Today, Microsoft sent a statement to Eurogamer, with a clarification.

Specifically, Microsoft stated that,

“We plan to continue telling the Halo story through innovative channels, but there are no plans for a Halo motion picture at this time.”

“The Halo franchise encompasses many elements, including games, action figures, novels and more. As always, we have many projects in the works that offer us the opportunity to bring in new audiences to the franchise, as we did in the past with Halo Legends and Halo: Forward Unto Dawn.”

What are your thoughts? Were you looking forward to the new Halo movie?
