Unlike other developers and publishers that have closed down fan-based mods, short movies and other large IP property creations. Microsoft has taken a different stance on the Halo PC fan project Installation 01.
Rather than shutting down the plan created Installation 01 project built on top of the Unity 5 engine, Microsoft and developers of Halo 343 Industries and contacted the creators of Installation 01 via Skype to discuss the project.
Church, project manager and lead developer on Installation 01 explains:
Through these interactions we have been ensured that Installation 01 is not under imminent legal threat, provided we remain non-commercial in nature and scope, and continue to follow Microsoft’s Game Content Usage Rules to the letter.
