Cable channel Showtime may be the first avenue for Microsoft’s upcoming Halo TV series, according to a report by Variety.

Details are apparently still being worked out, but reportedly episodes will be shown on Showtime’s channel first before being released on the Xbox.

The delay is reportedly due to interactive elements that will accompany the Xbox version. While these elements aim to be innovative, they’re also taking longer to produce.

The Halo TV series was first announced last year and will be helmed by veteran Steven Spielberg. Very little is currently known about the content of the show.
