Halo 4 arrives 2012 as first game in a new trilogy

first_imgHalo 4 was accidentally leaked earlier today on Xbox.com, so we were expecting a big reveal during the Microsoft E3 press conference. Unfortunately it wasn’t huge, more of a show-ending teaser.The video above was all that Microsoft was willing to show of the game. Master Chief is in a cryogenic chamber fast asleep when he is awoken by Cortana calling him as the ship they are travelling on is blowing up around them. That same ship is about to enter a portal, but to where? And will they make it before what remains of the vessel falls apart? Sorry kids, you’ll have to wait until next year to find out.So apart from that teaser trailer we know the game will arrive for the holidays in 2012. We also find out probably the best part of the news for Halo fans, which is that Halo 4 is the start of a new trilogy for the series. Meaning there’s at least two more games to come after Halo 4 probably in 2013 and 2014 to keep the momentum (and sales) going.The question this trilogy of games brings up is: do Microsoft intend to keep supporting the Xbox 360 until the trilogy has been released? It seems like the logical thing to do. But the trilogy could form a bridge to the next console with the third game being on the new format as a release title. That would be a very clever move on Microsoft’s part, don’t you think?For anyone who can’t wait until 2012 to play a new Halo game, Microsoft did have some good news. On November 15 you can expect to see Halo: Combat Evolved appear on store shelves again, only this time in remastered HD form and carrying the name Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. It will include seven of the best multiplayer maps plus the original single-player campaign.via Kotakulast_img read more
