The lights are on
We know that Microsoft needs to come out of the corner swinging when the company takes the stage a week from Monday at E3. That means lots of exclusives to woo gamers back in after some rocky communication last week.
A new Halo title certainly would make it harder for a segment of the population to say no to Microsoft. Fusible has noticed that domains for Halo: Spartan Assault have recently been registered by MarkMonitor, a company that helps protect brand identity.
The registrations for Halo-SpartanAssault.com (and .net), HaloSpartanAssault.com (and .net), and SpartanAssault.net were initiated on May 30, 2013. Fusible also points out that Halo: Spartan Assault is the name of a piece of fan fiction written in 2009.
After the company needed to initiate action to recover XboxOne.com and XboxOne.net from a domain squatter, it could simply be protecting itself. We certainly wouldn't mind new, diverse takes on the Halo universe, though we likely won't ever see that Halo Wars sequel we've been hoping for.
Stay tuned for our E3 coverage next week to find out if Master Chief (or other Spartans) share the stage at the Xbox One keynote.

I just want a remake of halo 2, everything different than that will be really boring for me.
You can even take the clothes off my back, just give me halo wars 2!
i would scream and jump for joy to rejoin the crew aboard The Spirit of Fire.
I personally would like to see a Halo third person shooter of some type, but a Halo Wars 2 would be cool. They need to make some exclusives outside of Halo on the account of the series becoming stale. But I'm sure it'll be nothing but Halo Kinect Assault: Kinects Revenge.
Please be Halo Wars 2.
More Halo :)
Halo Wars 2 finally? I hope it's like it.
I would really go nuts for a Halo Wars sequel. That would definitely be a huge point in Microsofts favor when it comes to which console I'll be buying.
Honestly, I wouldn't have much of a problem with a Halo title this year, or next. I can understand why somebody might want at least three years between each release, but if the game turns out good, then I think it makes up for the small amount of time since the last release.
GIVE ME HALO WARS 2
the only main halo game i hadnt beaten until recently was halo 2, i got a pc copy and beat it on my computer, i want to see halo back on the pc, and i would have gotten halo wars if it had been
