After a near 5 year absence, Master Chief is set to return this November in an all new game.
Halo 4 is the first outing in a planned trilogy, developed by 343i. it takes place 4 years after the events of Halo 3. In a recent interview Phil Spencer, corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios stated
“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..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.”
So what does the nation think of this? I’ve made my feelings on the Halo franchise known, but I will probably buy it. Do you think this will be the 360 swan song or do you think that Microsoft will try and get a whole new trilogy on the console? There have been rumours that Halo is set to be an annual franchise which, in theory could allow for the trilogy to be complete as early as 2015 and that coincidentally matches the 10 year life space that was originally touted for the console. The rumours of annual reason have been denied but history shows otherwise.
