We've been waiting years for a proper Halo film, and we're finally a step closer. Get this: Microsoft is working on a live-action Halo project. Finally.
Numbers aren't available, but Variety is reporting that Microsoft is pumping in some major cash for Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, which will go live in the weeks before Halo 4 hits the Xbox 360 on Nov. 6.
"[We want] to make Halo accessible for people who haven't played the games," 343 Industries, the game's new development company, rep Matt McCloskey said. "We wanted to do something unique from a narrative standpoint that's big in scale."
The company is planning five weekly, 15-minute episodes of Forward Unto Dawn, focusing on Master Chief and how he inspired a young cadet.
If the shorts do well, McCloskey said it could open the door for move live-action development (See: The long rumored Halo movie).
"I don't think anybody needs any reminding of [the potential]," McCloskey said. "Everyone keeps reminding us of that."
Sound off: Are you psyched to get a live-action taste of the Halo universe?
