In the world of gaming things do not get bigger than Halo. Microsoft has announced that Halo 4 will hit the shelves on November 6 and has confirmed the iconic Master Chief will return. The game will be set four years after the events of Halo 3 and the Master Chief will return to confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe.
At the end of Halo 3, there were many unanswered questions regarding the fate of the Master Chief and his AI companion Cortana. Many believed that the ending in Halo 3 signaled the death of the Master Chief, however this is clearly not true anymore.
The Master Chief is among the most iconic gaming characters in gaming history. He is right up there with the likes of Mario, Zelda, Snake, Commander Shepard, Gordon Freeman and Sonic the Hedgehog.
Halo is undoubtedly the most popular video game franchise on the XBOX 360 platform and Microsoft believes that with Halo 4 coming this year, 2012 could perhaps be the most successful year for its aging console.
As of now Microsoft is only talking about the Xbox 360 launch of the game, however one will not be surprised if the game even hits the Windows PC community especially with the imminent launch of Windows 8 in Q3 of 2012.
