Phil Spencer, Vice President of Microsoft Game Studios, has revealed that there will be Halo news announced at this year's E3.
McFarlane Toys might have been best known for its sports and Spawn figures before Halo 3 came out, but with the acquisition of Microsoft's flagship franchise, the company exploded into the gaming scene. Now, McFarlane reps Halo to an insane degree and has expanded to a successful partnership with Ubisoft and the Assassin's Creed franchise.
When it comes to action figures, few companies are as consistent and reliable when it comes to both quality of the figure and the quality of the license. NECA has been steadily maintaining one of the most impressive streaks in both categories for years, and this year's offerings at Toy Fair were no exception.
We've always been big fans of Kotobukiya, and couldn't pass up an opportunity to see what the Japanese collectible-maker had in the works at Toy Fair. Though the company has always had a fairly diverse line-up, 2014 is shaping up to cover more franchises and licenses than we've seen in previous years.
It looks as though Master Chief is still in the grieving process because he told us not to expect his return until 2015, but at least we have another remake.
Take the fight to the Flood and the Covenant, in a top-down perspective, as Halo: Spartan Assault is finally released for the Xbox 360.
Sources say that an anniversary edition of Halo 2 is incoming and that Microsoft Studios has a lot of Halo-related content planned.
Halo: Spartan Assault is a top-down, dual-stick shooter (think Robotron/Super Smash TV). Taking place between the events of Halo 3 and 4, there are still plenty of Flood and Covenant leftovers that Master Chief must have missed that you need to clear out. Originally released on Windows 8, this is the first console version of Spartan Assault ever released. As we are patiently waiting for Halo 5 on the Xbox One, we're just itching for an excuse to have a DMR in our hands. Luckily, Spartan Assault's jump to the Xbox One proves that even though you're not playing as Master Chief, you can still be a Spartan.
This August, Halo: Initiation will arrive from Dark Horse Comics, which will tell the story of the very first Spartan-IV commander.
