David Nevins, president of Showtime, has said that the Microsoft dream of getting Halo made into a running TV series remains alive with the Steven Spielberg project soldiering on.
Microsoft made a big thing about producing their own Xbox exclusive TV-style content, but then it fizzled out and the corporate giant has remained stoic on the Halo TV series front. It was being made in conjunction with Showtime, so who better to ask than their president?
"It's still in development. Still in very active development," Nevins told IGN. Sadly we won't be hearing anything more about it any time soon he elaborated, but it does seem to be making some progress. Whether Spielberg remains attached in a producer role is unknown.
A digital feature has already been released but was a separate project. It was Halo: Nightfall which was an origin story for character Agent Jameson Locke, played by actor Mike Colter.
