Halo Wars survived Microsoft's assault to take down its leaderboards late last year, showing that the game still has some fight in it. 343 Industries, Microsoft's new internal studio handling the Halo franchise, tipped its cap to the console RTS, calling it sequel- and even Kinect-worthy.

That said, there are no plans to take this game in either direction. "It was a huge success," 343's Frank O'Connor told CVG, citing Halo Wars' status as the top selling RTS on this generation of consoles (an admittedly small field.)

But "is the will to do a sequel there? Who knows. We could do something that works on Kinect, for example," O'Connor said. "There's no will against it but we're not working on it right now."

In the same talk O'Connor played down talk that a European studio is cooking up a rumored Halo 1 remake. But if anything, those rumors, and the fast and vociferous defense of Halo Wars, show the community still has plenty of demand for all things Halo.

"The appetite for this stuff is huge as long as the quality is there - and that's the way that we should approach it," O'Connor said.

Oh man!  Well he couldn't have had pretty pictures on his too right?...............right?!

Update:  I went to the thread in question and it appears while he does have pretty pictures they aren't quite as good as mine and he doesn't have a poll so its all good!!!!

*plus mine is from a different source than his so we'll just pretend like this is breaking news.

Good news. Halo Wars was one of my favourite RTS, only bested by few legends on PC, definitely one of the best I've played on consoles. Hopefully this'll get even more support and even more sales, as long as they don't cock it up obviously... also ability to play with normal controller will make it a day one buy for me :D

Also Battle of Reach RTS would be nice. Considering that according to the book somewhere around 6-7 different Spartan squads were deployed on Reach and it would be interesting to follow them, even if they were going to the demise, taking down dropships of covenant ships etc - just a campaign concept :p



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

halo wars was decent
