Revealed at Microsoft’s gamescom conference today, Halo Wars 2 has been announced for fall 2016.

Currently being developed by Creative Assembly, Halo Wars 2 plans to be released episodically for both the Xbox One & PC. While the original Halo Wars was the first true spin-off from the Halo universe, it was praised by both players and critics.
