Fans of Halo Wars 2 can rejoice and book tickets for E3 2016, as the title will be ready for testing at the event this June.
343 Industries and Creative Assembly showcased the game at the Electronic Entertainment Expo last year (E3 2015), but the audience only got to see a video trailer of the game.
The latest news now comes via Halo Waypoint, where community manager Andy Dudynsky announced that the team behind Halo Wars 2 is preparing for this year's E3, adding that players will be able to sample what the sequel brings.
"The Halo Wars 2 team is anxiously gearing up for E3, where the game will indeed be playable," Dudynsky said.
Previous rumors had hinted that Halo Wars 2 will see the gaming systems this fall, and the recent announcement is a good reminder that the developers are keen on keeping their promise.
Aside from info that gamers will get to experience some of Halo Wars 2, only few other details surfaced. We do have some bad news for players whose rigs run on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, because Halo Wars 2 will be a Windows 10 exclusive. However, the game will be playable on Xbox One, so owners of Microsoft's latest console can be at ease.
As the E3 2016 draws near, the leaks and rumors about Halo Wars 2 are intensifying. According to a Redditor, the game sports numerous play session logs. This suggests that a Halo Wars 2 beta variant should roll out in the near future.
If WCCFTech's report is to be believed, the Redditor has provided reliable tips before. However, we recommend a healthy pinch of salt, as such rumors remain groundless until they get official confirmation from the gaming company itself.
Halo Wars 2 is purportedly bringing significant differences in gameplay compared to the original video game.
Just as a reminder, Creative Assembly is the developer that made possible the successful horror game Alien: Isolation, so the company knows a thing or two about sci-fi-related tension. The coders also rolled out commended titles such as Empire: Total War and Total War: Rome 2.
With E3 2016 set to open its gates in only a few weeks, we are confident that Halo Wars 2 news will keep pouring in. Stay tuned.
