Back at E3 2011 Microsoft made the shocking announcement that there would in fact be another Halo game, but we haven’t heard or seen much of Halo 4 since then.

If for some reason you don’t want to/can’t watch the video, here’s a little Halo 4 primer — it’s the first in a new trilogy and also the first to not be developed by Bungie (instead it’s being handled by 343 Industries, a studio set up by Microsoft specifically to handle the Halo franchise). The game will feature the return of Master Chief and according to 343 they’re looking to delve more deeply into his character and backstory. Halo 4 is set to arrive fall of 2012.

I’m not exactly a Halo aficionado though — what do you guys think? Here’s another Halo 4 screenshot to look at as you mull over your response.
