Halo 4 was announced during Microsoft’s E3 conference (well, about 2 hours before thanks to an early slip up on the Xbox website) but many have speculated that the beginning of the new trilogy will kick off on the next Xbox console.
That’s all been dashed this weekend, though, with the official word being that the game will be released for 360, despite mounting rumours of a successor to the console.
343 Industry’s Frank O’Connor locked down the platform on NeoGAF on Saturday. “Halo 4 will be on Xbox 360,” he said, “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.”
