There’s “Definitely Room” For a Halo Wars Sequel
Alongside the ever-exciting Halo 4 news trickling out of Game Informer came a brief, albeit compelling discussion about the future of Halo Wars, the off-shoot console RTS by the long gone Ensemble Studios, and the even more compelling possibility of a Halo Wars 2. GI sat down with 343 Industries Franchise Director Frank O’ Connor to prod him for more details.
“Halo Wars, I mean people loved Halo Wars.
It’s not something we’re working on right now, but the Halo universe can support these different experiences.
We try and keep people focused on the main core of our universe, which is ultimately, and more specifically the sequential ones. That’s our main focus and that’s going to be our main focus going forward, but there’s definitely room for new and different types of Halo experiences.”
He continues, mentioning how the studio walks a fine line when drawing borders across Halo experiences, but also making sure they don’t each solely exist inside their own “ancillary bubble.”
Mr. O’ Connor went on to discuss more interesting tidbits of Halo narrative, but for that, you should head on over to the GI article and watch the videos for yourself.
Well darn — this has made me downright nostalgic. I’m going to go shake off the rust and play a few rounds of skirmish for old time’s sake.
