The trailer shows off Master Chief in all his glory, picking up from the end of Halo 3, and giving a hint at what's in-store story-wise.
Halo 4 is the next blockbuster installment in the iconic franchise that's shaped entertainment history and defined a decade of gaming. Set in the aftermath of Halo 3, Master Chief returns to confront his own destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe. Halo 4 marks the start of a new trilogy that begins with its release in 2012.
Halo 4 is being developed by 343 Studios, the dev studio that took over from Halo creators Bungie. The Halo trilogy has gone on to sell more then 40 million copies worldwide, a massive feat for an Xbox exclusive. It could even be said that Halo helped float Microsoft's first venture into the console era with their original Xbox.
