The title speaks for itself really. So there’s no beating about the bush, Halo 4 is coming next year.
The trailer features the Forward unto Dawn heading towards what appears to be an enormous entrance on the surface of the planetoid from the LE of Halo 3. It’s undeniably Forerunner and very much active.
The opening seconds of the trailer were actually quite confusing, showing a dormant heart erupting into life to the faint cry of a distorted but familiar voice in the background, Cortana.
The Chief springs into action, sporting some new gear and armour, but most surprising of all is Cortana, she’s lost some of her feminine flare and appears as a more conservative hologram.
