This is probably the game that most gamers were expecting to see when Spartan first announced that they had the Halo licence. The models looked excellent when I saw them at Salute earlier this year. Really looking forward to this, and we hope to get Neil & Derek from Spartan back on the show to chat about this as soon as we can.
