It would have been nice, but it remains a dream. Microsoft has issued a statement that will disappoint anyone who was looking forward to a Halo movie: there isn’t going to be one. It is possible that the rumors about a possible movie stemmed from a misunderstanding about the Halo TV series which is being worked on.
In a statement to Eurogamer, Microsoft said: “We have many projects in the works that offer us the opportunity to bring in new audiences to the franchise, as we did in the past with Halo Legends and Halo: Forward Unto Dawn. We plan to continue telling the Halo story through innovative channels, but there are no plans for a Halo motion picture at this time.”
It should not be too long until a Halo game hits Xbox One, and this is sure to be a runaway success regardless of whether movie is made or not.
So… are you disappointed, or are you content with the upcoming TV series? Or perhaps you would prefer it if games stayed games and didn’t venture down other avenues.Further reading: Halo, Microsoft, Xbox One
