Halo 4, the first in a new trilogy of Halo games, will be released worldwide on November 6th, 2012, Microsoft announced today. Unlike the prior three Halo titles, Halo 4 is being developed by 343 Industries, a division of Microsoft Game Studios established in 2007 to manage the Halo franchise.
“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.
