Due to 343 having so many issues with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, its decided to delay the Windows phone and Halo spin-off, Spartan Strike, to early 2015.

"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. We can't wait to show you more of Halo: Spartan Strike early next year."
