Release date overview

Halo Wars was up there as one of the most popular console-based RTS games available, and if there was a sequel it would surely be the most popular console-based RTS game out there. Unfortunately, like Age of Empires 4, Halo Wars 2 has no set release date because the developer of the original was disbanded by Microsoft in 2009.

It's unknown what intentions Microsoft has with Halo Wars, and nobody knows if they want the idea dead, or if they have plans to bring Halo Wars back to life. Halo Wars was the last game made by Ensemble Studios, which still makes it a potential candidate for a sequel.

Where does that leave us?

While Microsoft doesn't seem to have any intentions of making a Halo Wars 2, nobody can actually know for certain for at least another year or two. Some have theorized that they might be making it for the Xbox One, while others claim that they will not make Halo Wars 2, end of story.

No one rumor can be laid to rest until Microsoft either steps up, or doesn't step at all. Halo Wars 2 would be a well received game in the hands of many, which would be a good investment for Microsoft. Sadly nobody really knows exactly what's going on behind the doors of Microsoft, but hopefully Halo Wars 2 will become a reality sometime in the near future.

So in summary

Halo Wars 2 could possibly hit the shelves sometime between 2014 and 2016, but at this point nobody really knows. As of right now the air is only full of rumors of Microsoft's sequel. Based on evidence and current knowledge either Microsoft is going to make Halo Wars 2 sometime soon, or don't get your hopes up for seeing one at all.
