    This is awesome news! But there is already rumors of this coming to Android and IOS after a short WP8 & W8 exclusivity. If so, that would be a MAJOR FAIL by Microsoft. Let's hope they don't do that to us.

    Now this is the type of exclusivity (even for alittle bit) that WP8 needs to make the switchers go over the fence. Good work MS!

    Yea that would be fail, if X1 doesn't sell well are they going to release X1 games on PS4? They need to stick to their guns and promote their own products.

    Where have the rumours come from? iOS and Android users?


    The Halo franchise is the jewel in Microsofts gaming crown. It isn't going anywhere.

    Yes I agree 100%. I remember when SmartGlass was released on iOS and everyone thought it was brand new. Then I installed it on my iPad 2 and found it runs better and has more features than on my 920. Don't pull this sheet again Microsoft, it's getting old.

    day 1 purchase for me. wish there was co-op, though =\ should start a petition to encourage 343 to include a co-op mode AT LEAST over ad-hoc (local wireless). over wi fi would be sweet, and over 4G would be cool too although i could imagine how much data that would waste.

    Meant to hit quote, free (accidental) thanks from me, lol!

    But I believe and hope you're right. I've just been reading it on various forums. From Android, IOS, and Windows Phone users. So I don't think it's a biased thing, probably just an out of control rumor. But I still hope they don't release it to any other OS. But honestly wouldn't be surprised if they did, down the road.

    Its wishful thinking from ios and android users. It states clearly on the PR "Only on Windows: Available only on Windows 8 PCs and tablets and Windows Phone 8 devices". I dont know how anyone can get from that quote that its coming to any other platform. And even on engadget's story they mention that the ideas wasnt even being entertained, so NAY, nothing for non-Windows platforms. As it should be. If they can leave out Windows 7 users I see no reason why they cant leave out ios and android users.

    Microsoft has probably now realised that all divisions of the company have to work together to be successful in the mobile world that seems to be the direction computing is going and any advantage you can give your platforms is not something you just give away. They will gain much more in exposure and having it as a selling point in the long run to attract users than they would make selling it on other platforms now and thats why its best kept exclusive.

    Well there was once a rumour WP8 was going to get instagram... The way MS have been on the offensive against Apple and Android lately I can see this game being the continuation of the offense especially as its been kept quiet for so long and also ties in nicely with the 8.1 updates etc.

    Hopefully the next few months will be all about MS saying "This is what we've got, deal with it!"

    They'd be preparing for war if they bring out Windows 8/RT and Windows Phone versions of Forza, Gears of War, Fable and Quantum Break! It'd be epic.

    Just found a post on neogaf that has left me incredibly worried.

    It is a dual stick shooter. The controls work really well - it detects if your thumbs are 'drifting' and keeps the control scheme centered to accomodate drift. Hard to explain, but it just works. You do things like double tap to theow grenades, board vehicles etc. Also supports M/k and yes there will be joypad support shortly after launch.

    Also kind of weird that people are surprised we are supporting our own platforms first.


    NeoGAF - View Single Post - Halo: Spartan Assault confirmed for Windows Phone 8 - Developed by Vanguard Games

    post is by 343's frank o Connor

    the bit that concerns me is the last bit where he says about supporting their own platforms FIRST.

    hell no, come on Microsoft, never release this on ios or Android, seriously this is getting ridiculous.

    I just hope I'm reading into this too much.

    looks like Microsoft is slowly responding to the series of rants...articles about the terrible state of WP gaming by WPCentral just last month.
    now time to decide between Halo and Nova. both are so expensive

    i'm bummed that it isn't coming to windows 7 though

    Same old anti-MS crap in that thread, I really hope MS isn't stupid enough to release this on non Windows platforms. They are not really going to miss out on some huge revenue stream like some would like us to believe and its much more beneficial to Microsoft's platforms as a whole if this is Windows only.

    This game will be a huge success.

    So think about what this does for mobile games in the future. I can see Activision acquiring a new team for mobile and crunching out COD based dual stick shooters year on year multiplatform, EA crunching out Battlefield games. Think of the complete awesomeness of future releases now 343 and MS have shown the way. Even if this does stay on WP and WP8 iOS and android wont get left out as other companies are bound to see the possibilities and extend their franchises.
