Microsoft's entertainment and devices boss, Robbie Bach, revealed during the company's CES 2009 keynote that a demo of Ensemble Studios' Halo Wars
will hit Xbox Live Marketplace on February 5th. Additionally, Bach announced a February 28th ship date for the full game, which fits nicely with what Microsoft had previously announced
. If the demo is anything like most others -- i.e., the earliest parts of the game -- it will likely contain a lot of what we played
just a couple of months back.
