Sparked by news that Xbox exec. John Schappert is moving on from Microsoft to mosey back towards Electronic Arts, I combed through my E3 intervew with Schappert, in search of information I might have left out. During our chat, I asked Schappert about the status of Peter Jackson's still-mysterious Halo project and the future of Too Human.
Sadly, there's not much to say about either. Take it away, Schappert.
"[Halo] Reach is not the Peter Jackson collaboration," he said, cautiously looking towards his public relations handler, when I asked if the project's still alive. "I don't think we have much to talk about with that one, do we?"
If Halo 3: ODST is this year's big Halo release and Halo: Reach is 2010's big Halo release, it's not much of a surprise that Peter Jackson's thing, whatever it is, remains under wraps. One relationship we haven't heard much about, though, is between Silicon Knights, Microsoft and the future of the proposed Too Human trilogy. Is it alive?
"We don't have anything to announce with respect to Silicon Knights or Too Human right now," said Schappert.
Well, thanks anyway, John.
