A Halo TV series with Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief, Natasha Mcelhone as Dr. Halsey and Jen Taylor as Cortana’s voice, is in progress for some time and is scheduled to start Paramount + in the first quarter of 2022.
In an interview with IGN, 343 Head of Transmedia Kiki Wolfkill has evidenced the goals of the TV show and additionally given a small insight into the work. The biggest challenge in the creation of TV adaptation is to help you find the best not interactive way of representing the history of the Master Chiefs:
Probably the biggest challenge in adapting the game is that the game is designed to put you in the armor of the Chief. In relation to the series, we ask people to sit back and we will present one side of the Chief, which you can not play in the game.
In addition, the series has the opportunity to expand the partially limited narrative possibilities of video games and to illuminate characters and twists more precisely:
In an ego shooter, there is only a limited character development, because you want to get the opportunity to influence the character in a certain way from the players. Television gives us the opportunity to really focus on character and history in a way that is harder in an ego game.
The hope is that you can play the game and have this feeling for who is this character, and having fun, and then you can stop and yield it to enjoy this other experience and take another journey. See this character in a different way without the feeling that he destroys the character you’ve already closed during the game.
Wolfkill also talked about her responsibility to deliver a convincing product for halo fans. During production, all your energy is focused on creating something great. Time to panic and think about a possible failure, you do not remain:
For me it is important that I concentrate on where we do, and what we want to deliver and why. Why is really important. For the television series we want to make something new for Halo and we want people to experience it differently, and that goes with a great responsibility. And then there is still the personal drive to create something great. You bring all these things together and there is no room for panic. At the end of the day it is energy management. The energy must be directed to come to the finish with something great.
