Microsoft's Robbie Bach just announced during the company's CES keynote that a demo for Ensemble's swansong title, Halo Wars on the 360, will be made available for download on Xbox Live on February 5.

What's more, he announced that Halo Wars would be out on February 28, instead of the previously-announced March 3, bringing the US release into line with the rest of the world.

Finally, Bach took the time to assure the crowd that the Halo 3: ODST expansion will out in 2009.


Update: Not so fast Bach! Turns out he misspoke and Halo Wars is still hitting on March 3.
