Halo Wars

Halo Wars is the first real-time strategy game in the Halo Universe. It begins in the year 2531, 21 years prior to Halo: Combat Evolved, during the Covenant eradication of the Outer Colonies in the Human-Covenant War. The game was developed by Ensemble Studios, and is an Xbox 360 exclusive, like Halo 3. Unlike other Halo games, Halo Wars is rated "T" for Teen, downgraded from "M" for Mature given to previous installments. In the U.K, the game is a 16+ game, while its predecessor Halo 3 is a 15+ game although this is due to the two games using different rating boards (PEGI is stricter than the BBFC). Downloadable content and support is currently being developed by Robot Entertainment, a studio founded by ex-Ensemble Studios employees after its closing.

As of February 28, 2010 (or March 1, 2010), Halo Wars and support was transferred from Robot Entertainment to Halo Waypoint, it was stated that Waypoint would provide "exciting plans", but this has yet to come to fruition.

On November 5, 2010, The Halo Wars Leaderboards were reset by popular demand.

On November 16, 2010, it was announced that and Halo Wars Online Stat Tracking will no longer be supported. Along with the act, 343 Industries & Halo Waypoint plans to release one final Title Update (TU5) to fix a cutscene bug in Theater from TU4, and to unlink/disconnect the game from the site (Moving Forums to Halo Waypoint's). This change will occur December 15, 2010. Although the stat tracking feature may be restored in the future as a possibility, it is highly unlikely.

On December 8, 2010, 343 Industries and Halo Waypoint announced a reversal in their decision, citing they were "...always uncomfortable with the idea...", and "...decided that the current plan of action was not in line with how we have always intended to support Halo games and the Halo franchise in general." This is not a delay, and only means that the Halo Wars Forums will continue to be merged with Waypoint's and Title Update 5 will come out some time soon.
