Updated box art for Halo 5: Guardians got fans excited about a potential PC release, but Microsoft has now crushed those hopes.

Earlier this week, the box art for the game was updated on Amazon to read “Xbox One Console Exclusive,” instead of the previous “Xbox One Exclusive.” Naturally, fans jumped to the conclusion that the game was getting a PC release, as this is the label carried by Microsoft’s other first-party games that are on both Xbox One and PC.

“As we’ve shared previously, we do not have plans to launch Halo 5: Guardians on Windows 10 PC,” a Microsoft spokesperson told CNET.

Halo 5: Guardians is available now on Xbox One.
