    Depending on the story of Halo Wars 2, I'd probably be fine with the Halo 6 crew and the crew of the Spirit of Fire meeting up.

    So does this mean the ark survived the end of Halo 3?
    It got wrecked but Tragic Solitude, the monitor of Installation 00, immediately got some constructor sentinels to start rebuilding the ark using the strip mining moon. There wasn't enough material, so in 2555 the monitor gets the brilliant idea to get people to reactivate the ark portal so sentinels can fly through it and mine earth for resources, which is the plotline of Halo: Hunters in the Dark. This plan fails and the UNSC set up bases on the surface, hoping to get the constructor sentinels back online to fix the ark.


    This happened two years before Halo 4, which happened a year before Halo 5, so it's been 3 years since the book. I'm guessing the UNSC figured that shit out in the mean time.

    aw it doesn't embed like the newsbot does

    anyways, quotes
    So why no Halo 5 on PC? Spencer says that Microsoft and 343 Industries are looking to the future. "Honestly the answer with Halo 5 is, I can go take last year’s game, rework it to go on PC, or I can have 343 look forward in what they’re going to go do," said Spencer. "You could say I’m cheating a little bit by doing a half thing with putting Forge on PC, because we kind of have the tools working on PC to see what happens, but this is what we did with Forza, with Apex. I said, 'This isn’t a full Forza game. Going forward, we’re going to bring our Forza games to PC complete.'"
    As further confirmation, when asked if there would be any ideological reason Microsoft might not release the next Halo on PC, Spencer gave us a firm "Not at all."
    Speaking to PC Gamer yesterday, Spencer said he's "not about putting content only on console to manipulate Windows gamers to go buy an Xbox."

    So it will be interesting to see how 343 fixes the Halo Wars plot. Smart AI only last 7 years pushing a bit more before they hit rampancy. By Halo Wars 2 setting, she will have been alive for 29 years (2530 - 2559). Sure they could say that she is gone by then, but the after credits scene says otherwise, "Captain wake up, something has happened". Also i wonder how they'll explain that flood form and the planet they were supposedly on impact with. Hopefully it's none canon just like 343 killing off Spartan Team Black

    Maybe I'm out of the loop, but could she have just... turned off? Can AI do that in Halo?

    At the end of Halo: Saint's Testimony, an AI on the verge of rampancy is put into a form of stasis. As far as I know something like this has never happened before in Halo's lore, so it may or may not be the case.

    Co-Op Campaign confirmed for Halo Wars 2.

    The reason they changed Cutter and Anders was to make them more realistic. In Halo Wars 1, they were essentially handdrawn with no real reference, here they're based off their actors.

    Also I guess info about something called the "Warzone Firefight" update or whatever.

    And a new Forge canvas



    Edited:

    Oh, and the forge preview image has a Hog with a Req Skin on it, so I guess Req stuff is finally hitting Forge?

    From Halo 3 to 4, cortana was not in stasis or anything, which is why she started going into rampancy. I suppose an AI could split themselves off to hold off rampancy, but it could only be for so long. From what we know of there were no other smart ai on the Spirit of Fire, so we'll have to see what excuse is made, maybe Anders comes up with something.

    damn, phil spencer acknowledged H:O in his interview with PC gamer

    Interviewer: It’s a quite popular genre on PC.

    Spencer: [Laughs] Yeah, totally. And we put Halo Online on PC, like we were doing some free-to-play work, investigating how things were—we’re bringing Halo 5 Forge over to PC....
