What Happened To The Halo MMO?
Dusty Monk, a former employee of Ensemble Studios, has recently talked about the Halo MMO with the people from Incgamers. Unfortunately, this project is already dead, but Monk offered some interesting insight of what the Halo MMO could have been.
First of all, this project was thought to be a direct competitor of World of Warcraft. Some people who have worked on it mentioned that the game could have fought against WoW and perhaps attract even more players. Why didn’t they manage to complete the Halo MMO? It seems that Microsoft turned in a different direction after noticing bigger potential in the Nintendo Wii. They decided to use their funds on that part of the market and the Halo project was shut down for good.
It is not known if they will ever bring it back, but even if it happens it won’t be anytime soon.
