Halo 4? Xbox 720?

The gameplay of Halo 4 is much tamer than that of its predecessors.

So, the buzz about Halo 4 and the next Microsoft console has already begun and it’s no surprise given the fact that Microsoft owns the rights to the Halo franchise and that Bungie have not yet announced a new project. Although there has been much speculation about the new Bungie project, Halo 4 is apparently not it. According to Xbox Official Magazine and Nuts (oh, why do I even bother?) have stated that the new Halo title will be developed by Gearbox Software who have such accolades as Counter Strike, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 and even the PC port of Halo: Combat Evolved.

Now, it makes sense that Bungie are probably not working on the next Halo game in the main franchise as many other Halo titles have been passed on to other developers. Whether Gearbox are making it or not remains another question. A fourth Halo game would be very likely considering the Legendary ending of Halo 3. The questions arise when it is said to be a launch title of the new Xbox dubbed the ‘720’. According to various sources, we can expect to see the next console in 2010. Wow, that is soon. It feels as if the 360 is only just being utilised with titles like Halo 3 and Gears of War 2.

Microsoft have apparently said that they want to beat their competitors by utilising cutting edge hardware and releasing it before the other two of the Big Three can do so. Whether this rumor is true or not, only time will tell. Gearbox working on the new Halo? Possible. The next Xbox console released before Sony or Nintendo? Possible by looking at Microsoft’s track record. Whether this will all happen in 2010? We’ll have to wait and see.
