@  I_Make_Big_Boom : (23 May 2018 - 08:22 AM) @UNSC Spartan-II Stinkles confirmed it
@  Halo6 Follower : (23 May 2018 - 08:20 AM) E3 in 3 weeks? Damn, that went fast
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (23 May 2018 - 07:19 AM) What I was asking is, if Halo is to show up at E3 this year, would it be on the first day of E3?
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (23 May 2018 - 07:18 AM) That's hilarious :clap:
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (23 May 2018 - 07:18 AM) No way will Halo 6 only be on PC XD
@  I_Make_Big_Boom : (22 May 2018 - 06:49 PM) It's also interesting to see Microsoft wait for so long before hammering down on ElDewrito: conveniently after Update 0.6 came out that made the game the de-facto best Halo Multiplayer on PC
@  I_Make_Big_Boom : (22 May 2018 - 06:48 PM) At the same time, some information about "Halo 6" did drop during the ElDewrito fiasco, which primarily was the "reveal" that if a Halo 6 did exist, it would be completely on PC
@  I_Make_Big_Boom : (22 May 2018 - 06:47 PM) Gears 5 showed up on the Walmart leak, but Halo didn't. Makes me wonder if Gears will be the focus this year
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (22 May 2018 - 01:39 PM) Halo would show up on the first day of E3 though, right?
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (22 May 2018 - 01:38 PM) 2019 seems most suitable. A beta would need to be out either the end of this year, or beginning of 2019.
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (22 May 2018 - 01:38 PM) I don't mind when it drops, as long as we get some confirmation, definitely don't want anything dropping this year though.
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (22 May 2018 - 01:38 PM) I'm sure it will though, with something dropping in 2019.
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (22 May 2018 - 01:37 PM) It's very highly unlikely, but if Halo doesn't show up, I'ma be disappointed. And yes, that's an understatement.
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (22 May 2018 - 01:37 PM) Need this.
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (22 May 2018 - 01:37 PM) E3 is in 3 weeks today.
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (22 May 2018 - 01:35 PM) @Halo6 Follower Good thanks. :yay:
@  UNSC Spartan-II : (22 May 2018 - 01:35 PM) @I_Make_Big_Boom Instruments?
@  Halo6 Follower : (22 May 2018 - 01:14 AM) How's everyone going?
@  343iBot : (22 May 2018 - 12:35 AM) Welcome to the forums, DoyleSrader! :welcome: View DoyleSrader's Profile
@  Halo6 Follower : (22 May 2018 - 12:20 AM) @UNSC Spartan-II I'm great thanks! And yeah, I'd post here more but I have work to do :((

Information surrounding the Halo Wars 2 Beta was leaked accidentally in the Xbox Store today: supposedly ahead of it's planned reveal at Microsoft's E3 conference on June 13th. Said leak apparently was a result of Xbox Director of Programming Larry Hyrb aka 'Major Nelson' following said page.

 

Based on what was shown, the Beta will run from June 13th to June 20th. The full list of info gleaned is below:

  • "Be among the first to experience the explosive return of real-time strategy to the Halo universe in the Halo Wars 2 Multiplayer Beta for Xbox One", the opening paragraph reads.
  • Will run from June 13th, 2016 - the day of the Microsoft press conference, but not confirmed at what time - to June 20th, 2016 specifically for Xbox One. Windows 10 was not mentioned.
  • Requires an Xbox Live Gold Membership to participate.
  • The Beta will be 13GBs in size.
  • Number of players capable of playing the Beta on one console is restricted to just 1 while it's up to 6 online.
  • The Beta is 100% open, and can be accessed by anyone on it's launch date.

 

As an indirect response to the leak the official Halo Youtube channel has begun uploading intriguing yet haunting '101s' regarding the events of the first Halo Wars. What this means not only for the sequel but for the original is yet to be determined. The canonically-first episode of the series can be seen here.

 

Halo Wars 2 is a real-time strategy game slated for release sometime in late 2016 for both Xbox One and Windows 10 - developed in partnership between SEGA's Creative Assembly of Total War fame and 343 Industries. The game will be shown at the Microsoft E3 conference starting at 9:30 AM PT on June 13th.

 

Thanks for reading!  :split:

I bet ya they're going to do the same as they did with the Gears UE beta and drop the "beta available after this speech!" bomb.

First off make the building style like command and conquer so we got more freedom in the game I hate being limited to preset locations. And second give us more bigger unit caps in halo wars 2 but keep it halo then you will get more fans from all over. Like starcraft and command and conquer then the game will be perfect I'm just saying tweak the game play but keep it halo.please that's the only way you are going to sell alot of copys.
