Halo 4 launched worldwide with large sales figures predicted after much critical acclaim.

Executive producer for Halo 4, Kiki Wolfkill, said 343 Industries has a big vision for Halo going forward so future games might not be limited to first-person shooters.

"We've always had a big vision for Halo and the universe and we look at ourselves as not just a games studio but an IP studio," she told CVG.

"The first-person shooter is the best place to tell one kind of story but as you can see from Forward Unto Dawn and stuff like that, there are other parts of the story that are interesting to tell in different ways.

"I think we'd look at what the most interesting genre, medium, delivery and mechanism is to tell a certain story, and if it moves the IP forward in an interesting way we'll do it."

Forward Unto Dawn is a live-action video series set in the Halo world, with Wolfkill adding that 343 Industries wants to see Halo encompass all the good things about Star Wars.

"Forward Unto Dawn allowed us to explore characters a little bit differently and tell a different kind of story - and that is interesting to us. We want Halo as a universe to grow and evolve and be a Star Wars... all the good parts about Star Wars!"
