Halo series

Group Description

Halo is a science fiction video game series created by Bungie Studios for Windows and Xbox (360). The franchise became a flagship property for the Xbox and Xbox 360 consoles of Microsoft which also owns it. The last game in the series developed by Bungie was Halo 3, after which they became independent from Microsoft again. Starting with Halo 4 343 Industries, established in 2007 by Microsoft Game Studios, continued the Halo series with the second trilogy.

All official games in the series are 3D first-person shooters, but a fan team created the 2D side-scrolling shooter Halo Zero. Bungie created a Nintendo DS demo as an unsolicited pitch, but nothing came of it eventually. The series' most prominent character is Master Chief.

In September 2008 it was revealed Ensemble Studios had been working on a Halo MMO since 2006, though not continually, but the project was eventually cancelled by Microsoft. Instead, the development on the strategy title Halo Wars was continued.

The games were used to create the popular machinima Red vs. Blue, which ran from 1st April 2003 until 28 June 2007 with 100 episodes. It was conceived by Rooster Teeth Productions and was distributed primarily through the Internet and DVD.
