Halo Wars 2 Announced August 4, 2015Posted by Maniac in Game News.
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.
