    You really didn't think it was over, did you? Microsoft has confirmed that this year is the year of Halo 4. Master Chief makes his triumphant return to Xbox 360 on November 6, but Bungie won't be in the driver's seat this time around. 343 Industries has taken the helm of the main series and promise to tie together loose ends from past installments.

    "Master Chief returns to confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe," the publisher said. "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."

    Halo 4 is set four years after the events of Halo 3, and 343 Industries is already mapping out the plot for games 5 and 6.

    Credit to the Developer for aiming to create a cohesive plot.

    Haven't giving a fuck for the whole series so far, don't plan on starting to do it now.

    Halo is supposed to be a trilogy. This "Oh, this is the Reclaimer trilogy shit is bullshit. I don't mind, because I love halo,, but this is... I thought 4 was the last in the "trilogy" now.

    I usually don't play FPS's anymore, but I'm always up for some Halo. And I'm really looking forward to this next entry in the series.
    Can't wait.

    New dev may mean new interest for me, the Halo series has been very "meh" to me, really cannot see why people cream over it. I was hardly a series I'd call inventive or added anything new to the genre.

    Halo 3 was my first Halo game, and I was not impressed. ODST and Reach (though the best out of all of them) did little to change that.

    I honestly can't see this being good enough to change my mind, but hey, I'd love to be surprised.

    I have played that once or twice, though not for very long (and only on the multiplayer). It was fine, but I can't say it was too much better (then again, I only played for short durations and I'm not all that handy with PC controls, so it's tough for me to judge).

    Halo 1 will always be the best game. I hope Halo 4 isn't as shitty as the later Halo shitmakes. Halo PC :bow:

    Halo Combat Evolved/Halo Combat Evolved PC/Halo Custom Edition PC ---> Halo 2/Halo 2 PC ---> Halo 3 ---> Halo 3: ODST ---> Age of Mythology: Halo Edition ---> Halo Reach ---> Halo: Combat Evolved: Anniversary Edition --> Halo 4 --> Halo 5 --> Halo 6...

    If you count each iteration separately Halo has more games than Harry Potter has books...
