Halo Wars 2 announced for fall 2016 on Windows 10, Xbox One

Halo Wars is finally getting the follow-up no one saw coming. At the tail end of the Microsoft 2015 Gamescom press conference, 343 Industries’ general manager Bonnie Ross took the stage to show a teaser trailer for Halo Wars 2, telling an all-new tale in the Halo universe in fall 2016. Creative Assembly, the group behind the Total War series, will be developing the game. Check out the sneak peek below.

Does this mean we’ll get a massive-scale RTS in the Halo universe? Will modular base-building return? Can I still drop the Prophet’s cash-laser on my enemies? There’s a lot we don’t know, but a lot to be excited about. Stay tuned to Gaming Trend for more as we continue our coverage of Gamescom 2015.
