Halo Wars lead producer Jason pace has to EG that a new company formed from the ashes of Ensemble will be taking care of aftercare for the console exclusive RTS.
“Ensemble is, as I’m sure you know, forming a new company, and they will be helping us support the title moving forward, so: bug patches, any kind of fixes – we’ll have all those folks available to work on it,” said Jason.
“As a studio right now, we’re talking about what we’d like to do to carry this game forward. We’re really excited about this game. We obviously have a lot of ideas of areas we’d like to go.
“We haven’t committed to anything yet, but I believe you’ll probably be hearing something soon.”

Jason Pace, lead producer on Halo wars and keeper of the Halo franchise, told Eurogamer that Microsoft Game Studios is looking to expand the “entertainment property” that is Halo in as many different directions as possible.
“We tend to view the franchise side of Halo as an entertainment property, and something that we hope to expand in many different directions: both through additional genres of gaming and additional ways to tell the story that may not be game-related at all,” said Pace.
“So I think it’s fair to say we’re always looking for new opportunities, new genres to tell the story in. And whenever we find a great fit we’ll pursue it.”
When quizzed on the now fabled Peter Jackson Halo game that was announced 100 years ago at X06, Pace replied: “That I’m not at liberty to comment on.”
