There were plenty of unexpected announcements at today’s big Microsoft event, at which the Xbox One was revealed to the world. There was the name (really? The third Xbox is the Xbox “One”?), the fact that the device is basically just a relatively gigantic, black rectangle (and not at all sexy and curvy like the Xbox 360) and the very deep TV integration.
But perhaps the biggest shocker was the announcement that acclaimed director Steven Spielberg would bring a live action Halo TV series to the console.
Yep, Halo is finally moving from the video game world to the filmed entertainment world — but not as the movie that has been rumored for years. It will have the man who is unquestionably one of the greatest film directors of all time behind it, though. That’s a pretty nice consolation.
No other details about what the Halo TV series will look like, nor when it will debut, are known at this time. We’ll update this post as more information becomes available.
