Halo Community Update 03/29/18 - 'Spring Shenanigans'
While we all patiently wait for info on a new Halo game, GrimBrotherOne took time to fill us in on some Halo Wars 2 updates, recent HCS tourneys and more in the most recent Halo Community Update at HaloWaypoint. Nice to see the Halo stories branching out of the militaristic tendencies we've seen, and the first Halo romance novel heading our way (pretty sure Grim modeled for the cover)!
