It’s a big day for Halo – today, SHOWTIME president and CEO David Nevins announced the network has ordered a 10-episode season based on the legendary video game franchise!

In its adaptation for SHOWTIME, Halo (working title) will take place in the universe that first came to be in 2001, dramatizing an epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant. Kyle Killen (Awake) will serve as executive producer, writer and showrunner. Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) will direct multiple episodes and also executive produce the hour-long series which enters production in early 2019.

“Halo is our most ambitious series ever, and we expect audiences who have been anticipating it for years to be thoroughly rewarded,” said Nevins. “In the history of television, there simply has never been enough great science fiction. Kyle Killen’s scripts are thrilling, expansive and provocative, Rupert Wyatt is a wonderful, world-building director, and their vision of Halo will enthrall fans of the game while also drawing the uninitiated into a world of complex characters that populate this unique universe.”

“This is a truly exciting moment for the Halo franchise,” stated Kiki Wolfkill, head of Halo Transmedia at 343 Industries. “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. We can’t wait to share more on what’s ahead.”

Halo will be executive produced by Killen, Wyatt and Scott Pennington, along with Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank for Amblin Television. The series will be distributed globally by CBS Studios International.

EA Misses Getting Giant Bags of Money With Star Wars: Battlefront II – Plans To Reintroduce Microtransactions Soon

Oh EA, why must you hurt us so…

While Star Wars: Battlefront II, the embattled multiplayer first person shooter from DICE, sold a whopping nine million copies, it fell a million short of EA’s conservative ten million estimate, and considerably below the three-month opening sales of the previous title. The game has also fallen short in terms of revenue, prompting EA to confirm that microtransactions will be returning to the game soon.

After hastily removing the ability to buy crystals, virtual currency for the lootbox-driven progression mechanic of the game, hours ahead of the game’s launch, EA promised that they would bring them back once they figured out how to better make them fit into the multiplayer game. Today, EA explained that the microtransactions will be returning within the next few months.

Additionally, EA CEO Andrew Wilson was quick to clarify that the supposedly acrimonious row between the publisher and Disney was fictional and their relationship was no weaker for the controversy. “You shouldn’t believe everything you read in the press,” explained Wilson. “We have a tremendous relationship with Disney and we have built some amazing games together, and we have been very proactive with that relation in the service of our players.

“We’re at a point where, when we make the decision that we have the right model for players and our community, I have no doubt that we will get the support of Disney on that,” he said when discussing reintroducing the microtransaction model back into Battlefront II.

EA has revised their forecast to expect Battlefront II’s sales to hit its original 10-11 million goal by the end of the fiscal year, or the start of April. This number still puts it behind the first game in the same time frame, which sold fourteen million by that point.

World of WarCraft Expansion Battle for Azeroth Is Coming This Summer

I may not go back ever, but this really does bring back memories.

Blizzard has said Battle for Azeroth, the seventh World of Warcraft expansion, will launch this summer – a date further clarified to mean on or before 21st September 2018.

Pre-purchasing the expansion – buying it outright ahead of time – comes with benefits. One of those is an immediately available free boost to the game’s current level cap of 110; another is a head start on quests to unlock Allied Races in the full Battle for Azeroth expansion. It’s not clear how much of the quests you can complete.

A more expensive Digital Deluxe Edition (£53) offers a Seabraid Stallion Alliance mount or Gilded Ravasaur Horde mount in World of Warcraft, and a cute baby Tortollan pet. There are also some voice lines, sprays and icons for Overwatch; a Hearthstone card back; a Heroes of the Storm Flamesaber mount; and Horde and Alliance StarCraft 2 sprays.
