Microsoft Confirms Upcoming Halo Movie is Still 'On Hold'

100°
259w ago - There has been a lot of talk about video games making their silver screen appearances, however, the latest videogame-based movie Halo has officially been put 'on hold' according to Microsoft.

To those who may be looking forward to the movie, 'on hold' would definitely be better than 'canned' right? The Halo movie has long been talked about, and yet pertinent details about the movie have yet to be revealed.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Kotaku (linked above), to quote:

"We're glad there's still a lot of enthusiasm in the entertainment industry surrounding the idea of a Halo movie.

That said, the Halo feature film remains on hold as we focus on projects like Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach."
 

Bungie: So Our Game's Called Halo - Halo Ten Year Anniversary

100°
262w ago - Ten years ago on July 21st, 1999: Macworld, New York. Apple's iCEO Steve Jobs yields the stage for a brief but soon to be memorable moment to Bungie co-founder Jason Jones.

Jones, looking a bit nervous, steps into the fore, shakes Jobs' hand and begins quite simply:

"So our game's called Halo..."

To quote: Internally, the title was known as Blam! - a moniker bestowed when Jones couldn't bring himself to use the original working title, Monkeynuts, in front of his own mother. Whatever the name, this is the first time the public has laid eyes on the project.

To write the sum of a decade is a monumental task. Bungie's history is encoded into the games we've made and defined by the men and women who've worked inside the studio's walls - people who have in many cases become a family. And of course we've also been shaped, inspired, and downright awestruck over the community that's followed alongside.

To say thank you for a decade is even more of a monumental task. We say it anyway. Thank you for more than ten years of community involvement, contribution, and support.

Thanks for the passion, for the letters, for the ravenous support (and defense) of us online, for pouring through our stories, for getting to the farthest...

Press Release: New competitive multiplayer maps for "Halo 3: ODST" revealed

LONDON - 7 July 2009 - Lock and load!

The three new "Halo 3: ODST" maps are Heretic, Citadel and Longshore:

• Heretic returns players to familiar ground as the "Halo 2" arena Midship makes its long-rumored debut in "Halo 3." The stark interior of the Pious Inquisitor might appear austere on first glance, but Heretic's symmetrical spaces require players to execute complex strategies in order to outplay their opponents.

• Citadel may be a long abandoned Forerunner stronghold, but its small, symmetrical confines are far from secure. Two opposing bases offer little safety for players looking for solace. Instead, Citadel forces small squads to stay in constant communication, keep their heads on a swivel, and be prepared to adjust combat tactics in close quarters.
