Microsoft officially announced the game's release date.
“We are beginning a new saga with ‘Halo 4’ and embarking on a journey that will encompass the next decade of ‘Halo’ games and experience,” said Microsoft Studios boss Phil Spencer.
“Millions of fans worldwide have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to step back into the boots of Master Chief, and with ‘Halo 4’ leading the charge, we’re confident 2012 will be the most successful year in Xbox history.”
Most successful year in Xbox history? Pretty accurate since were talking about Halo here, the flagship game of the Xbox. No game footage yet, but it's definitely going to be the same game but with Master Chief's story moving forward, and of course some changes in multiplayer. Take note though, this is the first Halo title without Bungie. Bungie has said goodbye to the Halo series when they completed all DLC content for Halo: Reach. 343 Industries is now in charge of the new Halo trilogy.
