Halo 4 to be unveiled in February

first_imgWith Halo: Reach having been released in September 2010, and 2011 being completely Halo free, you probably guessed that something was going to come from the franchise this year.Of course, with Bungie no longer developing for Halo the future path wasn’t as clear as it could have been, but we all know that the next title would be in the capable hands of 343 Industries, and it was expected to see a Holiday 2012 release.Above is an early hint that everything is on schedule and that we’ll get a lot more information on the game quite soon: it’s a Finnish magazine graphic saying that on February 29 Halo 4 will be on full display.Don’t speak Finnish? Here is a rough translation:Halo 4 and other new products [will be] on display at the Xbox 360 Spring Showcase event in San Francisco. Remember the play to the podcast. @Kaban0ssi who tweeted the image asked, “Onko varmaa tietoa?” — is this information certain — to @pelaaja, the magazine that published the image. The magazine does not seem to have responded, at least via its Twitter account.The Spring Showcase unveiling, on the Leap Year-specific date of February 29th, would be a big move for Microsoft, with the company opting to show off the game at its own event as opposed to waiting for a major show, like E3. It would be in keeping with Microsoft’s new strategy of controlling its own message and stepping away from shows, CES for instance, though. Microsoft has done these showcases in the past, and they can range from major events with top-level executives speaking to smaller ones that are focused on giving industry people hands-on time with upcoming products.via neogaflast_img read more
