Halo 4: Microsoft’s Most Expensive Game
For those of us curious to see how 343 Industries will manage the former Bungie lead behemoth Halo series, the intrigue has just got even more intense. Speaking to Polygon, Microsoft Studios lead, Phil Spencer has revealed that Halo 4 is Microsoft’s most expensive game, of all time. Wow, just wow.
According to Spencer, the project has cost Microsoft around 3 billion dollars. This figure may seem surprisingly high but the Halo series is a very important product for Microsoft. In fact, Phil Spencer described Halo as the most important entertainment product for the company. According to Spencer no other project has ever come close to costing as much as this installment of the Halo series.
So what exactly have 343 Industries been jamming into the game to make it cost so much more? We are desperate to find out. Luckily we only have to wait until November 6th to find out, when the game is released. We’ve all had our copies on pre-order for months anyway. The footage that we’ve seen so far is looking really good, but the question still remains of whether or not 343 can successfully take over the project from Bungie, keeping in all the elements that have made Halo so popular, but at the same time adding their own mark.
