Published

Showtime’s upcoming Halo TV show has kept many major details under wraps as the team works towards production kicking off in 2019, but one major detail has been confirmed.

Master Chief will not only be a part of the show, but will be one of the main characters in the show, but he won’t be the only lead.

Showtime president of programming Gary Levine recently participated in an interview with IGN regarding Master Chief’s identity, saying “a key question and an important part of our series.”

Showtime president and CEO David Nevins also commented, saying that it took the network a long time to find a good script, which explains the delay in the series.

“We made a conscious decision to hire a writer not known for sci-fi and not known for big battle movies, because that’s already baked into the Halo franchise and we will service that.

“But we also wanted to ensure that we were getting beneath the formidable armour of the Spartans and really getting inside the team drama so it felt like it belonged on Showtime,” said Levine.

Microsoft’s Phil Spencer Aims To Have Xbox Game Pass On All Devices

Microsoft has some lofty goals for Xbox Game Pass, and Phil Spencer is aiming for the moon when it comes to delivering Xbox Game Pass to more people.

Spencer said that Microsoft wants to bring Xbox Game Pass to “every device”, while speaking during the San Francisco’s Barclays conference last week.

Certainly, Microsoft’s Project xCloud will lay the foundation for doing just that, as it will go to public testing in 2019 and would be the logical bridge to Xbox Game Pass on mobile.

“We need to make sure that we’re world-class at free-to-play content, but we also look at subscription as a much lower barrier way for a customer to build a library of content,” Spencer elaborated (h/t VG247). “So we built Xbox Game Pass. It started on console, it will come to PC, and eventually it will come to every device.

“We use the flywheel that we have with customers on an Xbox to start the growth in Xbox Game Pass. But as somebody sitting back and taking a longer-term view of where our business is going, you should look at that as a business model that we think scales to billions of people not hundreds of millions of people like retail does.”
