One announcement that came as a huge surprise at Microsoft’s Gamescom 2015 briefing was this, Halo Wars 2 is official.

After many years and a lot of lost hope, Bonnie Ross of 343 Industries took to the stage to announce the new game to be developed by 343 Industries and Creative Assembly, revealing that it will be available for both the Xbox One and PC for Windows 10 in Fall 2016.

The reason this is so surprising and exciting is simply because the original Halo Wars was definitely one of the best games in the franchise, featuring an RTS gameplay style that truly took advantage of the consoles controls.

Check out that new teaser trailer for Halo Wars 2 below.
