Interview with Jason Jones on Halo
8:39 AM | Max Dyckhoff | Comment on this story

GameSpot UK posted an exclusive interview with Bungie's elusive co-founder Jason Jones, who is currently heading the Halo team developing this firs-person shooter.

The whole interview is worth a read, but here is one particularly interesting question that was put to him:

GSUK: So how's the PC version shaping up?

JJ: You know we're concentrating on the Xbox version at the moment, there's still a lot of work to do, a lot of cool s**t which we've got to pull out, so we're not even really thinking about the PC and Mac stuff yet. We're committed to doing it after we're done, but the core Halo team, actually a bunch of the guys from Oni, are doing everything they can to make Xbox Halo work out.

He also goes on to say that "We're committed to Halo being an Xbox launch title", however the Mac and PC versions will surely follow by at least a couple of months. When asked if Bungie were going to abandon the Mac and PC platforms in favour of the XBox, he replied that "We'll always do Mac and PC stuff."

Halo was shown to members of the press at the recent Microsoft Gamestock conference, where a number of new screenshots and movies were made available. The XBox version is expected to be out late this year, as a launch title along for the XBox console itself.
