A 2,300 fan strong petition has failed to change the mind of 343 Industries, which says it’s “unable to commit” to further Halo Wars 2 support at this time. Among players’ requests were a PC-focused UI design, a Steam release, and balance changes.
Perhaps more reasonably, fans asked for a series of bug fixes and quality of life improvements. These include an issue that forces spectators to restart the game, effects applying outside of combat, and more.
“As awesome as all of these requests are, and as much as we personally share these same desires, the unfortunate reality is that we currently are unable to commit to any future Halo Wars 2 continued development or support at this time,” responds 343 in a forum post.
“The same team that is currently working on bringing MCC to PC and Halo: Reach to MCC (the 343 Publishing Team) is also the team that helped make Halo Wars 2 a reality. With the large scope and immense amount of work surrounding MCC for PC, the resources that were previously focused on Halo Wars 2 have been pulled over to help support MCC and Halo: Reach development.”
