A live-action Halo series or movie feels like one of those properties in development long enough to be written off, but the head of Microsoft’s Xbox division doesn’t appear to agree. Long after Showtime and Steven Spielberg were said to be involved, a Halo TV series is apparently still in the cards.
Microsoft hasn't had very much to offer on the proposed live-action 'Halo' TV series executive produced by Steven Spielberg, only that it would likely debut in fall 2015 to complement the released of the gaming' series fifth installment 'Guardians.' Now, we have at least some idea how the two properties might interact, and whose story the 'Halo' TV series might tell.
We heard rumblings of the proposed 'Halo' TV series from Microsoft's Xbox and producer Stephen Spielberg for quite some time, the last of which suggested the serial adaptation would land on Showtime. Now, with the announcement of the 'Halo 5: Guardians' game, new word suggests the TV series will bow around the same period, fall 2015.
It's been forever and a day since we've heard about any real momentum behind the proposed 'Halo' TV series under Stephen Spielberg, which originally had been set as the first of Microsoft Xbox's original content, and now we may know why. A new report suggests the 'Halo' TV series might land on Showtime instead, as part of a unique deal that has taken time to put together.
Over the weekend, Production Weekly reported that a new 'Halo' film was in the works with Ridley Scott producing. Everyone got excited because, yay, 'Halo' movie. Unfortunately, it's not true.
Earlier this year, Microsoft dropped a tremendous bombshell on the TV industry in revealing that it would follow in the footsteps of Netflix and Amazon to create its own original content, most notably a Steven Spielberg-produced 'Halo' live-action series, following so many cinematic stalls. No news has emerged of the effort since, but is Microsoft prepping its new series for an Xbox One launch in early 2014?
Microsoft announced earlier in 2013 it would be bringing original programming to its Xbox consoles sometime in the future, but new details hint the first of these shows could arrive by the end of the first quarter of 2014.
The latest post on the Halo Bulletin shows 343 Industries subtly hinting at some new titles coming down the chute.
Virtual personal assistants are all the rage these days, with Siri leading the charge in interactive phone and tablet technologies. Not wanting to be left behind, a new report has surfaced indicating Microsoft is prepping one of its own.
Remember that nifty teaser trailer for Halo shown at E3 2013 a few weeks ago? Well, Microsoft Game Studios vice president Phil Spencer has spilled the beans on whether or not it's Halo 5.
