Halo Wars 2 Gets Physical PC Release via THQ Nordic

Halo Wars 2 is getting not one, but two physical releases for PC players.

Announced in partnership with THQ Nordic, the cross-platform RTS is getting physical editions of both the base game and the Ultimate Edition. In edition, both editions will come with a digital copy of the Xbox One game as a part on Xbox’s Play Anywhere initiative.

Speaking on the collaboration, THQ Nordic Founder and CEO Lars Wingefors said:

After working on so many titles together with Microsoft in 2016, we are stoked to start the year with another partnership. Being able to deliver such a big franchise to RTS and Halo fans alike, the opportunity to buy and own this game in a beautiful physical shape is something we appreciate a lot.

Studio Head for Strategy Games at 343 Industries, Dan Ayoub, also stated:

For fans who love to own the box, we’re excited to partner with THQ Nordic and bring Halo Wars 2 to physical release on Windows 10. THQ Nordic has been great to work with and we look forward to the game’s release on Feb. 21, 2017.
