Halo Wars 2 PC Teaser
Created by Creative Assembly, the people behind ‘Total War’ series, Halo Wars 2 has generated a lot of interest among PC gamers. It may not be the diluted Xbox 360 version but is expected to be a proper strategy title that will launch only for computers running on Windows 10 and the Xbox One console.
While Windows 10 may allow you to stream Halo 5 Guardians to a computer, it will be much better if Microsoft brings the first person shooter to computers where it belongs. If not now, maybe in a year or so!
