Halo: Spartan Strike was originally supposed to bring the vaunted Halo franchise to PC and Windows Phone 8 later this month. Unfortunately, there's been a bit of a snag. That snag is called Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Since Halo: TMCC continues to have its share of issues with multiplayer, 343 Industries is focusing all of their efforts on resolving those problems first. The result is a delay for Spartan Strike, which is now expected to arrive next year.

"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," reads the Halo Waypoint statement. "As a result, we have decided to move the release of Halo: Spartan Strike to early 2015."

Halo: Spartan Strike is the spiritual successor to Halo: Spartan Assault, the twin-stick shooter currently available on Steam. The original game received mixed reviews, with critics citing decent shooting mechanics and uneven level design.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
