Microsoft Addresses Halo Wars Rumor

IGN contacted Microsoft to see if their was any truth to the rumor, and a company rep told them there's still no PC version of the game planned, effectively nixing any possibilty of cross-platform PC/360 play.

"Halo Wars is being developed from the bottom up for the Xbox 360 and its control scheme to ensure that we deliver a groundbreaking console RTS experience. Given that, we have no plans to develop 'Halo Wars' for Windows Vista at this time," Microsoft said.

I was wrong. I could have sworn they said this was a 360 & PC title, and that it was just being lead platformed on the 360. I still say long run that will be the case...but good news for 360 owners.

And when the sales for a console RTS fall flat on its face because NO ONE who plays RTSes often want to play without a KB+M... out of no where and announcement comes "Halo Wars PC coming fall 2008"

Maybe they can add Mouse and Keyboard support for this game on the 360.

This reminds me of the "there is no plans" for Gears of War XD

i really don't mind if it gets released on the PC,just as long as the 360 gets it first like GOW.
But this is a smart move by Microsoft because if this game is done right it could be one of the highest selling RTs games to date.

Does anyone know what the highest selling RTS game ever is?

Charlie26883464d ago

Will it sell good, yes will it sell a LOT? (Halo 3 like) probably not

besides the RTS on console effect, RTSs in general haven't sold now a days as good as back in the golden days

so I HARDLY think it will ever be one of the best selling RTSs by the simple fact that if we look at recent RTSs (World in Conflict, Company of Heroes etc.) haven't even come close to the sales of Golden Age of RTSs (Age of Empires 2, StarCraft etc.)

remember now a days RTSs SPECIALLY on consoles are becoming a niche market and having the Halo name will help but probably wont do miracles

I know and you know that they will port this to Windows Vista sometime, a few months time or years time it wil happen so I guess I'm getting it on my 360.
