I've been thinking about Halo Wars 2 and come to the conclusion that a release is possible. And even been thinking about a logical release date. Halo Wars was a great game, in my opinion the most entertaining RTS game out there. But when you come to think of it, it's not the gameplay that made it a huge success, it was for the fact that it was a Halo game. Now, if Halo Wars 2 was ever to be released, it would most likely be tied close to another Halo game release. I'm doubting we will see Halo Wars 2 as a "standalone", but rather Microsoft will build up on the Halo brand and get another hype started. So that they could maximize the potential in marketing success and sales. Halo Wars was released a between 2 big Halo titles, Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST. Everyone was excited about Halo and even people who had never played RTS games bought Halo Wars just for the "Halo" untop. So, in my opinion. If we are ever going to see another Halo Wars title, it's going to be close to a release of another Halo title.

    Posted by: MAXPWN197 Posted by: SEAL Sniper 9 Posted by: Doctor Spartan Halo Wars wasn't a bad game, but it's like the ugly step child of the Halo games. It sold poorly compared to the other Halo games and the majority of fans act like it never even existed. It has a very small cult following but a part from that the game under performed. By adding 'Halo' into the game, it generated extremely high expectation. So much so, that the game was destined to be die. The game probably would of performed better if it wasn't a Halo game, since no one would of expected it to live up to the previous Halo games. I hate to be negative but Halo should stay as an FPS. It really should be obvious why. Halo Wars was a great game and a lot of people loved it. Just because you didn't like it doesn't mean there shouldn't be another HW's game. I think it'd sell even more then last time. Btw, it was the best-selling console RTS. Just sayin'. And I hate to be negative, but Halo Wars was waaay better then Reach. It really should be obvious why. and this is why you are only a member, cause bungie doesn't promote people how dis their games Wow. It's about post count, activity and not getting banned; it's an automatic system.

It really should be obvious why. Halo Wars is the most basic RTS at best. Have you actually played Starcraft 2? You'd be in for a reality check. If Halo Wars was loved by 'a lot of people' then why is game not in the top ten LIVE list. Last time I checked there were only 1000 people playing the game still. Meanwhile Halo: Reach is 3rd with at least 1 million players per week. Halo: Reach is the inferior game is it? Not according to the rest of the world. Also do you know why Halo Wars really was the 'best-selling console RTS', because it was called 'Halo' Wars. The only reason why Halo Wars sold so well was because Halo was in the name. If it wasn't Halo game then it would of undoubtedly tanked. Also 'best-selling console RTS' isn't exactly the greatest merit. RTS's generally don't sell much on consoles, so it isn't exactly a great record to achieve. Meanwhile Halo: Reach was the 3rd highest selling game of 2010 according to NPD. Halo Wars was a failure, both from a business sense but also among fans. There is only a small group of fans who actually liked the game, and an even smaller group of hardcore Halo Wars players who thought the game was the second coming of our lord and saviour. A sequel to Halo Wars would most likely tank, because of the majority of fans hated the original. The majority of fans are not the smartest group. This is why countries has got a tiny population to run it while the rest can enjoy the stay.

There is enough people to play it: 6000-10000, even 12000 in weekends. It was a success, just because people don't play it doesn't mean it sucks. Also, whoever said there should be no Flood is crazy, because i think The Flood should be a playable faction,

I'd like to see where "Nearly all halo fans hated Halo Wars." Not many people playing it? Sure, but how old is it now? Lots of games have been released since it came out.

    They need to add flood as a playable race. They need a covenant and human campaign. And finally, they need things more complex, keeping the Good control scheme while adding in proper base building and a working unit system (the rock paper scissors system just didnt work)

    i liked the gameplay of Halo Wars, but i think that if they made a sequel that they should take a few ques from End War in terms of the control scheme, i just thought the end war had the simplest easiest to use control scheme for a console RTS ever. for Halo Wars 2, it should jump maybe 10 years into the future after the first game, and again be a character focused story line, but have the infantry unit be a bit closer to existing canon, also this time, NO FLOOD!!!!, ODST and Reach survived just fine without those green little -blam!-s.

    Posted by: xZcNx MarcWagz it'd be cool, imagine a halo wars game with kinect, where you play as Admiral cole or something like that? No. Never, ever. Admiral Cole should not be touched upon by sich players, he should maintain his position in canon as the best there is.

    Posted by: BlackKnightKanos Posted by: SEAL Sniper 9 Posted by: Finnish_Spartan Everyone was excited about Halo and even people who had never played RTS games bought Halo Wars just for the "Halo" untop. That's why I played the demo, which led me to getting the game. If Halo Wars was not Halo, I doubt I would have even considered that game. Even so, the gameplay was still fun and pretty good. I think it needs improvement, but still good. It introduced me to RTS strategy games. Now, I love 'em. I think it'd be awesome to have a Halo Wars 2 and an ODST 2. The game also had one of the best CGI cutscenes ever! Andursss

    I really wanna see a new one. Halo wars is probably the best RTS on xbox and the best i own, but the superunits are way OP, the entire game is biased towards the UNSC, the resource collecting and lack of freebuild means that the ONLY tactic is to build as fast as possible. I want all these things fixed.

    It would be great if 343 or someone made a Halo Wars 2 or just another Halo Wars RTS. In my opinion, I thought Halo Wars was the best Halo.

    I love and still play Halo Wars but I don't think there will be a second one, and if there is it'll be in name only. Although I hope I'm wrong.

    Posted by: grey101 Seeing how the next book in the forerunner saga is going to deal with the shield worlds i have a large feeling that halowars is going to go from "un-canon" (and the game is canon) and "crappy" to being mindblowing once the importance and backstory is explained. Hell, i should probably made a thread on that. hahaha thats true! I bet a lot of the people here will suddenly add Halo Wars to their own little fanon once the Cryptum sequels will deal with the matter. Kind of how at first lots of Legends episodes were garbage, but once Cryptum and Cole Protocol came along those episodes were suddenly cool as hell... Im talking about first dismissing Elite culture and "Forerunner structures" and later accepting it...
