The Halo 2 documentary that Microsoft announced last week has a launch date: Oct. 31 on Xbox and Twitch, followed by two rebroadcasts on Twitch the following Saturday and Sunday.
To recap, that's Friday, Oct. 31. "Remaking the Legend — Halo 2: Anniversary" will be available for download on Xbox Video that day. It will also air at 2 pm ET on Twitch on Oct. 31, then at 9 p.m. ET on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2. The feature will also be available on the Halo Channel on Nov. 11.
The filmmakers shot more than 400 hours of footage and 80 interviews, Microsoft said on Friday. "It's pretty awesome to hear the original team from Bungie talk about the beginning of this franchise and it's something we think both new and old fans will appreciate," said Tina Summerford, director of programming for 343 Industries, which has steered the Halo franchise since taking it over from its creator, Bungie, in 2011.
