Microsoft confirmed rumors Monday morning by announcing the next entry in its popular Halo franchise of first-person shooters.

At its E3 press conference, the company announced Halo 4, the first game in the main Halo series to not be developed by series creator Bungie, instead being helmed by its internal studio 343 Industries.

Halo 4 is "the dawn of a new trilogy for Xbox 360," Microsoft's Don Mattrick said of the new title, suggesting a long shelf life for the nearly six-year-old console.

The announcement follows news that the company will release a remastered version of the original Halo.

Im all for the continuation of the series. I absolutely love halo. but having 3 titles released once a year for the 3 years straight kinda puts a drain on my wallet. especially since this fall has almost every series ive enjoyed playing all having a title released at the same time.

...I just lost $200

10: "Hey mate, bet you we'll see what happens to Master Chief after Reach. I'll put money down that Duke Nukem comes out the same time"

"Ok, sounds good!" I'm thinking Duke Nukem isn't going to really happen anyway. Guy from UK then sends me a pic of him with a wide grin, pointing at his computer screen to this very site.

Back to the subject at hand, I can't wait for this. Assasin's Creed and Halo seem to do pretty well with sequels, even if Reach (imo) didn't really live up to expectations.
