  • Halo Wars US release date not 28 February but March

    Right, this is the last Halo Wars release date story we’re doing – well, this week, anyway. It appears that Robbie’s Bach’s announcement that Halo Wars will ship in the US on February 28 was a mistake. The game wil ship at its original date of March 3, whilst the UK and Europe get theirs […]
