Halo Co-Creator Reveals First Image From New Game

Marcus Lehto's new studio reveals a first look at their new game.


V1 Interactive, the studio founded by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto, has revealed a first look at the team's new game. As posted on the developer's website, the image shows a city/settlement that has presumably seen better days.

The image's caption says that the picture shows just a "glimpse into a small corner of the larger world we're building." More information about V1's untitled game will be revealed "soon," the developer said. "We've still got some miles to tread before we can pull the curtain all the way back, so stay tuned!"

The image apparently contains some clues and mysteries. Someone zoomed in on a creature walking on the fallen structure on the right-hand side of the image, and Lehto--presumably joking--said this is the protagonist from the game.

Whatever this game is, it will be published by Private Division, which is the newly established independent games label run by Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto parent company Take-Two. Private Division is also publishing The Outer Worlds, which is the intriguing-looking sci-fi RPG from the Microsoft-owned Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian, along with the super-ambitious PC and console game Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey from Assassin's Creed creator Patrice Desilets.

Another co-creator of the Halo universe, Alex Seropian, is working on a new game as well. Seropian's studio, Industrial Toys, was acquired by Electronic Arts, and CFO Blake Jorgensen said the project is "innovative." But it's probably not launching soon.

What do you make of the first image from V1's new game? It's giving me some Destiny vibes. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
