They want us to make maps with limitations on PC, it doesn't make sense to use forge when there are better editors on PC like UE4, Unity. I seriously doubt that Forge will start allowing custom objects/textures or increase the horrible size limitations of what someone could make.
But unity is a much harder program to use and you cant add those maps to Halo 5 can you?
Hope the next step is the full game.
I don't have time to waste in forge.

From the very beginning, community creations have been central to the Halo experience. From stacking up grenades underneath an unsuspecting Warthog to multiplayer movie-making, the Halo sandbox has always been fertile soil for millions of moments and memories created for, and by, the fans.
In 2007, Halo 3 upped the ante with the introduction of a map manipulation tool called Forge, and quite literally changed the game forever, enabling a cascade of creativity, from new map and unique game type experiences to interactive art – all created by the community itself.
When Forge was redesigned from the ground up for Halo 5: Guardians on the Xbox One, it opened the door to even more inventive community-created content, pushing the boundaries even further to give players more power and control than ever before, and removing as many constraints as possible to allow for the creation of incredibly high quality maps. From the stunningly beautiful maps created by WyvernZu, to the hilarious mini-games from TurbTastic, we’ve been continually blown away with the countless crazy and creative experiences that Halo fans have made. As a famous Spartan once said, however, “I think we’re just getting started…”

Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re bring this same spirit of creation and collaboration to the PC later this year with Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10. Best of all? It will be absolutely free. In addition to the evolutions already present in the mode on Xbox One, Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition for Windows 10 will include some exciting new features designed specifically with PC users in mind, including:
  • Keyboard & Mouse Support – For the first time ever, Forgers will have the option of using a keyboard & mouse allowing for more precision control than ever before.
  • Increased Resolution – Support for multiple resolutions including 4k.
  • Test and Play with Friends – Enlist the help of Friends to help build, test, and play your Forge creations on Windows 10.
  • Build on Windows 10 and Publish to Xbox One – Experiences built on Windows 10 can be published to and played on Xbox One, opening the doors for countless new experiences to be enjoyed by players all over the world.
If you’re already finding yourself excited about the incredible possibilities that are opened up by expanding Forge to the Windows 10 platform, trust us, you’re not alone. 343 Industries UGC Director, Tom French, and his team are already chomping at the bit to get these new creative tools into the hands of the community.

“Forge on the PC will finally give the mouse/keyboard editing precision the community has always been clamoring for. On top of that, an updated and optimized UI geared towards mouse interactions makes a lot of the inputs in Forge easier/faster than before.
Since we released Forge in Halo 5 we’ve seen so many amazing new things come from it – from weird mini-games we could have never anticipated to meticulously crafted maps that are even approaching the visual quality of internally built maps. The team has continued to wonder what we’d get if we could put Forge in the hands of as many people as possible, and making it free on Windows 10 literally gives the chance to anyone who wants to jump in and try their hands at building a cool new map for Halo 5. I’m excited to see what the future content from the community will bring!”

We’ll have a lot more to share about Forge – Halo 5: Guardians Edition on Windows 10 later this year, but look for even more exciting updates coming to the Forge experience in Halo 5: Guardians on the Xbox One in the coming months – including new environments, advanced file sharing capabilities, new pieces, palettes, props, and much more.
As always, stay tuned to HaloWaypoint.com and @Halo for all the latest on Forge and rest of the Halo universe.

HOLY HELL.
This is genius by 343i! Still waiting for Halo 6 to pc to be announced as well with cross platform support.
I hate it when people say "x would ruin halo", but honestly, cross platform matchmaking would legitimately ruin Halo. You'd get the PC aimbotters, etc. It would ruin the game for console gamers, and be self cannibalisation by Microsoft. I think they will continue with Halo games on PC separate to on Console, but have Xbox the official console for comps.
Hell yeah. Now I can actually get into Forging.

Wait, does this mean we might get Halo 5 on PC. If so, I need to ditch my Xbone, PC Gaming Master Race all the way!
Halo 5 is practically a pc game already since there is no split screen and the mechanics ate a pc gamers dream come true.
Pretty sweet.
Also, love the username.
Sweet this will allow for so many more options and control i cant wait to see the custom games forgers will be able to create.
I have BF4 on PC and Xbone. It looks amazing on PC compared to xbox, but I won't play it. Too many hackers cheating. If you enjoy getting shot through walls by invincible enemies then keep asking for Halo on PC.

Edit: I know they are talking about forge, that's cool, but please not the core game.

I completely agree! Cross platform should only be between consoles but if the entire game comes to pc the mods are going to be insane! Looking forward to those cortana mods😉

HOLY HELL.
Indeed.
Its going to be game changing... that is if this game and its population lasts that long
Was playing with Forge today for the first time and was thinking to myself 'how good would a mouse and keyboard be with this'.

Awesome news!

At this rate Microsoft might as well release Halo 5 on PC.
I hope they do release it on PC. I would sell my Xbox in a heartbeat if they did, besides Halo I only really enjoy the multi platform games anyway.

Damn. Is it really that bad ? Maybe I'll stick with Xbox after all lol.

On topic this is pretty awesome news for forgers, I might have to give it a shot on PC.
who wants to join my beggining clan? we are trying to make a group for playing griffball when the actualization comes
this is an amazing update that finally lets me be on halo at school
Very cool! This will be awesome for Forgers and it will expand the Forge Community to people who love to create but may not play Halo! Good job 343! Making this open and free for Windows 10 users is CRAZY COOL!
