Microsoft products unplug ad Halo Wars 2, the second installment in the spin-off series of the Bungie and 343 Industries franchise developed by The Creative Assembly. The series is set between the beginning of Halo: Combat Evolved and the end of Halo 5: Guardians and tells the story of the United Nations Space Command.

The community manager announced the end of support John Junyszek on the blog Halo Waypoints:

“It's not always easy to be open and transparent - particularly when the response isn't what the community expects - but we want to be straightforward: 343 Industries currently has no plans to continue work on Halo Wars 2, including content updates. , balancing, porting the game to other platforms or creating a new game in the series. We will continue to monitor the game and make sure everything works as expected. "

The reasons behind this choice are obvious: use all possible resources on other projects such as Master Chief Collection e Halo Infinite, the latest installment in the series coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S. Junyszek however, reiterates that this is a "temporary situation", with Microsoft and in the future could resume the series, perhaps setting it in the narrative universe of Infinite.
