Microsoft has quite a few exclusives in the pipeline, whether you believe it or not, and there’s one in particular I keep forgetting was announced last year: Halo Wars 2.
Announced during the Microsoft Gamescom 2015 press conference, Halo Wars 2 is currently in development at The Creative Assembly who are also the developers of the recently released Total War: Warhammer and one of my personal favorites, Alien: Isolation.
We haven’t heard a peep about Halo Wars 2 since the game’s announcement, but 343 Industries has confirmed that the game will be playable at E3 this year. Some other things we’re also teased by the 343 Industries blog post that aren’t ready to be talked about just yet. It’s probably too early for a Halo 6 reveal, but maybe we’ll get a teaser for the final entry in the Forerunner trilogy at E3. Or maybe it’s something else entirely.
Teams across the studio are preparing for the upcoming Hog Wild REQ Drop, the Warzone Firefight release, and even goodness that lies beyond. The Halo Wars 2 team is anxiously gearing up for E3, where the game will indeed be playable. There’s also – well, I can’t talk about more just yet.
Stay tuned for further updates on Halo Wars 2 as E3 2016 quickly approaches. We’ll be at the show and will do our best to bring you further coverage of the game while we’re there. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest updates, be sure to subscribe to our Youtube channel ahead of E3 as we’ll have a ton of video interviews and hands-on content going up there.
Halo Wars 2 is coming to the PC and Xbox One. No release date has been announced yet, but the game is expected to arrive later this year.
