Microsoft Announces Halo Television Series


343 Industries, the company that currently develops the Halo franchise, announced at the Microsoft’s Xbox event that it would be creating a Halo live-action TV series and it will be directed by the most famous film director in history, Steven Spielberg.

Spielberg was not present at the event but came on-screen noting that the Halo franchise is “myth making meat.”

Over time different rumours have come up about Halo television series and even a Halo movie Microsoft announced themselves back in 2006 which was suppose to be directed by Peter Jackson. Just recently, prior to the release of Halo 4, a web series called Forward unto Dawn which revolves around the Halo franchise was released weekly starting on October 5, 2012, and was later released as a single film on DVD and Blu-ray. Though it was more like a marketing strategy for then upcoming Halo 4, its visual effects and story line caught the attention of millions of fans.

The Halo television series will have content which is exclusive to the newly announced successor of the Xbox 360, the Xbox One.
