Halo Wars 2 could work on Kinect, says 343

A Halo Wars sequel could work on 360 motion cam Kinect, Microsoft's internal Halo studio 343 Industries has said.

Speaking to CVG this month, 343's creative director Frank O'Connor called the original consoles RTS "a huge success" in its own regard and didn't rule out chances of making a sequel in the future.

However, the studio isn't working on a follow-up to the strategy game right now, he said.

I don't think it would be a good idea but let the market place decide. As long as the traditional method is still available then have at it. Halo wars actually sold really well and many people continue to play it on line.

I'm really sick of listening to 343 studio's tho...let me rage on this for a bit...they as in 343 studio's do NOTHING. They knew that Reach was going to be Bungie's last Halo game for YEARS and they have nothing this year but a remake of a ten year old game...O_o

I think M$ made a big mistake going with these guys and should of handed the franchise over to Epic studios and cliffy B to continue the fight.

343 studios is in analysis paralysis mode. There should of been a Halo 4 with master chief this holiday and a movie to go along with it. Just look at them talk about Halo sold really well maybe we will make a second part??? Why maybe, just get it done already. It sold really well then they closed ensemble studios right afterward...O_o

They need to stop talking s*** & make Halo Wars 2.

Announce it & I'll beat Halo Wars for a 4th time in preparation for Halo Wars 2.

Halo Wars 2 for Kinect? That would be very interesting to see what they can come up with.

@ cez of rage

343 Studios is NOT doing a remake of Halo. It's already been confirmed. The name of the Developers currently eludes me but 343 Studios is NOT doing the reboot.

Ah Found it. Saber Interactive will be handling the Halo Reboot.

343 Studios is Making The next iteration of Halo, possibly called Halo 4 but they are NOT doing the Halo CE Reboot.

Another full fledged Halo title this year? No thanks.

I'm still having a ton of fun with Reach. I'm not ready to move on yet.

"However, the studio isn't working on a follow-up to the strategy game right now, he said."

It says it right in the article. Actually, you didn't even need to click on the article, it says it right on this page.

I can't believe the laziness of some people that they just read the title and that's it.

Maybe if you weren't so lazy, you would have seen my post indented under cez's post, hence it's a reply to him bashing 343 for not releasing a new Halo this year. Please pay more attention next time.

Halo Wars 2 with the Kinect as an option would be amazing. No need for a mouse, just wave your hand ect...

Of course keep the traditional controls in there for people who don't have Kinect, I personally would love to play it with Kinect.

Halo Wars is my all time favorite RTS game, glad to see 343 thinking outside the box.

You end up with an arm like a tennis player.

Bathyj2846d ago

Of course it could.

Finally an idea for a game that will actually appeal to real gamers and will work with Kinect.

Not just shoehorning motion into a game for the sake of having motion, but this could actually make the gameplay better and more intuitive. I think its a great idea.
