Speaking to Eurogamer at E3, Xbox boss Don Mattrick said that Bungie head Harold Ryan laughed off the decision to not announce the developer’s new Halo game in the Xbox 360 press conference.

“Sure they’re disappointed. Any software creator would be disappointed,” said Mattrick.

“Harold just laughed and he said, ‘Boy, just a sign of growth inside the business, we agree’.”

He reiterated that Microsoft will host an event to show the game for the first time later this year.

“That’s what we’re going to do and I think we’re smart,” he said. “I had so many people come to me and say ‘look at that, that’s a measure of growth and maturity of Microsoft – the fact that you have the best show, the best collection of products and you didn’t even have to show Halo’.”
