Alex Seropian had this to say about Halo 4

Alex Seropian recently had this to say about Halo 4. He knows a thing or two about Halo since he was there at Bungie Studios where it all began.

Game Sport: A quick one about Halo and Bungie. You've been away from Bungie and Halo for a while now, but I'd assume the franchise remains close to your heart. How do you feel about the franchise being in the hands of Microsoft and 343 Industries?

AS: It's so crazy in an interesting way. I've been an observer for a while now. So much has gone on with the franchise. I will say the encouraging thing is that I know a lot of the folks at Microsoft working on it, and they are great people. I'm very hopeful that the team there is very fantastic. They are certainly treating it with a lot of care and respect. And applying the resources you'd like to see applied to a franchise like that. I'm hopeful that it will continue to bring the high production value and cool experiences it's known for.

GS: Did you play Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary?

AS: Yeah. It brought back a lot of memories. It was all great.

GS: Is any part of you nervous about Halo 4?

AS: Yeah, a little bit. But I don't think I can be anything other than hopeful that it will be great. We'll see. Halo is one of the crown jewels in the Microsoft gaming IP, if not the crown jewel, so you would expect nothing less than for them to take the time needed and apply the resources needed to make it great. I would be pretty surprised if they whiffed it. Maybe it will bring a fresh perspective, and that's so hard because there's so many fans that are used to a particular thing that bringing something new is often…it's hard to bring something new to a franchise that's so established. I'm looking forward to it.
