Steven Spielberg's Halo TV Show Is Still Alive
But we still don't know much about it.
Microsoft has not talked about it in a very long time, but Steven Spielberg's Halo TV show for Showtime is still on the way, it seems. Asked on Twitter what was up with the project or if it was dead, Spencer stated, "Alive."
That's not much, but confirmation that it's not cancelled is something. This follows news from August 2015, when Showtime boss David Nevins confirmed the TV show was in "very active development."
The Halo TV show was at one time expected to debut in fall 2015 alongside Halo 5: Guardians, but of course that didn't happen. It's unclear exactly what's holding the project up, but it's not uncommon for Hollywood productions to take a long time to come to fruition.
After production house Xbox Entertainment Studios shut down in 2014, the fate of the project was called into question. But Microsoft quickly stepped in to say the show would not be affected.
Disclosure: GameSpot and Showtime are both owned by CBS.
