Halo Wars a "Huge Success," Sequel Is Possible


Halo: Wars was such an overwhelming success that a potential sequel—possibly on the Kinect—could be in the cards for 343 Industries.

The studio's creative director Frank O'Connor talked to CVG about the RTS game and its future. "The funny thing about Halo Wars is it actually beat our sales forecasts, so it was a bigger success than we expected," he said. "It was a big critical success and it's still the number one selling RTS on consoles this generation."

O'Connor didn't rule out the possibility of a sequel, but he did say that one is not on the team's radar right now. "In that regard it was a huge success but is the will to do a sequel there? Who knows," he said. "We could do something that works on Kinect, for example. There's no will against it but we're not working on it right now."

Halo: Wars is the best-selling console real-time strategy game to date, moving one million units through March 2009. Would a sequel be such a bad idea?
