Halo 4 landing 6 November, Master Chief is back
The next chapter in the Halo series Halo 4 will hit the shops on 6 November 2012. Microsoft says that Halo 4 marks a new beginning for the series, in a story set four years after the events of Halo 3. That means more action for its gun-toting spacesuit-wearing protagonist Master Chief.
Speaking about the launch of halo 4, a Microsoft rep stated, “Master Chief returns to confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe,”
To date the Halo games have sold over 40 million worldwide and while Halo 4 was originally thought to be the final instalment, Microsoft is already preparing for “the next decade of ‘Halo’ games and experiences”.
Amid rumours of a new Xbox ‘720’ console, Microsoft hopes that 2012 will be “the most successful year in Xbox history”. A November release means Halo 4 will meet some tough competition.
The eleventh month of the year has been a traditional battleground for games, with publishers keen to get the big names out in time for Christmas. For the last three years a new Call of Duty game has been released in that same month, while Assassin’s Creed 3 currently awaits an 31 October release. Its going to be another cracking run up to Christmas for gamers.
So what do you think, does Halo 4 have the chops to go up against Call of Duty? Which will you choose? Let us know in the Comments below.
