Also, long-shots only!
On a related note, Gears of War 4 is rumored to be heading to PC. Aaron Greenbern, marketing lead of Xbox, indirectly hinted at the existence of Gear 4 on Windows 10.
While speaking about Microsoft’s plans for Xbox and Windows 10, he said:
That said, as the first party we will continue to invest in the creation of great console exclusives like Gears of War 4, ReCore, Halo Wars 2 and similar titles. We believe in building one big ecosystem of games.

It looks like games are going to called “Microsoft exclusives” in the future, not Xbox or PC exclusives. One big ecosystem sounds good but they have to handle the proceedings smartly or run the risk of damaging Xbox user-base. PC offers many benefits including free online, open hardware etc.
Bringing console exclusives to PC means players may start showing more interest in PC and leave Xbox behind.
What’s fair is that we get some PC exclusives on Xbox One, that’s the proper way of creating a big ecosystem of games. However, most PC games aren’t designed for consoles.
