During the announcement of Microsoft’s Xbox One last Tuesday, it was also unveiled that Halo will have a live-action adaptation. Steven Spielberg will be the executive producer of the game’s TV series.

In a video chat during Microsoft’s event, Spielberg noted that he’s been a long-time gamer. He noted:

For me, the “Halo” universe is an amazing opportunity to be at the intersection where technology and storytelling meet.

However, it is still unclear whether Halo’s TV adaptation will be offered on regular networks or through the new Xbox One.

This is not the first time that Halo got involved in a live-action adaptation. In fact, it inspired a 90-minute Web series that was released last fall—the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. It was credited by Microsoft for helping them drive sales for the Halo 4 game, which was launched last year. The original game and its three sequels have sold 50 million copies worldwide in total.
