Today on the final day of Halo Fest, 343 industries announced The Reclaimer Trilogy, the next three games in the Halo series. Halo 4 is a direct sequel to Halo 3, the final installment in the trilogy that made Master Chief a force to be reckoned.
The Master Chief shown at last year's E3 teaser was not the final version, 343 says that "There are many variations of Chief, what you see is not final". At the end of the panel, 343 provided a new teaser, showcasing the concept art for the game, and giving fans their first look at the new trilogy.
