Halo Wars 2 is the sequel to 2009's troubled yet generally beloved real-time strategy game, and it's on its way to Xbox One and Windows 10 in fall 2016. Microsoft presented Halo Wars 2 as the cherry on top of its Xbox Gamescom conference in Cologne, Germany, today, offering us a short and sweet cinematic. Halo Wars 2 comes from current Halo developer 343 Industries and Alien: Isolation studio Creative Assembly.

The original Halo Wars ended up being the last game for developer Ensemble Studios. After the studio's closing, founder Tony Goodman said that the original Halo developer, Bungie, was never into the idea of an RTS. In 2014, we heard rumblings that Microsoft was hiring for "an established and well-loved strategy franchise," which sounded a lot like Halo Wars 2, at least from the players' point of view.
