Halo 4 Smashing Into Xbox 360 on November 6th? (Confirmed)

By Gary Cutlack on at

According to rumours coming out of the Microsoft gaming division and its many PR people, the company is planning to announce the arrival of Halo 4 tonight, with November 6th being the favoured day of destiny.

The rumour-of-a-date news comes from developer 343 Industries and Microsoft games blogger Major Nelson, who've both claimed big Halo 4 news is due within the next few hours while referencing US talk show host Conan O'Brien, who may be in on the reveal.

It's a very important game for Microsoft. Halo 4 sees the series taken out of the hands of original creator Bungie, with development handed to newly formed team 343 Industries. We doubt it'll be straying too much from the winning formula with its new Halo. In fact, we wouldn't be surprised if its main brief was something like "Don't change anything at all."

Update: It's official -- Microsoft's confirmed that November 6th will be worldwide Halo 4 day, with Master Chief making his, presumably, triumphant return.
