Halo won’t hit Android any time soon

It should come as no surprise that Microsoft wasn’t about to release their full-fledged first-person shooter Halo game to the mobile universe straight away. Instead – as was planned and on the books for months – the first Halo game to be released to the mobile universe was Halo: Spartan Strike, and it was released for Windows Phone, Windows 8, and Xbox One and 360 all at the same time. Now we’re seeing both that game and the new Halo: Spartan Assault appear for iOS, PC, and Xbox One all at the same time.

But what about Android? At this time, there aren’t any (public) plans for Halo of any sort to be released for the Android ecosystem. Curious, isn’t it?

It may just be that a third top-down Halo will be required before Microsoft can extend the love from one platform to another.

For now, you’ll have to jump on your old iPod touch or iPad – because god knows you don’t own an iPhone if you’re a super big fan of Android, right?

Have a peek above at some iOS gameplay of the newest title Halo: Spartan Assault, and get excited about how you won’t be able to play. Unless you’ve got an NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet and want to stream it from your PC, of course.
