Elon Musk has sparked out imaginations after he started a conversation with Xbox executive Aaron Greenberg on Twitter. The Tesla CEO admitted that his favourite console game was the very popular Halo game series, and this pushed Greenberg to enquire about a possible “dream collaboration”: the mixing of the Tesla Cybertruck and the infamous Warthog vehicle.

“Sure feels like a Tesla x Halo collab needs to happen at some point!?” Greenberg asked in response to Musk.
A collaboration like this, which would see a real Warthog come to fruition thanks to the underpinnings of a Cybertruck, would be huge. Not only is the Cybertruck pulling in some serious interest, but Halo is one of the most popular video game series ever released with the Warthog being the most iconic vehicle that’s available to the character. The mix would form a pop culture phenomenon, and would be the perfect way to promote the Cybertruck before its release next year.
“To be clear this would be a dream collab for me and many fans I know. So if you like the idea, speak up and maybe something in the future could happen, who knows!?” Greenberg says.

Unfortunately, it’s unlikely such a thing would happen, with Musk having plenty of his plate for the next couple of years, including the release of the Cybertruck and the Roadster.
Gigafactory Texas is making moves into the production of the Cybertruck, with the engineering of the all-electric truck being finalised and large pressing machines on order to be able to construct the single-piece underbody.
