Leaked Halo Wars 2 box art gives us a taste of what to expect from Creative Assembly's RTS sequel.


Key art for Halo Wars 2 has surfaced online thanks to Twitter user @lifelower, unearthing a bunch of clues on what the RTS game will offer. Halo fans were quick to notice the looming Ark in the background and the Brute army, which hints at a post-Halo 3 timeframe. The Ark looks like it's been fired, and even the Scarabs are stylized in Brute color schemes, hinting the game will take place in a fresh timeline. Some speculate Halo Wars 2 could take place in a post-Halo 5 timeline, but the Mark IV Spartans seem out of place.

Microsoft is expected to showcase the new Halo Wars 2 RTS at E3, and a playable demo will be at the show. We'll be sure to update you when more details come to light, but for now we know one thing for sure: Halo Wars 2 looks absolutely awesome.
