The next Halo game will not be coming to the Xbox console

, | News

Halo: Spartan Strike, a follow-up to Halo: Spartan Assault, is coming in December. IGN reports that the twin-stick action shooter will continue the story from the first game. Set during the events of Halo 2, Spartan Strike will feature new Promethean enemies and vehicles. It will not have microtransactions on any platform, a feature that drew criticism for Spartan Assault. Vanguard Games, the developer, is working with assistance from 343 Industries. The developer says there are “no plans” to bring it to Xbox 360 or Xbox One.

Halo: Spartan Strike will be available on Windows 8, Windows Phones, and Steam for $5.99 on December 12th.
