Halo 4 Will Be The First Of The Reclaimer Trilogy

Whether you’re a fan of Halo or not, it is interesting to take into consideration what Microsoft plans to do with the franchise. Will they try to milk it on an annual basis like Activision does with Call of Duty? Or will they focus on expanding the mythos and universe like 2K Marin does with BioShock? One thing is for sure, Halo 4 is just the start for a brand new trilogy featuring brand new mechanics, weapons, vehicles, enemies and items.

In an article on OXM UK, it appears Halo 4 will be the first in a new series of adventures dubbed The Reclaimer Trilogy, which will focus on Chief’s and Cortana’s long-awaited meet-up with the Forerunners and Forerunner technology. Supposedly, the new game will see gamers venturing through old Forerunner structures and according to 343 Industries, they won't be empty.

One thing that I really hope doesn't appear in the new game is the Flood. I know it seemed like they were dealt the final blow in Halo 3 but I can easily see them being recycled for the fourth game. If they do come back 343 really needs to work something out with those guys to make them less annoying.

Halo 4 is set to release exclusively for the Xbox 360 next year, with the remake of Halo: Combat Evolved titled Halo Anniversary releasing this November. And if the rumors are true that this is the first in a new trilogy...does this mean the trilogy will finish itself out on the Xbox 360 or will the next two games transition over to the Xbox 720? Only time will tell. You can keep up to date with all things Halo over at the Official Website.
