Microsoft secretly registers Halo Spartan Assault domains like SpartanAssault.net

There is a lot of buzz about Halo with E3 less than two weeks away. Microsoft is expected to reveal Halo 5 but is not expected to share anything more about Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Halo TV series, of which little is known about. It does appear however the company is up to something related to Halo ahead of E3 that is called Halo: Spartan Assault, according to several domain names Microsoft privately registered through the brand protection company MarkMonitor. Among the latest names Microsoft registered in late May, are SpartanAssault.net, HaloSpartanAssault.com and Halo-SpartanAssault.com. (Culture, Halo)

I thought they said, "No Talking About TV At E3?" Lol
GameCents  +   907d ago
Registering domains means they wanna talk about it at e3? Please explain this logic to me.

Well its like their teasing us to get ready for a halo type announcement at e3. If its not the game then its about the tv series that their going to make which is talking about tv lol. Catch my drift mate? Cheers.

So they are teasing it by registering the domain...in secret? You want them to wait until after E3 to register domains for their TV series? Wait until someone else registers it and then have to pay that person to have it?
By not announcing the registration of a domain they are telling us that they plan on talking about tv at e3? Is that the gist of your logic here?
The stupid lengths people go to to troll is dumbfounding.

It might be a game based on the TV series.

"Where are you getting this from"?

They could've meant that their conference isn't about TV but E3 isn't on just a single day. They can talk about their other plans at smaller venues and to those interested.

Well a new Halo game at E3 wouldn't exactly be surprising
tuglu_pati  +   906d ago
that's correct and i hope not to see one this year. It needs to rest for a bit and this is coming from one of the biggest Halo Fans

Maybe you, I want a Halo 2 anniversary because Halo 4 needs all the help it can get.

Same old same old MS.
They've been relying on this franchise too long, how many are there, 8? Why don't MS bring new franchises onto the table?!

only 6 fps halo games

Bungie had enough and moved on. So MS had to find a studio that couldn't come up with their own ideas to keep Halo alive. Not the first time MS used different developers on their same old stable of games.

@tuglu_pati ....and Uncharted and Resitace and killzone.

I feel they have a better story graphics and Game mechanics than anything found in the entire halo series.

just saying.

A studio that could not come up with their own ideas, the studio was made by MS with the focus on Halo. Why the hell do you think their name has 343 in it? Thats right you probably dont know.
go home your drunk

@ kingmushroom

I give you Uncharted which i enjoyed a lot. But Killzone and Resistance, meh.

just saying.
Perjoss  +   906d ago
Its all about supply and demand, people demand Halo, the sales figures (and review scores) always reflect that, so Microsft supply us with it. If you dont like Halo, well then that's just too bad, there are plenty of other great franchises out there for you.

I bet this is something for the 360. They said they would make a big announcement for the 360, right?
GamingAngelGabriel  +   906d ago
Halo 4 is only 7 months old. They aren't announcing Halo 5. Like HaloisKing said, maybe they'll announce Halo 2 HD.
DeadlyFire  +   906d ago
Halo 2 HD or Halo Spartan Assault tie in as another FPS spin off maybe.

Halo: Dawn Approach
stamps79  +   906d ago
I hope it's another Halo RTS.
GreenRanger  +   906d ago
It could be a game of the new series.
kingmushroom  +   906d ago
you know Halo's just that franchise that can keep selling for ever like mario. cus they just keep making halos left and right and people buy the stuff.
Bluepowerzz  +   906d ago
halo needs to die
SpideySpeakz  +   906d ago
Different day, same Halo.
While, as long as the Casuals keep buying it, then it'll never go away.
