The goal of this partnership is to not only create new stories, but to redefine the way they are told. The first part of this long-term relationship is for Jackson, his partner Fran Walsh, and their team to bring to life two new interactive entertainment experiences exclusively for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live. The first project is to co-write, co-design, and co-produce a completely new and original chapter in the Halo universe in collaboration with Bungie Studios. The second project is an entirely original property from the team in New Zealand that will not only bring a whole new interactive story to life, but will also captivate new audiences that have yet to discover the power of interactive entertainment. Additionally, in collaboration with Microsoft Game Studios, Jackson and Walsh are creating Wingnut Interactive. The two companies will create a world-class interactive entertainment studio that fuses the strength of Microsoft's technology and interactive entertainment experience with the creative and imaginative excellence of the Wingnut team. "Microsoft has built an amazing living canvas with Xbox 360 and Xbox Live, which allows the storytellers of our time to express themselves in a new medium. They have fundamentally changed how people think about games," Jackson said. "My vision, together with Microsoft Game Studios, is to push the boundaries of game development and the future of interactive entertainment. From a movie-maker's point of view, it is clear to me that the Xbox 360 platform is the stage where storytellers can work their craft in the same way they do today with movies and books, but taking it further with interactivity."
