Xbox Entertainment Studio shut down, no more original programming except Halo planned

We reported earlier today that the original TV programming initiative for Xbox One was on the chopping block at Microsoft HQ. Turns out things are worse than we thought.

Microsoft is closing Xbox Entertainment Studios, a group of 200 employees who worked on original TV programming for Xbox systems.

It is being said that the Halo TV project is still in the works and is the only surviving project coming out of the studio.
