Dualshock Nexus: For all you Master Chief fans out there, I'm sure you'd love to know that he will be returning for a fourth Halo. A Microsoft studies employee, who is part of 343 Industries, has indicated that Halo 4 is well under development.
The next halo should be Masterchief trying to survive on a seemingly deserted planet...having to eat what he can find in the wilderness and make friends with local tribes of people.
wouldn't mind that. Anything for MC to communicate more than just one line sentences.
I would buy it is the object was to get him to eat his own bullets
as in kill himself
@The Matrix LOL...That was funny but we all know it will not happen, But nice idea....That is a very good concept for a new IP.....Sell ur Idea to a game dev. U never know....Things happens in strange ways :) Any way i expect a Halo4 @ this year E3 it may b released close to the end of year may b during christmas to boost 360 sales...Just my opinion.
Thats actually a really good idea, i was just hoping they save the next halo as a launch game for the next xbox that way its as good as it gets instead of just seeing what the 360 can do.
you really think matrix's idea was good for a game? for a show maybe (basically like survivorman or man vs wild) but for game? i personally dont think so
yeah that sounds like a good idea, and make it somewhat of an RPG, reminds me of that survival thing on G-mod
I've always thought of Reach to be Halo 4, I can't be the only one can I? I mean it seems so obvious that it's Halo 4 in my eyes. It is the prequel to what started it all, and the reason for Master Chief and Halo 1.
same but then again, Reach was a prequel. So they didn't count it as a sequel, or as the 4th.
So it was Halo -1?
Halo 0: Reach
Metal Gear Solid 3 is a prequel. So his logic could be justified.
@Infernostew Good point.
Yes, Devil May Cry 3 is a prequel too, just like MGS:3, but they were NAMED that by the creators, not fans. Halo Reach is simply Halo:Reach. ODST could be halo 4 if you wanted to be a prick about it.
it could be justified as halo 4, but at the same time, i dont really think it classifies under the same category as mgs3 or dmc3 prequels cause halo reach didnt have the main character, master chief (per se), therefore its not exactly the same type of prequel as mgs3 or dmc3 having their main character in the prequel game
"ODST could be halo 4 if you wanted to be a prick about it." ODST is more like Halo 2.5 since, chronologically, it takes place between Halo 2 and Halo 3.
"I've always thought of Reach to be Halo 4, I can't be the only one can I?" Sure you did. Because you have no idea how to research for 10secs and discover where reach falls in the halo saga. http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/... knock yourself out.
Did you even read the rest of my comment? Of course I know when Reach takes place, I have been a Halo fan since it was revealed over a decade ago, and even bought the special edition Halo: Reach Xbox 360. What a jackass you are man.
@ASSASSYN 36o Are you just another person, on N4G, attempting to belittle someone in an effort to make themselves look smarter? If so you failed. (imo)
No my extensive education proves I am smart. No amount of providing a link or communicating on n4g.com with you kids will ever change or erase the 6 years double majoring in b.s. aviation proffesional pilot track and b.a. History at Henderson state university, nor the 4 years in the air force. You can't justify that off question. You appear to lack knowledge of the halo history. Don't like a link to it. Then ignore it. Feel stupid for saying what you said... that is your own damn fault.
Hmm, Halo 4 would have to be a proper sequel that continues Master Chief's story. Halo Reach wasn't called "Halo 4" for a reason, it's a prequel. But, I'd definitely like to see the story continue. Maybe a new trilogy? Also, I hope the devs bring back some of Halo 3's multi-player gold...without armor abilities!!!
It's only right for them to continue the Halo franchise. Many argue that the series died after Halo 2, but sales numbers don't lie. And if Halo continues to be an exclusive product to the Xbox 360, then Microsoft would want the developers to do everything in their power to make it happen. Perhaps they can help finish what Bungie started. Here's hoping that they don't get too far away from the original concept.
thats kinda my problem, i didnt think the first was that great. But after the second it seems like they were just releasing the games cause they knew it would bring in money, focuse on quality just kinda went away
Halo 2 was rubbish compared to Combat Evolved, Halo 3 was a far better sequel. Reach was pretty good too, but obviously lacked the character interaction from the first 3.
lol it died after rwach that pos game was an abomination to the halo series. Look at the multiplayer rankings its 4th behind mw2. Remember when halo was above call of duty.
I think bungie sold out to the casual market after Halo combat evolved. Halo 1 played more like call of duty 4 did when it came out. You couldnt just run out in the open people would drop you fast. Then bungie made the game all about the super weapons and nerfed your regular weapons so hard they were useless. Thats what got me over my fear of the way more hardcore rainbow 6 and ghost recon games where you died and you were out. It hurt to be a noob in those games they showed no mercy but i learned and then i was the hunter lol. Best thing i ever did to leave halo 2 and those other spray a thousand bullets to kill shooters.
Announcement at E3.
what part of trilogy is a 4? if thats true cant wait for god of war 4 and mass effect 4 id be happy with a spin off but if they break the TRILOGY bungie made then whats the point in saying trilogy
Well Halo: CE, Halo 2, Halo Wars, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 3, Halo: Reach. I think everyone knew it wouldn't be a trilogy.
odst is a spin off and reach is a prequel/spin-off derp
Yeah but I'm pretty sure Bungie and Microsoft knew once the game became huge, that it wouldn't end at 3.
Try a laxative.
well played (i didn't give you the disagree)
Reach was lame, I was not impressed, If I dont play as Master Cheif I feel cheated - it started with him it should end with him, no cliff hangers.
I respect your opinion; but I feel you are one of very few who didn't like that game. But perhaps its Chief-or-nothing for some people. I felt it was the best since Combat evolved myself.
If the planet at the end of H3 was Onyx (and I really hope it was), the rest will fall into place.
no bungie = no excitement
A lot of 343 Studios' workers are former Bungie employees, including Frank O'Connor who's now the creative director.
lets hope 343 spruce up the game engine. bungies graphical prowess is not really up to todays aaa standards. Halo reach's motion blurr ghosting was horrendous. the franchise is great but i expect cutting edge visuals from microsofts flagship title.
Of course its in development, microsoft has no other exclusives but GEARSOFWAR & they dont even own epic games, there will be HALO°5, 6, 7 ect ect.
I'm actually happy that Bungie isn't making this game. They have lagged behind in the graphics department this generation. It will be epic to finally enjoy a Halo game on the 360 with cutting edge graphics. And with Corrinne Yu in charge of the new Halo engine, I know it will be epic.
They've been posting job positions for a new Halo game for about a year now. Nothing in this article in new. That said, I'm hoping to see Master Chief at E3 this year.
Hoping two things ... halo 4 on next gen Xbox and, next gen xbox 2012
I'd like Halo 4 is be more like Metroid Prime and less about the muliplayer. Wouldn't mind some co-op though. And it MUST come out on the new console in 2012. It must!
Oh Man, can't WAIT to see what they're up to. E3 reveal for SURE!
The right word is hopefully.
seems interesting hope its good
i really doubt a new master chief game is in the works specially since reach came out a year ago. If it was it would take until fall of 2013. The halo combat evolved remake seems more posible to me but a new game anouncement seems like a strech unless MS is desperate against the onslaught of Sony's NGP and the Wii 2.
Another Halo aww for christ Sakes!?
What is your opinion on metal gear, and uncharted? How about mario and metroid?
I never played those I only got an Xbox but...I dunno I'm just not halo dude Halo Reach felt like the same old thing to me gotta be honest. And also a new halo every year is just not working for me. Microsoft is just proven they don't have anything else going for them.
I doubt it'll be released this year though. That would take sales away from Gears 3 i think. Maybe next year, I can wait, not in a rush right now to play another Halo so early.
Xbox portable announced along with a Halo game, that would be the best kept secret in a while
