Had been set for December 12.
In one of the few sure signs that Microsoft has an idea of how troubling 'Halo: The Master Chief Collection's online experience has been and continues to be, the sequel to 'Halo: Spartan Assault,' 'Halo: Spartan Strike' has been pushed back to 2015.
From Microsoft, "Earlier this year, we announced Halo: Spartan Strike, our latest touch-based top-down shooter for Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Steam, will be available on Dec. 12. While we’re excited about this all-new Halo experience, our commitment to resolving the current matchmaking issues in Halo: The Master Chief Collection remains the top priority. As a result, we have decided to move the release of Halo: Spartan Strike to early 2015."
Granted, the two games ought to have very little to do with each other, but with this move, it seems that Microsoft understands that now is not the time launch another Halo product, and that various resources are being directed to both 'Halo: The Master Chief Collection' and the upcoming 'Halo 5: Guardians' beta. When 'Halo: Spartan Strike' was announced as a Windows 8 title, it was described as being a way for players to unlock rewards in 'Halo: Master Chief Collection.'
