As you can read on Joystiq, the US OXM is rumouring that Gearbox is working on Halo 4, due for release with the next Xbox.
This isn’t the stupidest idea in the world, and has been mooted before. Studio head Randy Pitchford said in February that Gearbox had started work on a “big” game.
“It’s, like, look-at-our-line-up-and-imagine-something-even-bigger kind of big,” he said. “I’m directing it myself. I can’t mention it publicly yet. When you find out what this is, you’ll likely agree that I can’t oversell this one.”
Surfer Girl – we miss you: come back – instantly rumoured the game as being set in the Halo universe.
Bungie dropped a very heavy hint recently that it isn’t working on the next Halo game, saying:
“Halo 4? Guys, Microsoft owns the IP now. Take it up with them. Have your people call their people,” said a spokesman.
There’s probably a rolling stone here. Watch as it gathers moss.
