Halo Wars 2 beta

Halo Wars 2 is currently in development for PC and Xbox One at 343i. The studio is packed with future projects and Halo Wars 2 development so one may think that working on Halo Wars 2 for PC and Xbox One at the same time might be difficult for the team.

However, that is not exactly the case.

According to Executive Producer David Nicholson, Halo Wars 2 development for both platforms is going smoothly and they had a fantastic foundation in the form of the original game, Halo Wars, that released for PC and Xbox 360.

Our thought started with basically that we just have to make the best RTS game that we could,” he said, “so we had a fantastic foundation with the original Halo Wars [and] we wanted to build upon that, address the things that players loved and some of the feedback they gave us not only through the original Halo Wars but also through the beta, and we wanted to make sure that the core RTS gameplay was very solid, and I think that works on any platform.

He went on to say:

We then look at the interface and the controls and as I say the original Halo Wars did a fantastic job of bringing RTS controls to a controller. We’ve built upon that, we’ve extended that and also we’re putting in PC specific variations on the controls which give some of the PC players some things that maybe they’re more familiar with from their other PC RTS titles

Halo Wars 2 is hitting shelves on February 24.
