Omg.... How long do I have to wait!?! Did they do the TV show yet? Or is this it? Seems like it is taking forever if it is. Also, why announce it so soon?
This show is dead as Windows Mobile. They will continue delaying until they say its canceled.
Why yiu say that? Halo is a massive name even if the game this gen has not been as big. Look at star trek people said this was dead yet worked well on Netflix and now amazon are doing one. Not alot of space stuff on TV anymore so definitely room in the market for it.
Here's hoping it's not as tripe as their last TV effort.
