Paramount+ released the trailer to their highly anticipated ‘Halo’ Series yesterday.
‘Halo’ will be based on the video game series of the same name by Xbox Game Studios. A first-person shooter, the game is riddled with non-stop action and has a captivating story making it one of the most recognizable video game franchises of all time.
The live-action series has been in development since 2013. It was initially set to be produced by Xbox Entertainment Studios as an exclusive for Xbox One but has since ceased to exist. In 2018 it was ordered by Showtime, and began filming in October 2019 but was delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. It was announced last February that it was going to be moving from Showtime to Paramount Plus. You can read more about that here.
