Halo 4 finally has an official release date — and one that will be worldwide, not just in North America. The official Halo 4 release date: Nov. 6, 2012.
Halo 4 marks the return of legendary hero Master Chief. Set four years after the events in Halo 3, Master Chief returns to confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe.
“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. “Millions of fans worldwide have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to step back into the boots of Master Chief, and, with Halo 4 leading the charge, we’re confident 2012 will be the most successful year in Xbox history.”
Halo 3 concluded the original game trilogy but left many unanswered questions around the fates of the series’ beloved hero, the Master Chief, not to mention his AI companion, Cortana. On Nov. 6, fans will experience the next chapter of the iconic franchise.
Tonight, Conan O’Brien will help celebrate the Nov. 6 launch of Halo 4 with a special segment on “CONAN” on TBS at 11 p.m. PDT/10 p.m. CDT.
