TVGB: "Halo 4 surprised a lot of people with today’s E3 announcement, but it would seem that Microsoft have been keeping it under wraps for a lot longer than you might think."
Of course it has, what do they think we are idiots?
It would have to get Halo 4 ready before they finish Halo 3 otherwise how would the story carry on... I don't think they would just finish Halo 3 and then try to stick a random story on top of what they built. Edit: That was Reach but it was a prequel so it didn't really matter
Is it confirmed to be for 360? I didn't see the logo. Maybe it is for next xbox
If you check the trailer on Machinima, it ends with the 360 "jump in" video
Well, i read that they have an entire book that details the entire story of Halo well past Halo 3. This same was used to make the Halo novels.
Mattrick said they are using the same engine yet again.... kind of a let down if you ask me
mint They only used reach engine in one game. Well halo hd too but its half a game ;p But i see where you coming from, new company e.t.c i would of thought they would of made a new engine.
halo 4 was in development even before Halo:CE !
This game has to be epic!!! it has to be what Halo was to the start of its trilogy, omg I cant wait! 2012!!!
Step One in the Right Direction: Give the new studio you've given your golden goose to ALL the time, resources, and creative freedom they need. I'm liking what I'm hearing. To Halo Fest at PAX!
Just like BF3, I think games that take long, get lots of polish so expect Halo 4 to be a great game.
I really think they should stop, and leave this IP with some dignity. Before I get ripped on with stuff like "well what about Killzone", all I will point out is that I called total bullsh*t when that rumor was going around about GOW4, and I likes my GOW, and that's probably why.
We're getting Halo game every year, we are getting 2 this year. The franchise is great, leave it their. I mean Halo had the entire pie, it had to share with CoD, now with Battlefield 3. It's an exclusive game so sales wise competition would have an advantage. Ok, sorry my mistake. Halo 4 next year. That doesn't change the fact Halo is becoming a yearly fanchise. My worry about milking is the lack of new stuff, a year in developement gives 9 months tops of actual time. That's not a lot. Halo should be once every two years at most, it's a truly great franchise.
getting one this year? the hd dont think halo 4 comes out till next year
Nope. You are getting one this year and one next year. Halo 4 is a 2012 title. Anniversary is this November. I think people who worry about milking tend to ignore their own advice when they are looking forward to Metal gear Solid V and Gran Tourismo V and Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and such. It's a stupid attitude that games should stop because four jerks who never even played it are worried the next one will suck.
Milking isn't about releasing games every year. It's about releasing lame games under the franchise name. You could probably call Halo Anniversary milking but Halo 4 definitely isn't.
and a better question is....IS IT RUNNING ON A ALL NEW ENGINE?! going by an interview...it isn't, since they're so tight lipped about it. Hopefully i'm wrong.
That's the question I am wondering about also. If it is on a new engine, I really am looking forward to what 343 Industries can bring to the table.
Yep, HOPEFULLY they can also take some risks and head the game to a new direction.. Halo 4 needs a new look visually and gameplay-wise...nothing dramatic, but something fresh to set it apart.
@SoapNBubbles Which interview are you referring to?
Halo 4 needs to keep the Halo look. It is very important for that certain look and style. Not worried though since Frank o Conor is there.
Absolutely, Frank O'Connor is there. Also, there are other members from Bungie at 343 that elected to continue developing the Halo Universe. The Halo Universe will definitely be stable.
343 was founded in 2007. I'm not saying it's been in production since then but it gives you a good idea of how long they've planned it for.
Im really looking forward to the Halo CE remake, more so than this, cant believe its been 10 years !
My question is if it's the start of a new trilogy. Will there be new emermies to fight or will it be the covernant and the flood?
Too bad it leaked right before the Microsoft conference after being kept under wraps for that long. And on the Xbox website, to top it all off.
I was surprised to hear 'New trilogy' when announced live...I thought- did I hear that right? This shows me that 343 wants to put their own personal touch on the series and given the awesome trailer...I have utter and complete faith. I will definitely be picking up the anniversary edition of Halo to get ready for Chiefs return.
Halo 4 without bungie! Interesting to see how it turns out.
343 is comprised of several Bungie employees, headed by Frank O'Connor. They'll be fine. The only Bungie member that still works for Bungie is Dave Letho, everyone else left or were added to Bungie along the way.
Yes, it is running on an all new engine. Corrine Yu designed the engine so you know it will be amazing. 343 Studios also employs the guy who did the music for MGS4 so you know the music will be great. Frank O'Connor (former Bungie lead) is behind the story so it's in great hands. Microsoft didn't "lose" Bungie, they just replaced them with a new studio.
Yeah, can't understand the paranoia about the engine. It's been in development for several years BECAUSE they are making a NEW engine for it.
haha, I am sure, it started before Halo1. On the otherhand, I'd rather play farmville over Halo.
so done with Halo. Bungie isnt even doing it. xbox turned kinect family style. the hardcore have moved to pc and ps3
I have a feeling in Halo 4 we are going to be fighting a lot of Forerunner type shit
