Since Microsoft first unveiled their TV production ambitions and announced that Steven Spielberg-produced Halo TV show is in development, we’ve been hearing less and less about the elusive project.

It didn’t take long for the company to can the nascent TV division, and re-shift focus on to games, but this show in particular is the one that keeps getting brought up. To our surprise, it’s apparently still in production, according to the Xbox boss.

You may remember, almost a year ago, a report confirmed that Showtime was still developing it, but had nothing to share at the time.

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has now revived this discussion after confirming on Twitter that yes, the Steven Spielberg Halo series is still “alive.”

That’s really about it. The executive didn’t elaborate on his statement, but at least we know it’s not been completely forgotten. Hopefully next time we hear about it, it’ll be good news with actual details.
