Not content with ‘biggest game of the year,’ Bungie is hoping that their “most powerful title” yet, Halo: Reach, will prove to be “the biggest game ever“.
“Yeah, I can speculate,” Bungie’s community director Brian Jarrard started when asked if we’ll ever see a Halo movie. “Are there more stories to be told in the Halo universe? Absolutely. Do I think Reach will be the biggest game ever and probably attract an even larger audience to the fan community? Yes, I actually do.”
Jarrard expects the marketplace for a Halo flick to be “more ripe post Reach than it even was after Halo 3” and is willing to bet that it actually happening is no longer a matter of if, just when.
“I’m just speculating here since it’s Microsoft’s decision,” he continued, “but looking at how Halo Legends went and the release of that animated feature, definitely there’s demand for it, and I do applaud them for not rushing into it and waiting until they find the right people and the right creative ideas and the right time frame.”
“I think all of us at Bungie would love to see the right movie still get made with the right people; we’re just going to have to wait and see, just like all of our fans.”
