The popular video game series has spawned a number of other adaptations, such as mini-series' like Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, starring Thom Green, and Halo: Nightfall, starring Luke Cage's Mike Colter.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt has been signed up to direct a number of episodes. The series is produced by Microsoft/343 Industries, along with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television (though Spielberg himself is not listed as an executive producer despite being heavily featured in the original announcement back in 2013). Kyle Killen will executive-produce, write, and serve as showrunner, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt will helm multiple episodes of the hour-long drama about a war between humans and aliens in the 26th century.

It's been known for some time that Showtime was actively developing "Halo" as a series, and the franchise has gotten the live-action treatment a few times in recent years in the form of digital series, but this promises to be a new take on an epic scale. Production will begin in the first quarter of 2019.

The show is, unsurprisingly, being called Halo for now, and Showtime's president and CEO David Nevins called it "our most ambitious series ever". "In the history of television, there simply has never been enough great science fiction".

As a flagship franchise for the Xbox family on consoles and PC platform, HALO has entertained gamers since the launch of Halo: Combat Evolved in November of 2001. "Together with our creative and production partners at Showtime and Amblin Television, the Halo television series will represent new and exciting way for fans to enter and engage with the Halo universe". You'll also recall that a feature film adaptation was in the works even earlier, with Peter Jackson producing and Neill Blomkamp making his feature directorial debut.
