The show is set to launch in 2020, is being written by Showrunner Kyle Killen (Awake), directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of Planet of the Apes) and will tell a new story in the Halo universe while staying true to the source material.
“It is a new story but we are being incredibly respectful of the canon and working with the Microsoft 343 people to be sure we don’t violate any of that.” – Gary Levine(via IGN)
