Halo TV series coming to Xbox One, Steven Speilberg involved

Halo may never get the live action film treatment, but it seems Microsoft is giving players the next best thing with the Xbox One. Microsoft announced today that, after Halo's success in games, books, and the Forward Unto Dawn miniseries, developer 343 is now working on a premium, live action TV series based in the Halo universe that will appear on Xbox One. And Steven Spielberg is somehow involved.

The series was compared to such high profile TV shows as Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones, set in the world of Halo. Spielberg's involvement isn't totally clear just yet, but from the sound of it, this could be the foundation for Xbox One's new entertainment service. Is Microsoft starting its own version of HBO or Netflix?

    This was the only interesting part of the Event... and it still sucked... not because I think the idea suck, I'm really happy this is happening but it has little to do with what I expected for the event, which was GAMES. Still hyped for a Halo Series though, it's just not a reason to buy this Xbox.

    It's funny. Speilberg has always been rumored for being the Director of a Halo movie. That was years ago, and now he is the director of the TV series. It will be entertaining.

    When you combine all the episodes of "Forward onto Dawn" (as they have and it's on Netflix) it makes an 1hr 15min movie. We have a Halo movie. And "Halo: Legends" was also amazing.
