In this post, they revealed some interesting tidbits, one of which really caught my attention “the story of Halo Wars 2 explores a vital and exciting corner of the Halo universe directly after the events of Halo 5: Guardians”. So this story takes place right after Guardians, which is interesting. Does this means we’ll be seeing Cortana and the other Created AIs? If I had to guess, the Banished (new faction led by Chieftain) have agreed to ally with Cortana and she’s provided them with weapons ect. With it being confirmed this game takes place right after Guardians, do you think we’ll see Cortana and other members of the Created?
Very interesting, didn’t see that initially. I assumed this took place a few years after HW1. In the comics they found the Spirit of Fire a few years after Halo 3 and it was abandoned. I doubt we see Cortana but that is a very interesting thought. That might explain why that Scarab looks so much more high tech than the previous ones.
