Despite increasingly frequent rumors
that the next Xbox will launch in 2012, Microsoft has confirmed that Halo 4 will launch as an Xbox 360 title.
Halo 4 has been given a launch
release window of Q4 2012, which is also the prominent rumor of the next Xbox’s
release. This has led some to believe that Master Chief’s latest adventure will
be a launch title for the next Xbox.
Frank O’Connor, Halo series director at developer 343 Industries, posted a response on message board
NeoGAF under the username “OuterWorldVoice,” and said that “Halo 4 will be on Xbox 360 and use a
modified core of the Halo engine(s). Not really a singular engine since it goes
through fairly radical evolutions all the time.”
O’Connor’s message doesn’t
specifically say that Halo 4 won’t be
on the next Xbox, leading some to speculate that the game will launch on both
consoles. Rumors are floating that Ubisoft and Electronic Arts are already
developing games for the next-gen console, and that a late 2012 release is
possible. A new Halo for the Xbox
Next on its launch day would certainly do wonders for sales. Read the post on NeoGaf.
