The release of Halo Spartan Assault was met with a good deal of positive reception. The popular franchise made its way exclusively to Microsoft operating systems on PC, tablets, and mobile devices, giving the owners of these products something unique that couldn’t be found elsewhere. While many people were excited to see Halo outside of home consoles, a large demographic were calling for a more conventional release of the top-down shooter, such as on Xbox LIVE Arcade. These people have had their wishes granted, as Halo Spartan Assault has been announced for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 for digital release.
The game will be more than just a straight port. New missions, modes, enemies, and more are to be included in the console iterations of the game.
