Halo fans rejoice! Master Chief will be back on the Xbox 360 on November 6th 2012. Master Chief will shed light on the Halo franchise after being absent from the past three iterations of the game - Halo Wars, Halo 3: ODST and Halo Reach. The last time we say the Chief in action was in Halo 3.
Halo 4 marks the beginning of a new trilogy in the franchise staring the hero who started it all. Halo 4 pick up four years after the events of Halo 3. The original trilogy was made by developer Bungie, but Halo 4 is being developed by 343 Industries. 343 has taken charge of continuing the Halo franchise after Bungie “moved on” and has now decided to make multiplatform games.
343 Industries has promised to deliver a true Halo experience to fans sticking to the tried and tested traditions of the series that gamers love yet adding elements to the game that will ensure that it looks like the next big thing in the franchise.
“We are beginning a new saga with ‘Halo 4’ and embarking on a journey that will encompass the next decade of ‘Halo’ games and experiences,” said Phil Spencer, corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios. “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.”
