In a surprise announcement from this year’s X06 show in Barcelona, Microsoft revealed a new Halo real time strategy game for the Xbox 360.
Halo Wars is expected to provide us with a unique take on the familiar Halo universe. In Halo Wars, you’ll take command of human UNSC armies against enemy Covenant forces into an all out war between the races.
The game is being developed by Ensemble Studios, rather than Bungie, who is busy putting the finishing touches on Halo 3. Ensemble Studios created the critically acclaimed Age of Empires RTS series, so they certainly have the pedigree to pull something good off here.
