4. Halo Wars 2
And now hopes are up for Microsoft’s upcoming Halo Wars 2, which looks like it will improve on its predecessor judging by the game’s latest trailer, which was shown at this year’s Game Awards show. The game is being developed by none other than strategy maestros Creative Assembly, who are famous for their historical PC strategy games like Total War: Rome 2, meaning Halo Wars 2 could end up being a great console strategy experience when it’s released in February next year.
Release date: February 21, 2017. Available on Xbox One and PC.
