Halo franchise is prepared to take the next step and become the next great TV series, as Microsoft announced last year. Until Steven Spielberg will finish his work as an executive producer of the first live-action television series of Halo, another great director – Ridley Scott – will have a word to say about the Halo Universe.
Halo: Nightfall is the name of the project, a powerful short live-action series, with “high-quality visuals and storytelling and rich interactivity”, that will prepare the fans for the next Halo video game – Halo 5: Guardians.
The lead role in the show belongs to Mike Colter, an actor known for his role in CBS’s acclaimed TV drama The Good Wife. In Halo: Nightfall he will star as Agent Jameson Locke, who will play a key role in Halo 5: Guardians. Nightfall‘s story is set between the events of Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, and it is an origin story that will offer insight into the kind of character Locke will become in the next game.
Halo: Nightfall will be released later this year on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and other Microsoft devices, and it will be included on Halo: Master Chief Collection! Here are the first photos with Agent Locke:
