Five Long Years

Aloysius of Ensemble writes: The last few weeks of working on Halo Wars were quite a blur. Actually, the last several months of working on Halo Wars were quite a blur. I think if you were to ask most folks working at Ensemble Studios to describe an event in their lives from the last year, they'd have a hard time remembering what season the event took place in. For us, it was all Halo Wars, all the time. Blurry days.

Today, I'll do my best to remember the final steps of getting Halo Wars out the door.

The final months of a project are all about taking the previous years of work, mashing it all together into something cohesive, testing the game, and fixing bugs. It's also a time of very difficult decisions. In the name of getting the game out the door, we're forced to eliminate several features, many of which already had months of work put into them. This can be costly (literally), but it helps provide focus to the most important aspects of the game, and gives us a better chance at hitting our target release date. (Halo Wars, Xbox 360)
