Speaking with MTV Multiplayer, Bungie's community manager Brian Jarrard has revealed that the team considered a number of Halo options before settling on the prequel, Halo: Reach (which takes place before the events in Halo: Combat Evolved) stating "up to and including a proper 'Halo 4', where Master Chief was going to wake up from cryo-sleep and we were going to tell that story."

If you're as bored with Master Chief as I am, their about face to Halo: Reach was definitely good news, and Jarrard promises the game will definitely tie things up for fans, but won't confuse newcomers.

"By the end of this, it's all going to come to a nice, neat finish," he said. "And if people want to then go play the Halo trilogy, I think they'll have a better understanding of what's going on, but it's not required at all."

Halo: Reach is due to land in September.

I would have liked a halo 4, just so they could finish of the story properly.

They still could with a Cg movie.

im not much of a console gamer, but i did enjoy halo 90% of the time and yes i agree they could juts finish it off with a short movie which i wouldn't be suprised if they did.

Never played Halo thought it was overrated, but I might actually grab Reach I just hope it isn't overhyped

yes it was a horrible game designed for console gamers who had never played a good FPS before, and the legacy of sluggish gameplay and the snore-tastic story have continued throughout the whole series.
