The most pertient quote for Massive fans from that interview is right at the bottom:
What’s next for you after Halo 4? Will you be working with Massive Attack again any time soon?
"They’ve been asking. They want me to get involved in their next album but I’m actually doing a solo album at the moment. Well, I started it before I started this game, and it’s been on hold for the last eight months but I’m going to be getting on with that again as soon as I’ve finished this and then there are a bunch of film scores in the offing so I think I’m probably going to go that way. I’ve worked with Massive Attack for 18 years, I could do with a break. But I will work with them again. There’s been no falling out at all but I just think you get to a point where it becomes stale. You need to shake things up, you need to go and grab some new experience, and then you come back together and see what you’ve got to say to each other. If you liked Mezzanine and you liked 100th Window, then you’ll like the score for Halo 4. It’s a different beast but there’s the same kind of graphic sense of mixtures of textures and melodies. It’s gothically beautiful and very dynamic."
After hearing Summertime, I'm not really keen on Goldsworthy being the defacto producer for the forseeable future. I'm hoping Neil will return by the time of the next MA album, whenever that will be.
