The developers are not going to release fresh updates for the second part or take on any other Halo Wars – be it the third part or another project in the sub-series. It seems that the strategic sub-series has been frozen until better times, and the sales of the second part were not high enough.
“It’s not always easy to be open, especially when your answers go against the wishes of the community, but I want to be straightforward: 343 Industries has no plans to support Halo Wars 2, be it content, balance patches, or a release on other platforms. Also, the studio is not going to take on a new game in the series.“.
That is, in general, you shouldn’t even expect Halo Wars 2 to be released on Steam. But you shouldn’t be upset either, because the plot of the second part of the strategy will partially continue in Halo Infinite, which should be released before the end of the year on Xbox Series, Xbox One and PC.
However, 343 Industries notes that it’s never worth saying never – there are no plans right now, but over time, something may materialize.
