Over on the 343 Industries blog, the Halo developer posted a message to the fans with details of what to expect for this new year. Unfortunately, any notion of a Halo 6 release date for 2018 was shot down pretty much immediately.
The blog post’s intro reads:
Welcome back! To be frank (or Grim, really), I’m not sure if that’s a welcome back to us, or you guys, but let’s go with it either way. 2018 has arrived and with it, the promise of new fun times to be had and adventures to be embarked upon. No, not those adventures, but plenty of exciting ones regardless – some which might surprise you more than others.
“No, not those adventures” has to refer to Halo 6, right? The Halo community seems to think so, and I’m going to agree.
As for Halo in other media, it looks like the Steven Spielberg-made Halo TV show is still happening!
Despite five years having passed since we heard anything about the project, Showtime president and CEO David Nevins informed TVGuide.com that Halo “is absolutely still in development, still moving forward and I’m encouraged by what we’ve seen so far.” When poked for more, Levine said “it’s still live action, and it will definitely satisfy the fans of Halo and I think also satisfy the drama audiences of Showtime.”
Both good and bad news for Halo fans, I guess!
