Microsoft has today revealed the highly anticipated release date for Halo 4 – Nov. 6, 2012.
Master Chief is set to return in what the company has said will be the beginning of a new trilogy. Set four years after the events of Halo 3, Master Chief must face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the universe.
With Bungie no longer at the helm, Halo 4 is being developed by 343 Industries.
“We are beginning a new saga with ‘Halo 4’ and embarking on a journey that will encompass the next decade of ‘Halo’ games and experiences,” said Phil Spencer, corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios. “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.”
To further promote the game, Conan O’ Brien will celebrate the game’s impending launch with a special Halo 4 segment on Conan on TBS, tonight at 11 p.m. PT.
