Rumour - Source: Halo 4 is already in development

Sarcastic Gamer reports:

"At some point you'll just have to trust us on some of this stuff. We have to protect our sources to keep them from being fragged by their employers or associates.

A very good and anonymous source tells us that Halo 4 is already in full development over at Bungie. I wish to God She/He/It had more details to share but at this point all She/He/It can confirm for sure is that Halo 4 is an official project being developed by Bungie, at this very moment.

With more than 20 million copies of Halo 3 sold worldwide, I know it's a no-brainer that the series would continue somehow. It's nice to get this sort of reassurance from a source who has never been wrong for us before.

If we get more details, we'll share them. If She/He/It is wrong… They'll be quietly disposed of..."


The story claims 20million copies of Halo 3 were sold which is obviously incorrect. It is most likely a typo that is meant to refer to the entire Halo franchise or may even be a poor attempt at humour?!

But nice to know what Bungie's up to nonetheless. I wonder if we'll get to truly "Finish the Fight" like the ads promise. Or maybe they'll wait for the new "fight" to begin around 2010-2011 with the NextBox launch?

What do you guys think?

NegativeCreepWA3701d ago (Edited 3701d ago )

The Covenant was destroyed in Halo 3, so I don't where your coming from saying the fight wasn't finished. Bungie just left it open for a new fight to begin.

donator3701d ago (Edited 3701d ago )

Might as well. Halo 4, Metal Gear Solid 4, Grand Theft Auto 4, what else can we make a 4th iteration of?

DarthTigra 3701d ago

And devil may cry 4 and dead or alive 4.

DarthTigra 3701d ago

Nba street homecourt is a number 4 same with the new midnight club

Superfragilistic3701d ago (Edited 3701d ago )

Last time I checked the Humans weren't just fighting the Covenant, did you finish it on Legendary and get the ending that reveals where Master Chief is headed?

EDIT: Please explain the disagrees.

kazuma3701d ago

the remake of final fantasy 4 =D

donator3701d ago (Edited 3701d ago )

Maybe the Master Chief can battle five PMCs (Private Military Contractors) on Earth that are run by a dummy corporation known as the Covenant, who we thought was destroyed in Halo 3, but lives on in the body of an amputee soldier who transplanted a Covenant arm onto his body.

The Covenant wants to destroy the central AI, Cortana, which secretly controls everything on Earth, including Master Chief, without their knowledge. Cortana, not wanting to be destroyed, sends Master Chief to kill the guy who has the Covenant's will instilled in him and his PMCs.

At one point during the game, he'll have to pass through a microwave hallway. His helmet visor will eventually burst finally revealing the face of Master Chief. He's an old man...

Lifendz3701d ago

Or is it coming to the next console? Halo 4 news is exciting. Glad to hear Bungie is the team making it too.

SixTwoTwo3701d ago

Halo is only one of the most successful franchises ever made and common sense tells you that part 4 was going to come eventually. Anybody who thought Halo 3 was the last Halo game is retarded.

Shankle3701d ago

Soul Calibur 4 + Timesplitters 4

GiantEnemyCrab3701d ago

@1.9: That would be a horrible story. Where did you make that up from? OH wait!

xionpunk3701d ago

@donator we need a Jak 4

Oh and yeah like no one expected this. Just like no one really expected MGS4 to be the last Metal Gear.

plenty a tool3701d ago

i'm thinking that perhaps a launch title for the next xbox. if microsoft could release a new machine complete with halo4 and gears3 as launch titles.....them machines would just fly off the shelves.

i'll be getting one either way.

Nevers3701d ago (Edited 3701d ago )

The Covenant might be in tatters and possibly allied with us but I expected way more for the third and "final" installment's ending. That stupid "ball" boss was a huge let down and that giant tentacled blob's extermination wasn't really shown. Besides... if you got the true ending you'll know Chiefy's still alive and needs to get back home and I'm sure he's gonna have to blast his way there.

Spider-man 4
God of War 4
Star Ocean 4
PlayStation 4
Final Fantasy XIV (X + IV)

shazam3701d ago

Yes the Halo trilogy is a prequel to the Marathon trilogy. If you played Marathon on a Mac back in the day you would realize that Master Chief looks awfully familiar.

mistertwoturbo3701d ago

hey shazam, i used to play marathon as a kid. that was my first introduction to "first person" shooters before doom. i'd buy a 720 just for Halo 4 if it truly is in the marathon world. there'd be too much nostalgia for me

season0073700d ago

11 or 12 now, they have actually changed the name to the year because the name would be weird if its winning eleven eleven lol..

One trick pony status... CONFIRMED!

Fishy Fingers3701d ago

In Halo, Bungie have one of the most successful/popular franchises of modern gaming. Do you really expect them to change their formula?

Game production on this scale has become very expensive, to achieve the funding/support required you need to be able to guarantee a return on that investment.

While I would love to see Bungie working on something new, you can't blame them for sticking to what they know.

pwnamon3701d ago

There is no doubt that Halo 4 is in development, it's like claiming the sun will come up.

But it's nice to have reassurance.

Drekken3701d ago

I understand that it is a proven formula... but after Halo3 I was hoping they would put something new out. I like devs to switch it up.

Superfragilistic3701d ago

Kind of how I feel about Kojima. I'd really love him to leave MGS4 as the perfect closing chapter and move on to a new IP.

But then again I'd still probably buy MGS5, just like I would Halo 4, and all the other sequels like GTAIV, Resident Evil 5, DMC4, SF4, COD4, etc...

Xi3701d ago

bungie is working on a new IP right now too, one that's been in development since the end of halo 2.

and bungie has made some of the best games ever, marathon(probably the most revolutionary fps ever made), myth 1/2(which was the first real time tactics game), oni (which was never fully completed).

Hagaf223701d ago

mario was once the biggest gaming franchise and look at it now... i would hate to see a great title like halo fall to that...

20 million copy's? News to me lol

NegativeCreepWA3701d ago

I hope they change the art style for the new one. I don't think they could make it look any better if they stick with the same one, kind of like DOA.

The BS Police3701d ago

I think they meant that all 3 Halo games combined have sold over 20 million copies.

Superfragilistic3701d ago (Edited 3701d ago )

Yeah that's what I thought. Although I checked my watch to make sure it wasn't "Fiction Friday" first! lol

Anyway added an update to the story, :)

LastDance3701d ago (Edited 3701d ago )

maybe He just got confused and thought halo was just one big game.... It's not like there's a difference.. HAR HAR...

It's okay ill go to the open zone myself.

Edit: They need to put the jumping back like The original halo.....I liked that much bettter

JVIDICAN3701d ago

fiction friday is indepedence day
