Developers: 343 Industries
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Platform: Xbox 360
Release Date: November 6, 2012



Halo 4 is an upcoming video game and the eighth installment in the Halo franchise being developed for the Xbox 360. Halo 4 is intended to be the first of a new trilogy of Halo series games, named the "Reclaimer Trilogy". Whereas the previous Halo games were developed by Bungie, Halo 4 will be developed by 343 Industries. The game continues some time after the ending of Halo 3, and marks the return of the Master Chief as the main protagonist. Cortana will also appear in the game. The game is set for release in Holiday 2012.



Halo 4 marks the return of John-117 - the "Master Chief" - as a playable protagonist for the first time since 2007's Halo 3, as 2009's Halo 3: ODST and 2010's Halo: Reach focused on new characters and playing styles. Having been lost in space in the finale of Halo 3, John-117 and Cortana, adrift aboard the wreckage of the UNSC frigate Forward Unto Dawn, find themselves near a mysterious Forerunner planet, which was first seen at the end of Halo 3 once players beat the game on the highest difficulty setting. A key plot point will involve changes to Cortana and how her exposure to Halo and her operation beyond her natural lifespan may have contribute to her becoming "rampant." Developers revealed in fall 2011 that the game will involve a "shield world," a hollow artificial Dyson sphere type megastructure, possibly being set inside it.

The story of Halo 4 will be focused less on the Halo series' traditional straightforward first person shooter genre, instead relying more on mystery, exploration and discovery. Developers described the game as being grand in scope and scale. Forerunner elements will be featured extensively in the game's environment. Developers also suggested that the game will reveal how humanity and the UNSC have adapted to the galaxy after the end of their war with the Covenant, particularly how they have co-opted Forerunner technology.

Unlike the original trilogy, the story has been designed to be part of a three-game arc from the beginning. In addition, developer 343 Industries is aiming for a more complete connectivity between all of their future media than before, and the Forerunner Saga novel Halo: Primordium, the post-war novel Halo: Glasslands, and the terminals in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, will "definitely" have "resonant connections" to Halo 4's story. Little information has been released regarding the storyline trilogy, but developers have intended that Halo 5 will be a much darker title before the conflict is resolved in Halo 6. [Source]

The latter seems like a more genuine in-game screenshot. The first (to me) looks like it has too much detail to be in-game.

That said, I'm hoping that Microsoft can pick up from the excellent series that Bungie created.

If that really is in-game engine material, that looks pretty awesome for what is a 7 year old console!

Always loved the halo series - so can't wait for this to come out.

Yeah, there's no way this is in-game. May be in-engine, just like the Uncharted shots, but in-game it is not. Still, very hyped for this game.

Meanwhile, the PC fanbase for Halo doesn't even have Halo 3 yet. I've patiently waited 8 years to "finish the fight."

I don't think it's ever going to happen. As far as I'm aware, Halo 3 and onwards are exclusive to the Xbox console.

Except they're right. Halo has always been a :sleep: ever since it first came out(and started ruining shooters) 10 years ago. It only became popular due to the (extreme) ease of play.

As for these pics. It doesn't look like there's really any reason for these to have a whole new thread. As those models look exactly the same as they always have. And chances are any maps will look exactly the same as always when shots of those come out too.

They could be in-game....before it's scaled down for consoles that is.

First off, these screens don't look that amazing, so why the skepticism? Second they could be from the 720 version or a future PC release. No big deal here.
