Bungie founder Would be “Surprised” If Microsoft Messed up on Halo 4

Bungie Founder Alex Seropian spent some time telling Gamespot about his new Mobile Game Development Company, Industrial Toys. Near the end of the interview, Gamespot asked Seropian what he thought of Halo 4 being helmed by 343 Industries and Microsoft. He had this to say:

 I don’t think I can be anything other than hopeful that it will be great. We’ll see. Halo is one of the crown jewels in the Microsoft gaming IP, if not the crown jewel, so you would expect nothing less than for them to take the time needed and apply the resources needed to make it great. I would be pretty surprised if they whiffed it. Maybe it will bring a fresh perspective, and that’s so hard because there’s so many fans that are used to a particular thing that bringing something new is often…it’s hard to bring something new to a franchise that’s so established. I’m looking forward to it.
