SHOWTIME, Amblin Television and 343 Industries Bring Halo to Television

Ya'll can hear can't you? lol

Hopefully it isn't terrible.

The Halo universe has tons of incredible lore, but video game adaptations have a tendency to be really bad...

Jinger109d ago


I agree, I have 0 expectations for this show. I'll give it 3 episodes to hook me and if not then I'll move on. That's pretty much my rule with most shows these days.

Skull521108d ago

Showtime does some pretty great stuff, I couldn’t think of a better place for it, hope it’s great

RainOfTerror111d ago

about time .. it's only been talked about for a decade or so :)

PhantomS42111d ago

I'll believe it when it airs. There have been so many promises and none made tracks and that was during Halo's prime. Halo is in a very rough low point right now.

TheColbertinator109d ago

Only Bungie can restore Halo its true glory

UltraGaming109d ago

@TheColbertinator I hope Bungie stay far far away from Halo, they are not the studio that they once were, They would turn it into another destiny

BiggerBoss109d ago


That would still be better than what 343 has turned it into...

ImGumbyDammit109d ago


That Bungie doesn't exist anymore. There are more original Bungie employees working for 343 than at Bungie today. And lest we not forget the current Bungie created that awful mess Destiny. So, no we don't want their hands on Halo anymore.

BiggerBoss109d ago (Edited 109d ago )


Do you have a source for any of that nonsense?

Please tell me how many "original bungie members" are at 343 right now.

TheColbertinator109d ago


Destiny 1 was ok,2 was a disaster but I blame Activision for that mostly.

Bungie still has a good team with constant community support. Also 343 butchered Halo.

No couch coop,the story has been trash since 4 and they make terrible MP maps.

Yeah buddy!!! I was stoked when I heard Showtime picked this up.

Off topic, but if anyone's a Riddick fan, Merc City is a series being made too.

Also, a John Wick spin-off:

Sorry, but I'm a big fan of both of these movies!

Gman32111d ago

i dont see that john wick spinoff making it

TheCommentator109d ago

I don't know, the idea of a prequel that follows the assassin's guild sounds promising if it's done right.

Ninja_Ryu111d ago (Edited 111d ago )

That was announce 3 years ago (Merc City)

TheCommentator109d ago

From what I've read, I'm assuming that David Twohy is writing the scripts for Riddick 4 and Merc City at the same time and plans to release the series after the fourth film (but before Riddick 5). The whole thing has gone strangely silent though...

I'd like to see another Riddick game, personally, Butcher Bay and Dark Athena were both pretty good.

Very interesting indeed.
