After two years of aspiring to original content, Xbox Entertainment Studios is shutting down. Master Chief will have to settle for video game stardom.
Xbox Entertainment Studios was created in 2012 to help Microsoft create original entertainment content, but it appears Microsoft is shelving its hopes to produce an Xbox-branded version of Orange is the New Black. Some of the series currently in production will continue, like the upcoming live action, Stephen Spielberg-produced series based on Halo. The fate of some of the other upcoming projects, like the show from Sarah Silverman-led comedy collective Jash, remains up in the air.
