343 Studios has confirmed via Halo Waypoint that their upcoming title Halo: Spartan Strike
for Windows 8
and Windows Phone
, originally planned for release on December 12th this year
, has now been pushed back to a murky "early 2015".
While the developer has expressed their excitement at getting this new touch-screen Halo
experience to players as soon as possible, they simply cannot ignore the current matchmaking problems in their other recent Xbox One release Halo: The Master Chief Collection
. The issues encountered in that game appear to be requiring all hands on deck to resolve, leaving little resources for other projects such as Spartan Strike
. We will bring more news as it becomes available.
