It is alleged that the creators of Eldewrito – a fan-made mod for Halo Online – has secretly developed a working PC port of Halo 3. Halo Online is a canceled "Halo 3 derived PC games for the Russian market. "

Halo Online powered by a very modified version of Halo 3 engine and optimized for smooth performance on lower PCs.

Halo 3 PC port
According to sources, who have asked to be anonymous, the group that developed Eldewrito is responsible for this secret Halo 3 PC port. Eldewrito allowed players to play Halo Online all over the world but was later shut down by Microsoft.
With Eldewrito shut down, it is alleged that this group of fans set out to create a working PC port Halo 3, and apparently succeeded. With the latest message about Halo Master Chief Collection coming to PC, this fan-made port can be in trouble from Microsoft's law.
