Bungie studio manager Harold Ryan has been speaking to GamesIndustry.biz stating that the premium service wouldn't have worked without the now flagship title, Halo and Bungie's vision and leadership.
"I think Xbox Live wouldn't have made it. I don't think the Xbox would be where it is today without Bungie and without Halo," stated the studio manager.
He continuted "As a group, we provided both technical and creative guidance and thought leadership that really pushed the limits. We weren't just a game developer using the service. We were integrated in the design of the service and how it worked. Systems for groups and matchmaking and skill ranking were all things that were pushed the furthest and the hardest by us."
Do you agree with Ryan?
