Microsoft: We Can Top Halo

Asked how the chances were of MGS ever creating a franchise that could top or match Halo, the newly promoted Kim exclaimed, “Really good. And I’ll tell you why. We’ve got the talent, we’ve got people who are always on the lookout for new ideas and talent, and most importantly we have the commitment and the will to create those hits. Those are not easy tasks.

"There would’ve been lots of people in the past that would’ve not stuck with various projects that have turned out to be very successful for us.

“In no way would I say that Halo, or what we know of Halo today, is the peak of what’s possible. Far from it. It’s another benchmark, another milestone to exceed in the future.”

Topping the Halo franchise would be some kind feat. The most recent installment, Halo 3, generated $300 million in worldwide week-one sales when it launched in September last year.

The Halo series was launched in 2001 and created by developer Bungie, a former internal Microsoft development studio that has since reverted back to independence.

The Halo trilogy has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. New installments that are known to be in the works include the real-time strategy game Halo Wars and another project being created in collaboration with Lord of the Rings film director Peter Jackson.
