Here’s everything we know about Halo Wars 2 so far, compiled from information at E3 2016, this summer’s closed beta, and our recent hands-on tour at 343 Industries in Redmond.
Halo Wars 2 takes place 28 years after the events of the first game, during the end of the war with the Covenant. An all-new military junta has risen, known as the Banished, led by a dangerous and intelligent Brute called Atriox. Microsoft, 343i and Creative Assembly are aiming to “reinvigorate” the classic RTS genre with Halo Wars 2. Can they deliver? Only time will tell.
