"The fight may have been finished for Master Chief but we all quite rightly know it isn't done for Halo, the Halo license is way too good for Microsoft to let go of. So now it's back, but in strategy form.
Halo Wars was originally meant to be released about 7 years ago instead of the hugely successful Halo, yes that's right, Halo was meant to be a strategy game, a strategy game for the PC and Mac. I think the words from Bungie were "it's like Myth but in a Sci-fi universe". This then changed when Microsoft partnered with Bungie, Bungie then re-wrote the game into a first person shooter called Halo. After five years of discussing how 'cool' it would be if Bungie released a Halo strategy game, here we are waiting for its release."
