Remember Peter Jackson saying Halo Chronicles had been cancelled? When he said the project “fell apart,” “is no longer happening,” has “collapsed,” and that his “involvement with the project” has “ended”?
Microsoft has released a statement on the matter, using less final wording.
“Microsoft Game Studios is deeply committed to supporting and strategically growing the Halo franchise, and our relationship with Peter and his team is something that we greatly value. Given the bandwidth of both of our companies we’ve decided to put this joint effort on hold and prioritize resources against other projects like Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach and Halo Legends.”
So there you go, sci-fi hobbit fans. Cling to those ethereal syllables. Dare to dream.

Peter Jackson has said that his Halo Chronicles project is no longer gonna happen.
You could even say it’s as dead as Miranda Keyes, from the way Jackson talked – at least on his end.
“That Halo project is no longer happening, it sort of collapsed when the movie didn’t end up happening,” he said. “Microsoft has a whole strategy with the Halo property, and when the rights expired with the two studios, that sort of ended my involvement with the project.
“That fell apart because of internal politics at Fox and Universal. It had nothing to do with the budget or anything else. In fact, we hadn’t even been greenlit at all at that point.”
Confirmation came by way of Joystiq, which ran into Jackson at the premiere of District 9.

Xbox head of Business, Don Mattrick, has confirmed to MTV that Bungie’s new title is indeed a new Halo game.
No direct quote is given, strangely, but Mattrick did apparently say that this is not the Peter Jackson venture: so it’s something completely new.
This is rather at odds with the decision that Microsoft took to postpone the announcement last night.
Don’t you just love E3?

Microsoft is now advertising for a creative director, producer and “game engineers” to work on the Peter Jackson Halo game Microsoft announced at X06.
“A Peter Jackson-helmed Halo project was announced at X06 in Barcelona,” a Microsoft spokesperson told MTV.
“Since then, Microsoft Game Studios has been hard at work collaborating with Peter Jackson and Bungie on the development of that project. At this time, it’s necessary to grow the internal team to keep pace with development. Bungie will continue to remain involved in multiple aspects of the Halo Universe with MGS.”
