They have also confirmed that this will be the start of a trilogy so Halo 5 and 6 are already confirmed.

This ^ When the Fore-runners made the Halos to wipe out all sentient life across galaxies, they basically used the concept of a Dyson sphere, to make what one would call a 'Shield World' essentially protecting themselves from the mass-genocide of most life basically. It's assumed that there will be living forerunners on the shield world when you drop down. Also it's been confirmed in the GI, that there will be a multitude of new enemies/races, and NOT just fthe additions for the covenant that we've mostly seen in previous titles. This is totally un-tapped territory, forerunner territory at that

I think there's been what 3 games since then? I bought Reach... couldn't even bring myself to play it. I doubt I'll be picking this up.
I see kind sir, you don't read threads before commenting. See my previous post in this if you care enough to understand.
Edit: Actually, TL;DR: Last being chronologically story-wise, for Bungie's part of the Halo stories. They were also contractually obligated for 3 more games after Halo 3, so ODST, REACH, and CE Anni before moving on and leaving it in MS' hands.Edited by Karasu - 4/17/12 at 3:29pm
