Yesterday when Microsoft announced the Xbox One, the company also reported that Steve Spielberg will be producing a live-action series that is based on the Halo game series. The series will be available for download through Xbox Live and will be created through Spielberg’s partnership with the game’s developer 343 Industries.
Spielberg is credited with directing hit movies like Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan, Minority Report, Catch Me If You Can, and Lincoln. ?For me, the Halo universe is an amazing opportunity to be at that intersection where technology and myth-making meet,? said Spielberg.
The series will also contain exclusive interactive content for the Xbox One based on the game. Unfortunately, very few details about the TV series have been announced. Halo was previously made into a live-action web series called “Halo: Forward Unto Dawn,” but this is the first time that an adaption of the game is being made into a TV format.
