Microsoft has teased the next Halo Wars 2 DLC. In its latest weekly blog post, developer 343 Industries said it will probably start talking about the game's next DLC leader character next week.

"We've got some pretty awesome new details about the game's next DLC leader that should be emerging next week, so grab a buddy and be ready!" the studio said.

The first Halo Wars 2 DLC leader, Kinsano, was released in March. According to 343 Industries, new leaders will be released on a monthly basis as part of the studio's effort to keep the game feeling fresh. The new leaders are included with the Halo Wars 2 season pass or can be purchased individually.

In other Halo Wars 2 news, 343 Industries released a small new update for the game this week that fixes a crash scenario and other bugs, including one that was occured with the Kinsano update. The full patch notes follow below, as posted by the developer on its forums.

Crashes / Errors / Performance

  • Fixed an issue where campaign save files from previous versions/patches were crashing on load. The save files now load successfully.


  • Fixed an issue where watchtowers and motion sensors did not detect cloaked units
  • Fixed an issue where cloaking generators would stop cloaking after 15 seconds if the advanced cloaking leader power was fully unlocked/upgraded
  • Fixed an issue where Forge's warthog was not displaying aura VFX and his upgrades were not working.


  • Updated text for Forge's "Rolling Economy" Leader Power to match balance changes made in the Kinsano update (removed text referring to reduced building cost)
