Halo 4 was a great way to cap off a decidedly inconsistent conference from Microsoft at their E3 2011 conference on Monday; a pity they blew the reveal early then! It'll be a while yet before we see or hear much from 343 on their new title, simply because Gears of War 3 is Microsoft's big blockbuster this year. That said, Halo 4 is further along in development than you might think, with Microsoft confirming it's been in the works for "multiple years".
We're all pretty excited for a new trilogy of Halo titles. With 343 at the helm, new life can finally be breathed into a series on a definite curve downwards. There's a lot of talent housed at 343, and Microsoft - so far - have been very wise in their handling of Halo. No cash-ins, no ridiculous spinoffs. Let's just hope they don't shoehorn Kinect support for the sake of it, eh? [That Videogame Blog]
