Halo 4 Preview - Gameplanet

The situation surrounding Halo 4 is tense. Every semblance, every trickle of news is immediately pounced upon by media, bloggers, fans and armchair critics alike. It is promptly overanalyzed, taken out of context and used as an opportunity to cast wild aspersions on forums, interspersed with hyperbolic declarations that it will either be game of the century or a disaster of Duke Nukem proportions.

Frank O'Connor, former Halo Community Manager at Bungie, essentially explained the lean details going forward with Halo 4. Following Microsoft's previous release of a short Halo 4 trailer featuring sound designer Satoro Tojima – sound designer for Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania, no less – the video was analysed by zealous Halo 4 forum members, allowing them to cleverly deduce that the Battle Rifle would be making a comeback. Although this was proved correct in their announcement, O'Connor also pointed out that there was further conjecture and speculation regarding the fate of other similar weapons in the game being replaced.
