If you didn’t already know, SEGA owned studio The Creative Assembly (Total War series), was the developer behind Microsoft Studios’ Halo Wars 2 on the Xbox One and PC. It seemed that the team was ready to move on to Halo Wars 3, at least according to Brad Wright, senior concept artist for Creative assembly who posted rejected art work for the project on his ArtStation account (now removed). Originally the site’s discription said:
“Surprisingly I got the all clear from Microsoft to show this cancelled pitch material. We did some proposals for Halo Wars 3, I had to introduce space battles into the game style, as well as having your capital ship as your home base, to prep your ground forces.” – Brad Wright, Senior Concept Artist The Creative Assembly.
Oddly enough it has changed to a generic description of “Halo Wars 2 additional work done for Creative Assembly for Halo Wars 2. Property of Microsoft”, then after deleted. Brad has yet to explain why the sudden change, but I assume that maybe Microsoft had a change of heart with him sharing unfinished concepts for a unannounced sequel. I hope Brad Wright doesn’t get in trouble for sharing the concept artwork, because it looks really awesome. What are your thoughts on the Halo Wars 3 concept pitch? Intergalactic space battles? Yes, please.
