If the Halo Wars community funded it ...
Hello Robot Entertainment,
I am a fan of Halo Wars and have been since day 1. What your team members did to create Halo Wars during the era of Ensemble (rest its soul) and what you did post launch as Robot Entertainment has been unsurpassed by any developer I have personally seen as a fan from the outside.
I am currently trying to start a movement inspired by Tim Schafer and Double Fine Studios to see if the community could fund a project for 343/MS to reach out and have someone develop DLC content for Halo Wars or possibly come up with a base fund for Halo Wars 2.
This idea is something that is probably not realistic and I understand that - however, I am a fan and am willing to do whatever I possibly can to keep this game, the community, and the creators of such a great game alive.
My GT is XxX Post XxX and I have been a Halo fan since day 1. I have played every single game ever made in the Universe for countless hours on end. One of my favorites to this day is still Halo Wars. I have spent countless hours dropping ODST, using a quad mac on a flying prophet, or beaming bases from the hills with my starred scarab while teammates harass with gauss hogs.
I don't see Microsoft ever coming up with the money to invest in making a Halo Wars 2, so I would like to have the community put up money to create new maps and/or gametypes for the existing Halo Wars.
If the recent activity at kickstarter.com (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/66710809/double-fine-adventure?ref=s...) has shown anything about the gaming industry - fans have a lot of power to help fund a sequel for something they want.
I believe with our demand and ability to come up with money we could potentially get something built for our community to have for free and help stimulate growth in the Halo Wars community again.
I propose the following
Microsoft/343 creates a KickStart campaign and announces it to the Halo Community for free Halo Wars DLC.
Microsoft uses the money that comes in to build a series of new maps for Halo Wars OR if the funding is large enough - use it to create a prototype for Halo Wars 2.
It's simple - see how much of the community really wants another one. Let US let the money talk! If you allow this I will put up the first $1,000 USD.
