Halo’s heritage is rooted in rich storytelling. However, often when we think about stories in Halo, the tendency is to focus on Halo’s Campaign. The heroic tales of Master Chief traveling across the galaxy uncovering mysteries of the past to protect humanity’s future. We think about Cortana and her hardships, her struggle with rampancy and her sacrifice. The Campaign has many stories, but what are the stories of Multiplayer?
In 2009, Halo Wars launched and gave the community a new perspective on the Halo Universe. We built and commanded entire armies to take down the Covenant and the Flood. We were introduced to new characters such as Captain Cutter, Serina, Sergeant Forge and of course, Professor Anders. We also duked it out on Xbox Live together, climbing the leaderboards. Halo Wars fans have always inquired about the possibility of a sequel, and today, we are excited to finally pull back the curtain.
