With core gamers the world over crying out for Halo on Kinect, Microsoft's Halo studio 343 Industries has commented on the possibility of the two system-sellers coming together.
343's creative director Frank O'Connor spoke to ComputerandVideoGames about the success of real-time strategy Halo Wars and the possibility of a sequel.
The funny thing about Halo Wars is it actually beat our sales forecasts, so it was a bigger success than we expected. It was a big critical success and it’s still the number one selling RTS on consoles this generation. In that regard it was a huge success but is the will to do a sequel there? Who knows. We could do something that works on Kinect, for example. There’s no will against it but we’re not working on it right now.
Considering Kinect is capable of multi touch-like control systems we can certainly foresee a real-time strategy game working, but would you be disappointed if Halo came to Kinect as an RTS instead of a shooter?
