Are you excited for this?

Personally, I am! I really enjoyed Halo Wars and had hoped for a sequel to the game. It’s a long time in coming, but it will be here next year. The good thing is, we have Halo 5 Guardians in the meantime. Whew, though when HW2 comes out, it’s going to be a juggle for me to play both games!

From the looks of the trailer, the story is set near the end of the first game. Could be the same time period, just with different Spartans. I’m happy to see Brutes make a return!

So will you folks get Halo Wars 2 when it comes out??

  1. I’m just as excited for this as I am Halo 5. I’m hoping it is well received by customers so it will get plenty of support .

    • Me too man! Also, something to think about… The Halo Mega Bloks line started with Halo Wars. So we have that game to thank for it (and our wallets hating, LOL).

  2. Sal, those are the same spartan from halo wars 2..This means Spartan red team is still alive and one of the few spartan 2’s

    • That’s what I’ve heard. I thought so, with the emblem on the one of them. But then, they too should have been put into Cryo tubes. So, possibly, this is when they are awakened. In one of the issues of Halo Escalation (Darkhorse comic book), the Spirit of Fire is seen with flood infection forms on board. SO I’m very curious if that will play into Halo Wars 2 at all? I really hope to see the Spirit of Fire again!

    To answer your question, yes, I am excited. I feel that Halo Wars was underrated with some RTS fans feeling the controls were “dumbed-down” and that the game should have been released for PC instead with more options or some Halo fans not really caring about the game because it was a RTS and not a FPS. I personally quite enjoyed the campaign and this sequel will help answer my questions on what happened after the campaign ended.

    It’s a shame that Ensemble Studios can’t work on this game seeing as they were closed not long after Halo Wars launched and while Creative Assembly’s most recent game, Alien Isolation, was well received, that was a first person horror game and their most recent strategy game, Total War: Rome II, did not get a very good reception. I hope Halo Wars 2 will be a good game.

    Also something to note is the pre-Halo 4 Battle Rifle the Red Team Spartan is holding in the second to last picture.

    • My bad, Creative Assembly’s most recent strategy game is in fact Total War: Attila and that game got pretty good reviews.

      And Total War: Rome II did get decent reviews but was plagued with many problems at launch.

      Anyways, Halo Wars 2 looks to be in good hands.
