Ridley Scott's 'Halo' undertaking is a prequel to the subsequent main 'Halo' recreation
In a means, director Ridley Scott’s Halo-themed challenge, dubbed Dusk, brings Microsoft’s tentpole shooter franchise full circle. Grasp Chief’s galaxy-spanning exploits owe an enormous debt to the filmmaker’s iconic story of deep-area horror, Alien, and now Scott helps set up the place the franchise goes on the Xbox One. As 343 Industries head Bonnie Ross stated throughout my assembly at E3 this week, working with him “type of upped the bar” on the collection, particularly in comparison with 343’s final try at stay-motion, the Halo four lead-in Ahead Unto Daybreak. “Hopefully we get higher every time,” she stated. Dusk tells the origin story for Agent Locke, a personality Ross stated performs a “pivotal position” in Halo 5: Guardians. So far as story, that is as a lot as we all know thus far. Ross is not positive what number of episodes Dusk will span, however stated that there might be 5 of them main into Halo 5‘s beta timeframe.

The episodic collection was ultimately launched as a single movie to residence video, however did not fairly satiate followers clamoring to see Grasp Chief on the large display and all that that might entail. Ross does not see the franchise heading that means, although.
