But what about Spielberg?
'Halo: Nightfall,' a live-action series produced by Ridely Scott and 343 Studios and set to air through the Xbox Live, debuted its first footage at Comic-Con San Diego. Starring Mike Colter as Agent Locke, the atmosphere and dialogue setup quite the dire tone. 'Halo: Nightfall' is meant to fill in some plot between 'Halo 4' and Halo 5: Guardians,' as well as introduce Locke, a character planned for appearance in the latter game.
"Taking place between the events of Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, Halo: Nightfall follows the origin story of legendary manhunter Jameson Locke (Mike Colter) and his team as they are caught in a horrific terrorist attack while investigating terrorist activity on the distant colony world of Sedra. Led by Locke, the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) agents are forced to coordinate with a Sedran commander with a remarkable history and deep-rooted mistrust of ONI. As the plot unravels, they’re drawn to an ancient, hellish artifact where they’re forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives. Agent Locke is a new character in the Halo universe poised to play a major role in Halo 5: Guardians releasing on Xbox One in 2015."
Multiple episodes are planned, the first to air on Nov. 11 of this year through Xbox Live. Clearly, Microsoft's recent shuttering of Xbox Entertainment Studios has not effected development. Those who own the upcoming 'Halo: The Master Chief Collection' are eligible for access upon release.. It's unclear if Microsoft plans on distributing the series any other way.
