If it had been up to Microsoft, Halo May never have been Green-lit based on the initial prototypes.

Super funny you say this, because at the time they were bought, Halo was essentially a prototype. An engine, but no actual levels or 'gameplay loop' so to speak. Macworld and E3 2000 were basically smoke and mirrors with no actual AI implemented. The story was a 2 page text document with no formatting. It was a tech demo. It was not yet a game.

Three years of tweaking, and what finally got Halo done was Microsoft giving Bungie a deadline.
