Big goings-on on the Interwebz. Rumblings, some would say. According to OXM, the next installment of the Halo franchise (Halo 4 for those keeping the score at home) is being developed by Gearbox Software, the fine minds behind Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway, Halo PC and the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Strange, this news is, though not that strange considering the recent exodus of Bungie Studios from the Microsoft umbrella. Stranger, though? The rumor is that Halo 4 is not for the 360.
OXM reports that Halo 4 is coming to Microsoft’s next console. Xbox 720? Nextbox? RRo2-D2? Personally, I’m a big fan of Bungie and all their work, so this news is more than a little unsettling. But I’d have to say it’s even more unsettling that we’re already talking about next gen when this gen hasn’t really done all that much for me.
