Halo developer 343 Industries are hoping to bring Halo to “as many formats as possible”

The developers of the Halo series, 343 Industries, are hoping to bring the FPS franchise to as many formats as possible, both digital and physical. This is according to the Halo: Spartan Assault lead designer Mike Ellis.
He recently spoke to VentureBeat and discussed the possibility of Halo perhaps branching out from its typical formats, there was no mention of whether or not it would head on over to platforms that are in direct competition with the Xbox and Windows platforms though. The franchise is of course owned and published by Microsoft so I highly doubt this will be happening any time soon.
343′s looking to have Halo experiences in as many formats as possible. You can look through our portfolio now. We have games. We have books on the New York Times bestseller list. We have toys and things like Mega Blocks and McFarlane figures.
Halo is bigger than any one game. We see it as an entire universe of experiences.
The next game in the series, Spartan Assault will be releasing on the Xbox One later this month and will then eventually find its way over to the Xbox 360, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.
I thought we’d seen the end of the Halo series a while back, how many more games can they make for it, will the “many formats” be all for Spartan Assault or will there be a new game in the works?
