Halo: The Television Series announced for Xbox One; Steven Spielberg as producer

Microsoft confirmed it will not only be launching all new games for the Xbox One, but also producing new television TV series, made especially for owners of next-generation console. One of the series it plans to produce - and one that will please long time Xbox gamers - is Halo: The Television Series.

Even more impressive is that the Halo TV series will have producing input from mega film and TV show maker Steven Spielberg. In a taped message, Spielberg stated during the Xbox One press event, "'I'm incredibly excited about the incredible journey Halo will take us on."

No other details about the TV series were announced, other than that Microsoft's Halo game developer 343 Industries will be involved in some way. This seems to be a natural follow up to Microsoft's 2012 web series, Halo: Forward Unto Dawn, that was released at the same time as the Xbox 360 shooter Halo 4.

Microsoft has teams in a number of different locations around the world working on new television content, according to Microsoft's Entertainment and Digital Media president Nancy Tellem, including dramas, comedies, reality shows and shorts. Details about these shows have yet to be be released.
