Sure, you may have finished the fight in the trilogy, and then went back to the prequel to see how it all started (and um, then the next prequel), but did you really think this cash cow of a franchise would fade away? Of course not. Microsoft and 343 Industries have officially announced that Halo 4 will launch worldwide on Tuesday, November 6, for the Xbox 360. Set four years after the events in Halo 3, Master Chief returns to confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe. This game will be the first entirely new Halo chapter not developed by Bungie, as 343 Industries took over the franchise in 2007 but have since only churned out the HD remake Halo: Combat Evolved. The Halo saga has sold more than 40 million games worldwide. on figures and apparel. “Millions of fans worldwide have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to step back into the boots of Master Chief, and, with Halo 4 leading the charge, we’re confident 2012 will be the most successful year in Xbox history,” said Phil Spencer, corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios. Meanwhile, there’s expected to be a “special segment” on tonight’s episode of Conan on TBS involving Halo.
