Some disagree with him, arguing that Master Chief’s character, along with many plot points, need fleshing out or outright resolution. To those hung up on the idea of 343 making changes just, well, because, they argue that sequels always diverge in some ways from the original titles. In other words, stop obsessing. One thing’s not changing: Halo will remain available for the Xbox and PC exclusively. So what are some of 343’s plans? To start, it will debut the Web series Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn on Oct. 5. Details are sparse but it’s said to be the most expensive live-action Halo project so far (costing between $5 and $10 million, according to GameZone). Then there’s the Xbox 360 Bundle: For $400, you get Halo 4, a custom-designed console and controllers, a wired headset, a 320 GB hard drive, built in Wi-Fi and Xbox Live tokens. Why a live-action series? Co-producer Lydia Antonini told GameZone it will “do all the things that a game, by virtue of being a game, can’t.... When you have real people, you can have real stakes and make connections."
