Halo, arguably the biggest first-person shooter series around, has already proven that it can also deliver a compelling experience in the real-time strategy genre (Halo Wars). But what's next for the Halo franchise? GamePro explores five game genres we want Halo games in. There's no denying that the Halo games defined the current first-person shooter experience on home consoles. From its controls to its exceptional online multiplayer formula, the first Halo game set the bar and reached mass-market appeal, and Bungie has since continued to improve upon the series again and again with Halo 2 and Halo 3. This year, Microsoft has branched the Halo brand out into a new genre--real-time strategy--with Halo Wars, exclusively for the Xbox 360. Early reviews of Halo Wars are positive enough to prove that the Halo brand has staying power and potential to become a household name like Super Mario Bros. So what's next for Halo and Master Chief? GamePro explores the possibilities of what other genres Microsoft should expand Halo into.
