The countdown has begun for the landmark entertainment event millions of fans worldwide have been anticipating for more than four years. â€œHalo 4,â€ the hotly anticipated sequel to the iconic franchise that has shaped entertainment history, will launch worldwide on 6th November 2012.
â€œHalo 4â€ marks the return of legendary hero Master Chief, named by Fast Company as â€œone of the most popular characters in gaming history,â€ and aims to set a new standard for blockbuster interactive entertainment. Set four years after the events in â€œHalo 3,â€ Master Chief returns to confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe.
Developed by 343 Industries, â€œHalo 4â€ marks a new beginning for the landmark entertainment franchise that has sold more than 40 million games worldwide and inspired multiple New York Times best-selling novels, live-action shorts, comic books, action figures and apparel.
â€œWe are beginning a new saga with â€˜Halo 4â€™ and embarking on a journey that will encompass the next decade of â€˜Haloâ€™ games and experiences,â€ said Phil Spencer, corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios. â€œMillions of fans worldwide have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to step back into the boots of Master Chief, and with â€˜Halo 4â€™ leading the charge, weâ€™re confident 2012 will be the most successful year in Xbox history.â€
â€œHalo 3,â€ the biggest consumer product launch of all time when it released in 2007, concluded the original game trilogy, but left many unanswered questions around the fates of the seriesâ€™ beloved hero, the Master Chief, and his artificial intelligence companion, Cortana. On November 6th, fans will experience the next chapter of the iconic franchise.
