If one thing’s for sure about the most-anticipated real-time strategy (RTS) game, Halo Wars 2, is that it will have a huge impact on Halo 6 storyline. This is according to 343 Industries’ Narrative Design Director Kevin Grace.

“It’s absolutely going to have a big impact on what’s coming next,” he said in an interview with GameSpot, but he emphasized that it’s still early to predict what’s going to happen in the future.

“But I can tell you for sure that if you played Halo 5, there are some important implications in Halo Wars 2 that you’ll be able to pick up on. So we’ve already got connections that are built in right now. Like I said earlier, bringing the story up to modern day lets us have some pretty big crossovers if we want to have big crossovers,” Grace went on to say.

According to Movie News Guide, Grace also said that the Halo Wars 2 takes place shortly after the conclusion of Halo 5: Guardians which means that the storyline is set in the present time, 28 years after Halo Wars.

Furthermore, the storyline will also add new cinematics, mission dialogue and combat dialogue experience at every level of the game. Troops information and Spirit of Fire records can also be seen along the way.

Reports also suggested that Halo 6 might feature characters from Halo Wars 2 and vice versa. This means that the plot for both games are interconnected. Famous characters such as Spartan Locke or Master Chief might even have an appearance.

Aside from that, Anders and Cutter are still there but the fate of AI Serena is still unclear. Isabel, a brand new AI is also speculated to be joining the crew.

Meanwhile, details about the gameplay of Halo 6 have not been disclosed as of the moment although 343 Industries is currently working on it.

Halo Wars 2 release date will be on Feb. 21, 2017 for PC and Xbox One while Halo 6, well, there is no exact date yet but it is expected to be released the first half of 2018 on Xbox One and PC.
