just quit PC gaming almost a year ago. For that, I’ll never forgive Steam.

    If the Halo games release anywhere, it’ll be through Microsoft’s Games for Windows Live service. I applaud Microsoft’s lack of support for their competitors with a monopoly on the industry, though I certainly don’t care for Microsoft in most other ways. The industry needs more competition if the consumers are to have the best possible experience.
