Halo Wars 2 Announced, To Be Developed By The Creative Assembly

Halo 5 may be dropping on October 20th, but that doesn’t mean that it’s the end of the games franchise. Microsoft just announced Halo Wars 2, a sequel to the 2009 strategy game developed originally be Ensemble Studios. So who’s developing Halo Wars 2? The answer may surprise you. It’s actually The Creative Assembly, the UK-based studio which is behind the critically acclaimed Total War franchise. If The Creative Assembly brings the same level of detail and attention to what is fun about strategy games then Halo Wars 2 will surely be one of the best strategy games of 2016.


While the pricing hasn’t been disclosed just yet, we assume that it’ll cost $59.99 just like all other triple-A games on Xbox One. The game will also be released on “Windows 10”, suggesting that the game will not be compatible with previous version of Windows. Not that it should be a problem for most considering that Windows 10 is totally free.
