Microsoft finished their Gamescom presser this year with a surprise announcement in the vain of what Ubisoft do every year at E3 now. They formally announced Halo Wars 2 to the excitement and shock of all Halo fans who thought the series was dead and buried as soon as Ensemble Studios got closed down. On development duties we have Creative Assembly who are most well known for their Total War series of titles and most recently the very well appreciated Alien Isolation. Surely this means that the game must be in good hands then surely coming from a studio who revel in RTS knowledge. Halo Wars 2 is due to come out Fall 2016, so stayed tuned for more updates as they happen.
