I'm guessing it's not Halo Wars 2 since that wouldn't technically categorize as a "new" project line?

Does "new project line" mean more than one game?

Though I guess they don't want to step on Gears toes.

Why micro-transactions? When did MS become synonymous with micro-transactions? Halo has never had them.

An argument could be made that a Halo Wars/ODST Sequel would be a new Project for 343i and it would be like a new game for 343i.

Has to Halo Wars 2, has to be! If it is, I hope they unshackle the base-building part and allow us to control the size and build where we want to. Only thing that really annoyed me about HW.

I think its less of a diss against MS and more of a diss against Mobile games in general, though the last Halo mobile game (Spartan Assault) did have Micro-transactions, though they were more of a shortcut rather then a requirement.

Third person action game where you play as Tartarus. The true purpose of the Master Chief Collection's Halo 2 Anniversary was to bring Mr.Mohawk back into the spotlight. 343i please.

An ODST game like Destiny would be cool. Endless strike missions. Level up to the Spartan program. Fight the covenant and flood and fore runners.
