Let’s dig into everything we know thus far about upcoming Halo Wars 3 game, including possible release date.
Halo Wars 3 is an upcoming highly anticipated real-time strategy video game, set in the Halo universe. Expected to be developed by 343 Industries and Creative Assembly, and published by Xbox Game Studios, the game will serve as the sequel to the critically acclaimed Halo Wars 2. In what follows, we will cover everything we’ve heard so far about the game through rumors, including a possible release date.
While there is no official word on the storyline, fans of the series are already speculating about what the game could entail. The previous games have focused on the conflict between the UNSC and the Covenant, with the second game introducing a new enemy faction called the Banished. It is very likely that the third game will continue with this storyline, with players taking on the role of the UNSC or the Banished.
Another possibility is that the game could ditch the existing plot and focus on a new storyline altogether, with a fresh set of characters and enemies. This would allow the developers to explore new concepts and ideas within the Halo universe.
Is Halo Wars 3 Confirmed?
As of writing this article, there has been no official confirmation from either 343 Industries or Xbox Game Studios that Halo Wars 3 is in development. However, amidst rumors of doing away with the franchise, Studio Head over at 343 Industries offered fans a glimmer of hope as he confirmed on Twitter last month that they will continue to develop Halo “now and in the future.”
Is Halo Wars 3 Canceled?
While an earlier pitch with ground combat combined with space battles was rejected by 343 Industries, a successor to 2017 Halo Wars 2 is very likely thanks to the studio confirming they will indeed continue working on the series indefinitely.
Halo Wars 3 Release Date
There is no official word yet on the development status, but assuming Halo Wars 3 has been in the works since the release of second title in 2017, we could expect to see a sequel in late 2023 or early 2024.
