If you’ll be travelling to San Diego for Comic Con this year (or are San Diego native planning to hit up the event) then you’ll be one of the first to check out the Xbox Exclusive Halo Live Action TV Show. Some amount of question remains as to whether Steven Spielberg is still involved in the project or not after ambiguity was put into the air when himself and George Lucas were seen at the industry trade event where the series was originally announced fraternizing about how they feel video games are not a powerful medium. At that same table sat a very nervous looking Don Mattrick who shortly after left Microsoft and is the main reason why MS were able to land Spielberg for the project in the first place.
That being said, production on the series is still thrusting forward with or without Spielberg and fans shouldn’t shed a tear if he does depart, since MS seems to have a pretty firm grip on what their fans what these days (as evident by their powerful E3 2014 presentation which was able to make doubters into believers. Be sure to stop by if you’re in San Diego and let us know what you thought of the first look at Microsoft’s foray with making one of their most acclaimed franchises into a television-style Xbox Original series for digital distribution. Below you will find the time, place, and itinerary of this sneak peak preview event.
