However, a sequel was ultimately announced for a Winter 2017 release on Xbox One and Windows, bringing back hope that the series might continue even beyond that. Notably, ''VideoGame/HaloWars2'' will be employing a TimeSkip in order to bring the ''Halo Wars'' characters into the ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'' era.
