Halo Wars 2 website was a hoax, but we still want to see the game developed

TheHaloWars.com recently caused quite a stir with fans of the Halo Wars title waiting for an upcoming announcement to be made for a sequel. Unfortunately, it turns out the website itself isn't official and was maintained by fans who also want to see a sequel developed. While speculation of a Halo Wars 2 remains, it has not been confirmed by Microsoft with a teaser website as previously reported.

Those who aren't familiar with the name, Halo Wars is a real-time strategy game from the late Ensemble Studios, released back in 2009 on the Xbox 360. It was praised by the Halo community, but left RTS fans wanting more, which is exactly why there's a lot of expectation Microsoft will green light a sequel. It was a solid title, but there was room for improvements and Xbox One could do with a stunning strategy game.
