According to a leaked listing on the Xbox Live Storefront Halo Wars 2's Open Beta will begin on June 13th and end on June 20th, though at this time we do not know if the OC version will also be getting a similar beta on Windows 10. 

The developers of the game have already confirmed that the game will have a fully playable demo at E3. It is expected that this multiplayer beta will be announced at E3, with feedback from the beta influencing the balance of the final game. 

Being a Microsoft published title the game will likely work using the DirectX 12 API and will almost certainly be coming to PC as a Windows Store Exclusive, using Microsoft's controversial UWP program along with it.   

 

The Halo Wars 2 team is anxiously gearing up for E3, where the game will indeed be playable.

Halo Wars 2 is being developed by Creative Assembly, the UK-based developer behind the Total War Series and Alien Isolation. Creative Assembly has shown with Total War: Warhammer that they are more than capable of creating a great strategy game with 3rd party IP, leaving expectation high for what they can do with the Halo franchise with a more traditional RTS style game.

As with a lot of games that are on multiple platforms, there will probably be a separate Beta for the PC version.Quote
