Halo Wars 2 - Summary

After decades adrift and declared "lost with all hands," the brave crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire are mysteriously awoken above an ancient Forerunner haven known as the Ark. In Halo Wars 2, Captain Cutter and his crew will face one of humanity's most formidable threats yet: The Banished – a fierce and powerful Brute faction led by a cunning and lethal warrior known as Atriox.

Legs were actually okay for this game. I didn't think it would even hit 500K physical units. If they eventually bring this to Steam it would get a big boost in digital sales, Halo Wars 1 is a hit on Steam both in sales and critically.

I hope we get a Halo Wars 3 just because it would be nice to get one of these a generation and people enjoy the story. They probably sell well enough for the budget and they don't have to tweak the gameplay much.

People really surprised? First one couldn't crack 3m on a much bigger install, if this manages to reach 1m I'd say that's pretty good lol

@thewastedyouth - Meanwhile at Bungie Destiny 2 did worse than the original.

A lot of long running IPs decline, I mean that's partly BF1 and CoD:WWII became historic shooters again.

Halo is a franchise that is slowly dying because Microsoft does not know what to do with it. Bungie was the heart of Halo and with them gone no other developer will ever understand the lore, characters and gameplay.

This is a dire sales situation. Honestly didn't expect it to be this bad, don't even think it's first holiday season on release will push many copies of it.

Even though this game is kinda mediocre, I wish it would've sold better. I doubt there's ever gonna be a third.
