    Halo 4 Dated for 11/6/12

    Congrats, X-Box faithful.

    Halo 4 will be a return to the series for long-time protagonist Master Chief, who was missing from 2011's Halo: Reach and 2009's Halo: ODST. It is the first title in the series to be developed by Microsoft's in-house studio 343 Industries, which took over the franchise's reins from Bungie after Reach.

    The game represents "a new beginning" for the franchise, according to Microsoft, and is set four years after the events of Halo 3. It will see Master Chief "confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe."
    Incidentally, I have to note again that PC gamers remain Halo-less since Halo 2. On a happier note, there is this spiffy video:

    November 6th? I'm pretty sure that's Election Day. So much for Obama's youth demographic vote I guess


    Also, I'm pretty sure that this is the rumored date for this year's Call Of Duty game. Pretty gutsy move from Microsoft if this is true.

    I'm a hardcore Halo fan, and I'm really excited for this. The graphics have improved and they have a new multiplayer mode called "Genocide" which looks pretty BA.

    I wonder when they're gonna reveal the enemy. I heard that they showed the first 5 minutes and

    New screenshots revealed, I agree I'm a bit tired of the Covenant.

    This is BTW the number one reason why I've never played through any Halo game besides the first (by which I mean the campaign; I don't care about multiplayer). These days it seems Microsoft doesn't care at all about PC gaming - which is quite an irony.

    Stoked for this release, this is more or less my favorite franchise so to see it continue is great. I'm excited to see what 343 does with the story and its characters, and of course multiplayer. I'm fine with the covenant returning, to be honest it'd feel weird to play a Halo game without them in it. I do hope there is some sort of new enemy though.
