Of course, this listing doesn’t specify the consoles upcoming Halo titles will launch on. But, with the recent rumors surrounding exclusive Xbox games coming to other platforms, future games in the franchise releasing on PlayStation 5 seem plausible. Credible journalists have already confirmed that AAA Xbox IPs like Starfield and Hellblade 2 are probably jumping ship and releasing on competing consoles.

Similarly, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, the upcoming action-adventure title from MachineGames, is now rumored to be releasing on the PS5 a few months after its launch on Xbox Series consoles. All of this is part of Microsoft’s new strategy for exclusive first-party titles and even though it isn’t official yet, an announcement is probably coming next week.

Halo Infinite is among the games that leakers are predicting will be released on the PlayStation 5 with the Master Chief collection also being mentioned in the rumor mill. Only time will tell if the future of Halo includes Nintendo Switch and PS5, but for now, you can only play the franchise’s games on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC.
