Halo Week 2015 Bonus Video 2 – Halo Wars 2 Discussion September 30, 2015

Our final video for Halo Week 2015 details one of the biggest surprise announcements that I have heard in quite a long time.  I have a very soft spot in my heart for Halo Wars, the 2009 console RTS which proved that the Halo franchise could work in a medium other than a first person shooter.  While the game’s developers had massive plans for the franchise they helped create, Microsoft chose to close the studio that created it instead.

It seemed unlikely that we would ever see a sequel to Halo Wars.  Then, in a move we never saw coming, Halo Wars 2 was announced at GamesCom 2015!  Join Maniac and diskreader117 as we talk about this announcement, and speculate on what we would like to see in the next game of the Halo Wars series.

And with this, Halo Week 2015 comes to a close.  I hope you all enjoyed the time we spent talking about this beloved franchise, and speculate on its future.

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

Halo Week 2015 is drawing to a close today but we’ve got two very special videos left to wrap this incredible week up.  First off, Maniac and diskreader117 talk about the Halo TV series, a series first announced at the Xbox One reveal two years ago.

The Halo TV series was intended to be the crowning achievement of Microsoft’s Xbox Live  programming lineup, but Microsoft decided to cancel those plans prematurely.  While the Halo series is still officially in production, we have not heard a single update about it since it was announced.  Join us as we try to figure out why.

Stay tuned, we have one more Halo Week bonus video on its way, a discussion about Halo Wars 2.
