Halo Wars 2 Announced August 4, 2015

In 2009, Microsoft began the process of branching out their incredibly popular Halo franchise by releasing two Halo spin off games, one of which was developed by a studio other than Bungie. While Bungie’s Halo 3: ODST would go on to earn incredible sales despite its short length, Ensemble’s Halo Wars never earned the acclaim of its sister game, despite gaining a devoted following.  Halo Wars proved that if it was designed with a controller in mind, an RTS was possible on a console.

Sadly, despite its grand plans for future expansions and DLC, Microsoft shut down developer Ensemble Studios shortly after Halo Wars was released.  Many believed that any plans Microsoft may have had for a sequel ended with the studio’s closing.

I never thought I would type these words out, but today at Gamescom 2015, Bonnie Ross announced Halo Wars 2.

Halo Wars 2 is coming Fall 2016 to Windows 10 and Xbox One.

Sam Lake and Shawn Ashmore took the stage at Gamescom 2015 earlier today to show off an all new gameplay demo for Quantum Break, the first game ever announced for the Xbox One, culminating in the announcement of the game’s release date.

After the demo ran, their presentation concluded with a live-action trailer showcasing the game’s episodic television series, which will run parallel to the game’s story.  Unfortunately those trailers have not been posted yet, but I will put them up as soon as they’re available.  Until then, enjoy this abridged trailer.

Quantum Break is coming April 5th, 2016 exclusively on the Xbox One.
