E3 2016: Microsoft officially announces Halo Wars 2

Michael Cottuli

Halo Wars came out years ago, and while it didn’t make the sort of splash that the other Halo games did, it has a very dedicated group of fans. The console RTS brought out all of the best themes of Halo and put it into a totally new genre that’s, frankly, a very good fit for the Halo universe. Halo 2 is a game that we’ve been wanting for a pretty long time, and Microsoft finally delivered on our hopes during E3 2016’s press conference.

You can check out the trailer above and see for yourself what Microsoft has lined up for us in the next Halo Wars installment. The trailer shows off a pretty compelling battlefield between the UNSC and alien forces, and hearkens back to some of the themes of Halo 3. For anyone who enjoyed the experiences in Halo Wars, this title – which will be available for both Xbox One and Windows 10 – is going to be right up your alley.
