Given the recent hit release of Halo: Reach, it seems astounding that Universal and Fox passed up an opportunity to make a movie based on the franchise. Still, considering the franchise has gotten to greater heights without a big movie production, it could be that Halo doesn’t need to reach the big screen.
I don’t know if we need a Halo movie”, said corporate vice president of Microsoft Game Studios Phil Spencer. “If the right scenario came up, I could see us entertaining it. I don’t think it’s an integral part of where we are going.”
“I think it has moved beyond movies,” Spencer added. “That doesn’t mean we would shut the door on the possibility. I don’t think it’s a requirement.”
