Rumor: Halo Wars 2 is Set During Halo 5 or Post Halo 4, Artwork Leaked

Halo Wars 2: Ultimate Edition

Microsoft’s E3 press event plans have already been leaked, we know the company is bringing Battletoads, Age of Empire and Halo War 2.

Now, according to a new rumor we were able to get our hands, Halo War 2 is going to be set after the events of Halo 5. The speculation was fueled after an artwork got leaked online allegedly from Halo Wars 2.

Halo Wars 2

You can see an Ark, the core is damaged, the brutes are back. (Spoiler Alert) As for the year 2555 there is no flood on the ark and USCN has its forces on the Ark. Halo 5 takes place in 2558 and there was no sign of the Spirit of Fire, the crew is reported still MIA as of 2558.\

This means that either the game is set during the events of Halo 5 or post Halo 4; that is of course if this artwork isn’t created by a fanboy in his mom’s basement.

Last time we heard anything about Halo Wars 2 from higher ups was when Phil Spencer gave an update 3 months ago. However, Microsoft’s E3 press event will bring plenty of news regarding Halo Wars 2 so we’ll have to wait till official word is out.

Apart from Halo Wars 2, we are hoping to hear more about Microsoft’s plans for unifying Xbox and Windows 10 gaming. New announcements are expected such Forza Horizon 3 (probably for both Xbox One and Windows 10), there is a new rumor going around about Dead Rising 4, Battlefield 1 is teaming up with Xbox One so expect to hear about the World War 1 shooter as well.

Halo Wars 2 should comfortably release this Fall, we are hearing that the game is already in pre alpha testing.

Tune to E3 2016 later month for more on Halo Wars 2 for Xbox One and PC.
