I still think that a top-down Halo game has plenty of potential. Of course, the only thing we can hope for is that it is not as muffed as the previous one.

The last one was decent, for what it was. The co-op missions at least were kinda fun.

Finally!

Cut the crap and port Halo Wars to PC, please.

And no micro transactions I hear.

Wonder if they'll actually release it with 360 Controller support this time.

Cool, now bring The Master Chief Collection to PC

Edited by ShaggE

I'll be way into this if they cut the partnership with Sir Michael Transactions. That really put me off of the first one.

And Steam. Don't forget. For all those who hate the idea of it being Windows 8 only.

And yes, there is controller support.

A follow up to last years hottest release

TBH - I'm glad they are going back to this idea. I think it's got legs - they just fucked it up with the weird F2P shit. I just want Renegade Ops but Halo, is that hard?

Come on Microsoft... you know you want to release the MC collection on PC.

Just do it already.

Why can't they just port over Halo Wars instead of more twin stick shooters? :(

Posted by Nashvilleskyline

@patrickklepek It's also releasing on steam same day... so yeah, MS is publishing a game on PC and not on the Xbox One, the plateforme that actually has a controller with 2 sticks... as in, twin stick. Am I the only one seeing this as one of stupidest thing?

"The follow-up is coming to Windows, Surface, and Windows Phones later this year"

Patrick, Surface is just a tablet that runs Windows... this is like saying "Angry Birds is coming to iOS, iPad and iPhones"

The sequel that no one asked for!

Or did they?... At least I think they didn't.

Nearly all of the games they are using are PC ports anyway!

As much as the last one was 'ok,' I really hope they take their lessons and improve on it. A top-down Halo could be really cool, but not if its an arcade-styled score-assault with micro-transactions that muddy the game.

Posted by Acornactivist

I hope this isn't another micro-transaction cash-grab like the first game was, because this concept could be really successful.

I suspect that it is.

Posted by PanaMusica

If they get rid of the microtransactions this could pretty cool

This one has "Games With Gold" written all over it.

I for one will not be purchasing as it will most likely be free at some point.

Posted by Koobz

Looking forward to 2015! Can't wait for 12 straight months of Crimson Dragon and Halo: Spartan Strike as the free Games with Gold titles.

Not sure about the game but I liked the music in the trailer.

As a big Halo guy I say fuck this garbage.

Posted by Dooleh

Oh boy! I hope it's Windows 8.1 only. I need a "great" game like this to convince me to "upgrade" from windows 7.

Posted by Mr_Creeper

Not a fan of Halo, but I might just give this one a go.

Edited by Budwyzer

Isn't the mobile space just jam-packed with these kinds of games now?

Posted by MildMolasses

Let's get down to brass tacks here, fellas. Where's Halo Wars 2?
