Halo showtime series was announced a while ago with Steven Spielberg as a producer, however, this was even before the launch of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and since then the Halo TV series has been in a limbo. However, Showtime has noted that the Halo TV series is still in active development.
Speaking with TV Guide, Showtime boss David Nevins noted that Halo Showtime series is not dead and is actively moving forward and assured that Halo fans will be satisfied with the TV series along with the casual network audience.
[It] is absolutely still in development, still moving forward and I’m encouraged by what we’ve seen so far. It’s still live action, and it will definitely satisfy the fans of Halo and I think also satisfy the drama audiences of Showtime.
However, he didn’t reveal when we will see the Halo TV series or a trailer for the Halo Showtime series. But given that it is moving forward we can expect a trailer later this year.
Halo franchise is among the most popular exclusive franchises for Xbox but, according to FPS control designer at Bungie, Jaime Griesemer, Microsoft hated the name Halo for its mega FPS franchise.
Halo 5 launched in 2015 with a mixed reception, however, developer 343 Industries has noted that Halo 5 was a learning experience for the upcoming Halo 6 and Halo 5 mistakes will not be repeated.
We very much realized that people wanted Master Chief’s story of Halo 5. We definitely marketed in a way that we hoped was going to bring surprise, but for some fans and certainly fans of Master Chief, it was a huge disappointment because they wanted more Chief.
