The rumors keep coming back. There is inevitably going to be a Halo 4, but it’s not a matter of when this thing is released that is the most important right now. As many of you gamers are aware, Bungie left Microsoft to start their own company. With the seperation they lose the rights to the Halo franchise.
What good could the game be without it’s creators? It’s the fourth game in the series, and they just lost all their staff. The game is being supposedly being handed over to a good company in Gearbox, creators of the Brothers in Arms series, but they game will not be the same.
What could they do to possibly keep Halo 4 at the same level of Halo 2? Even making the game as good as Halo 3 (worse than Halo 2 in my opinion) would be a success. They can’t go overboard on the graphics because that’s not Halo. If they look too human like in Gears of War the setting wouldn’t feel right. They need to get the gravity, proportions, and most of all, weapon powers as accurately as they can to what we are used to.
Halo 4 will bring something new to the table. We can probably expect many things that are not part of the game to be introduced this late into the series. Anything with Halo is worth a purchase, but how long we play the game is a whole different factor. Let’s hope that Gearbox is capable if these rumors are true.
