[THB] Halo 4 will launch worldwide on November 6, 2012!

Save the date!

November 6 is an important date in Halo’s vast and fascinating history. For the uninitiated, that was the day the Master Chief found a weapon, a parched Grunt stumbled upon the starship, and Staff Sergeant Avery Junior Johnson discovered the answer to one of life’s most perplexing questions. He wasn’t born knowing what the ladies like, you know. (Frankie wants me to point out that if ANYONE had been born knowing what the ladies like, it would be Sgt. Johnson, possibly related to his case of Boren's Syndrome, whatever that means….)

Now we’re adding another data point to that particular date on the Halo timeline, and that’s the release of Halo 4.

Didn't they just release a Halo game last year?
And the year before that?

How much of the fight is really left? lachen.gif

ODST was a romance subplot plot side story that did not get very much love. (Came with Forza 2 when I bought my 2nd (3rd?) 360. They kept breaking right out of warranty)


Reach was an okay prequel. Got to find out what exactly happened to all the Spartans before Master Chief became the last one. (It's my brothers copy, but since he doesn't have a 360... tongue.gif)


I don't know how they will save Master Chief after knowing what happened to him at the end of the 3rd.

EDIT: LAWL.

This is the first actual Halo series game release since Halo 3 came out in September 25, 2007.

All the other games since then have been spinoffs of the series that go into different plots except Reach which takes place before Halo: Combat Evolved.

Still, Halo 3 was supposed to "finish the fight."

The Halo plot line has more potential, but a lot of care has to be taken in developing the storyline. Only reason I say this is because Halo 3 was the last game I played and it was years ago so I'm not burnt out on it.
