Total War Developer Making Halo Wars 2

After many years, Halo Wars is getting a sequel. At its Gamescom press conference, Microsoft announced Halo Wars 2, the follow-up to the 2009 real-time strategy game. It's in development at Creative Assembly, the studio behind Alien: Isolation and the Total War series.

The first Halo Wars was developed by Ensemble Studios, which was closed following the game's release.

Microsoft only showed off a short cinematic and announced that the game is coming fall 2016 for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. To me, this is incredibly exciting. I absolutely loved the original game, and I'm excited to see what Creative Assembly does with Halo Wars 2.
