I'm a bit worried about them picking Otto Batthurst to direct/produce. While he did direct the first episode of Black Mirror, The National Anthem, which got great reviews (100% on RT with a score of 9/10, 7.8/10 user score on IMDB), he also directed Robin Hood (2018) which got a 15% on Rotten Tomatoes with a 3.7/10 critic score and a 5.6/10 user score. So he is hit and miss clearly. Let us hope and pray that he is "hit" when it comes to Halo instead of "miss".
Nobody else cares about the Halo tv show anymore? Well, we have been waiting for it for like 5 years, I guess I can't blame you xD
Microsoft definitely goofed by announcing it way too early, hard to maintain hype after 5 years.
