Microsoft Confirmed – Halo 4 is the Most Expensive Game They’ve Ever Made

This may not come as much of a surprise to all of you, as I’m sure that you, like me, look at every video, screenshot, trailer and just see dollar signs everywhere.

If there’s one thing that you can say for sure about Halo 4, it’s that it looks expensive. Well, you were right; Microsoft Studios head Phil Spencer, in an interview with Polygon, confirmed that it’s “absolutely” the most expensive game they’ve made thus far, adding that “nothing’s even close.”

Personally, I’m really happy about this. The Halo series is a three billion dollar franchise, and I’m glad to see it handled with such care.

I’d much rather a company take care of a beloved and profitable franchise with large investments, contrary to just spending as little as possible, by merely profiting off of a brand’s name.

Halo 4 comes out November 6, exclusively on the Xbox 360.
