Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

Only a year ago, Bungie finally admitted they were, in fact, working on Halo 3, and had been for over a year.

Now, with the release of that game still, in all likelihood, more than half a year away, rumors of sequels, "true sequels", expansion packs and secret features are circulating through the labyrinthine tubes of the Internet.

PlayThree is citing unconfirmed, unidentified "sources close to Bungie" that state the following:

RUMOR: Halo 3 will run at 1080p, 60fps. MS apparently wants this to one-up ths PS3's claim to being the only "true 1080p" console. Bungie is supposedly testing this internally now.

UPDATE: Frankie, aka Stinkles, has smacked this report down hard in the NeoGAF forum. His response? BS. Confidently written BS, but still BS. Thanks KP at HBO for the notice.

REACTION: One can see why Microsoft would want this, but the record for past Halo games is that they will lock at 30fps and walk the line where textures and effects are more important than resolution or high framerates. That the rumor specifies that the Beta won't be 1080p is just a hedge, meaning this rumor gets to survive past that point, whereas otherwise people might assume that if the beta isn't 1080p, the game won't be. After all, Halo 3 has had a lot of work done to it so far: geometry, textures, effects. If it wasn't all done with 1080p in mind from the start, can this be changed so late in the process? And if so, why doesn't it apply to the beta?

RUMOR: Bungie is striving to make Halo 3 compatible with Xbox 360 Cores, but may have to drop to 30fps in some cases.

REACTION: That makes little sense. A hard drive is of use for caching content, reducing load times. How it affects framerate is difficult to see. Why Microsoft would want to make part of their installed base feel like they are getting a crippled version of a flagship title just for the "1080p 60fps" on the back of the box is beyond me. People who want Halo 3 will buy it regardless of those numbers.

RUMOR: Halo 4 will be a launch title for the next next-generation Xbox in 2011.

REACTION: Doesn't Bungie want to do something else for a change? Isn't the whole idea in letting Ensemble and Wingnut work in the Halo universe to give Bungie a break, so they can move on from Halo?

I don't see why they would move on beacause if you have dedicated employes that enjoy making the game their gonna want to stay on the project, and if they do why not. Beacause all their gonna want to do is make it even better than before. I guess it's pride ?

First of all, at the end of Halo 3...

[spoiler]Cortana says "It's been an honor serving with you, John."
[/spoiler]

Secondly, it's in the first novel, Fall of Reach. And each novel after that. MC's name is John and his full military designation if Master Chief Petty Officer John-117.

Ok this is probly the worst theroy that i have heard for Halo 4. You think that out every possible planets that Master Chief could crash into it would be the Brutes home world, That would be very unlikely. There is a better chance that he could crash into a flood infested planet and have to get away from it. Or he could crash into a Forerunner planet and the Forerunners try help Master Chief off their Planet, but they are fighting a Flood infestation and they are losing so they try to stop the infestation from spreading and they try to activate the rings, but they cant because Master Chief destroyed the ark. So then the Forerunners want to rebuild the Ark. But the Elites are desrtoying the rings to prevent the Covenant from coming back into power and activeing the rings. So while the Elites are destroying the rings they find the forerunners new Ark being built. And remember the beacon that Cortana dropped, the UNSC recive the beacon/SOS and goto find the new Ark and MasterChief.

I have also heard that there is another Halo game that takes place before the events in Halo Combat Evolved. I belive that it will be called Halo Chronicles. It will be about Masterchief in his early Spartan Training days, and the attack on Reach.

If you have questions with my theroy or ideas please email me at el_crayono@hotmail.com I will be happy to talk about the Halo 4 theroy more with anybody.

Re: Halo 4

Halo 4 should actually be a created game becuz of unanswered ?s like where is M.C? the gameplay would actually be most likely similar to Halo 2 (swicthing back from the M.C and the Arbiter) The Master Cheif tries to find out where the hell he is and the Arbiter assists and the humans in finding Spartan-117. That would be cool. Also has anyone seen the Secret Message encoded the In the Halo 3 promotion commercial when the Bungie sign fades out? look in to that

Re: Halo 4

why would they give up on the game if they can keep on making money on a product that people would keep buying like the game final fantasy. (now i hate the game final fantasy >p) but i want the halo series to continue even if the kill the master cheif and make more spartans it will still be a best sell like the kiddy game pokemon who by the way has continued the series for years and still makes money.

ok lets settle this once and for all. yes there will be a halo 4. why its simple money talks. do u really think with them making millions of dollars off of 3 games is just gonna end your crazy. bungie and microsoft are gonna get all they can, but its very possible halo 4 will be coming out on a new system. 360 can only handle so much and is not all that great. the next xbox counsel will probably twice as good as 360 because they had more time to make it. and there is no way on earth microsoft is just going to can its leading seller halo 3. common sense

After finishing Myth, Jason wanted to do something else...so he grabbed a small team and got to work on what became Halo. Everyone he didn't grab became the Myth II team.

Bungie's been trying to figure out how to be more than a one-team/one-project studio since the mid-90s. It would make a certain kind of sense to have one team creating franchises and another team (or two) maintaining them. I have no idea if that's what they're doing though.

For what it's worth: nowhere in this article full of unsubstantiated rumor do they suggest that Bungie themselves would be doing this theoretical Halo 4.

I think Halo 3 was vary open ended and in several ways. If Bungie does make a Halo 4 they need to end it with questions left unanswered.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

Open ended? What questions were unsolved? If you beat the game on legendary and found all the terminals, it pretty much wraps up the story and even if you didn't, Bungie basically serves up all the answers to the questions from previous games on a silver platter.

Not really. If you have read the books and play the games, you must know there's a lot of questions pending to be answered.

In a matter of fact, the newly book HALO: Contact Harvest is all about that. Some loose points are going to be tied up in there.

The same will happen in HALO WARS. And in the "HALO Project" from the Lord of the Rings master.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

Halo 3 was unsolved because of the video of at the very end. The video showing master chiefs ship floating near a planet and a bright light showing on the other side. It doesn't sound like much but the music makes me believe there is something bad coming. Master Chief also said just before he got frozen, was to wake him if you needed him again. Just because of these two scenes at the end makesd me believe there will be a fourth halo.

halo 4 is going to have more references to the books than 3,2 and c.e

there are still spartans and elites alive

besides i think that halo 4 is going to be a preqeul based on the adventures of john, kelly, kurt and linda(blue team)

I know people buy Halo for the multiplayer but they could at least, you know, watch the cutscenes.

To summarize:

[spoiler]That's not a pelican that crashes. It's Keyes' frigate, Forward Unto Dawn. The forward half of the ship crashes on Earth with the Arbiter inside. The other half has Cortana and the Chief in it, and that's where the Chief returns to a cryo bay to wait to be rescued.

Or for something else to happen.[/spoiler]

That wasn't a Pelican. That was In Amber Clad.

The ship split in half. The front half, the half the Arbiter was on, crashed in the ocean.

As for the Chief...

[spoiler]The half of the ship with Chief and Cortana didn't make it to Earth. We don't know where it is. But the Legendary ending shows them about to encounter some foreboding, Forerunner-looking spherical structure...

...but in any case, the Chief isn't dead...[/spoiler]

...so the Arbiter didn't kill him. Keep watching after the credits are over.

It's just a minor error, but, actually, that was Forward Unto Dawn that split in half. Sticking out tongue In Amber Clad was last seen in Halo 2, when it crashed into High Charity, releasing the Flood into the city.

By the way, the Dawn is a UNSC Frigate.

Anyways, Thank you for the info...But I have come to conclusions that it will lead to the supposedly upcoming Marathon series... It fits perfectly...Master Chief in Cryotube...heading to strange planet...he sleeps for 300 yrs...Cortana becomes the lady in Marathon(I forgot her name)...He wakes up and Marathon begins! It said in Game Informer® that Marathon was very similar in many ways to Halo...I hope this info helps everyone. Correct me if i am wrong!

You're wrong. Bungie has said Marathon and Halo are separate; beyond that there are discrepancies in timelines and technologies that can't be reconciled short of a "and then they went to a parallel universe" device.

Please make sure you know what you're talking about before you correct people.

First, it's "Dawn" as in "Forward Unto Dawn".

Second, if you'd listened to Cortana in that scene, you'd know that she and the Master Chief are indeed still aboard the Dawn. The ship broke in two while traveling through the portal. The forward half, where the Arbiter was, made it through and crashed on Earth. The aft portion, with Cortana and the Chief are, ended up adrift somewhere in space, apparently far from Earth, and it's unclear where they are with respect to the Ark, or what the nearby spherical structure is.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

I would say that Halo 3 should be the end.
However I think there is a lot of potential for future Halo games,
Mainly to tie loose ends up.
I would really like to see a space RTS or "Sim" like one of Microsoft's earlier games Freelancer.
I mean what would be more fun than taking out a CCS Battle Cruiser with a battle group of 3 FFG Frigates, a couple of Marathon Cruisers and a carrier.

Actually, no I don't.

What people need to do is stop claiming that this vague extra few seconds of video means anything more than "and then they had more adventures, but that's another story" because that's basically what it is. Bungie has said Halo 3 brings that story arc to a close. And it does. Let it go.

It could go either way but for all those riding on the hope of Halo 4.I don't think it will happen, the endng in Halo 3 was one of the most poetic endings that could be given to the Master cheif. He and cortana a relationship of trust and frindship.Drifting peacefully into the void of space after ridding humanity of its greatest threat. The master cheif is put to rest in a cryo tube in the middle of space drifting towards a planet that seems uninhabited.

It's a bit more complicated than that.

The guys who started up Bungie weren't in it just for the money, because when they started as a small Mac game developer, there was no money. There were no huge profits, no big salaries, no glitzy worldwide launches. They made several very high quality games before Halo.

So there are bound to be some at Bungie who are tired of Halo and would like to work on something else. If they have any pride and faith in their creative abilities, they are liable to think it's just as likely that they'll have a huge hit with some new game as they did with Halo.

From Microsoft's perspective as a publisher, sure: they'd love to see Halo games released until the cows come home. And now they own Halo, even though they don't own all of Bungie anymore.

So if there is to be a Halo 4-- or another Halo game-- will Bungie do it or not? If Bungie doesn't do it, will it be as good? If it's not as good, will it sell as well? Might it not sell as well just because people know it's not Bungie? Will a new Bungie game be as big a hit as Halo? Would people buy it just because its Bungie? Or avoid it because it's not Halo?

Even if you think money is the only consideration, the formula is not as simple. Franchises get get old and tired. There is a point where you can eventually make more money by letting something rest for awhile and doing something else, so you can come back to it with a fresh eye later.

I have no idea if Bungie or Microsoft agrees, but I think now would be a good time to let Halo rest awhile, at least the shooter portion of the franchise. We've already got Halo Wars and Halo Chronicles in the pipeline to generate cash for Microsoft. Bungie traded away their independence to Microsoft to get the resources to make Halo and a chance to mold the Xbox platform. Now they've traded away the rights to the Halo franchise to get their independence back.

Let's see what else they can do with it besides crank out Halo sequels. Because those sequels aren't guaranteed success any more than the original was.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

ok this is just the last I landed on but there is one logical way, well might be more but anyways. Lets ask Bungie to ask the Xbox players to vote on it. 'Do you the Xbox players want us Bungie to continue the Halo series with Halo 4+' Just suggesting the question not from bungie. Heres another thing make some multi-player maps connect via highway or high speed train or something. Like Last Resort, use a ferry to go over to valhanel... I know that last map is spelled incorrectly. Also make one map like a racing map so that some people that like the racing feature might play Halo. More or less i like the puzzles, the riddles and the hidden skulls but why not put some of these features on the multiplayer levels. Well tell this gets commented on PEACE.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

i think that all those sentinals leaving the ark are going to the planet onyx:[spoiler]to repair what the other spartans destroyed. It could also be that kurt did not kill all the covenant there so the master cheif drifts to the planet crash lands and discovers his spartans are there and he has to kill the covenant to get to his spartans. After he wipes out the covenant and rescue his spartans he returns to earth and thats the end of the halo trilogy.[/spoiler]PS. I Really really want there to be another halo. : )

halo4=marathon

I have herd rumors that bungie will remake the marathon seires. If you whach one of bungie's vidocs, thay say in halo 3 you will finish thes fights started in halo 1 and halo 2. if you noticed all the references to marathon in the halo series and the fact that marathon took place after the halo events... i'd say there wont be halo 4, but you will start a new fight in marathon. end of the halo trilogy, start of a new one.

How do you know that? Nobody knows where she went or why, and she only took one Spartan with her. She might be in huge amounts of trouble by now.

I tend to stick by my guns that most of the novel content is deep backstory and not intended for inclusion within the primary (game) story arcs. But if Bungie wanted to introduce Halsey, explain her significance, and make her rescue a mission objective, they certainly could.

[spoiler]Heck, it might even be a way around the issue of Cortana's death. Since Cortana basically IS Halsey, John could simultaneously save her as well as discover whatever it was that Halsey has found out. Whatever that is.[/spoiler]

As I agreed with others and put my views with Cortana hinting to it could be awhile before anyone finds them I doubt if more Spartans would some how have survived and they all team up and destroy the brutes, but, I do think that it would be at least somewhat cool and prove for an interesting story.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

Halo 3 was left with a few questions unanswered, like the planet in the background in the end cutscene of the Legendary Campaign. But also, if Bungie are going to make a Halo 4, it would most likely be a sort of flashback sort of game, because the players who have completed all Halo games, from Combat Evolved - Halo 3, have seen what Master Chief can do, however, at no stage in the games, apart from the TV commercials, that had 2 children laying in the grass at night, did it have a background story. A history, if you may. They would probably have random cutscenes during the game about Master Chiefs history, where he was trained, how did he end up to be half human half cyborg, ect, ect.. leaving the only question left unanswered is, when is the next game coming out?

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

what next gen xbox? it took 7 years to meake the xbox 360 and they wont pump a new one out in 4 years, and further more, they left it wide open for a Halo 4. he falling towards a forerunner planet, and we know nothing about the forerunners except that they made the rings and the storyline could be structured around finding out who the for runners are. Im not promising anything i just came to that conclusion by myself. So there is my opinion and im sticking to it. and i can tell its a forerunner planet because the lights on it are similar to the backside of the rings.

Think your math's off a little.

Xbox 1 was released in 2001 with Halo 1 as a launch title.

Xbox 360 was released in 2005, a year after Halo 2. So the 360 is already two years old. The original Xbox only had a lifecycle of four years.

However, in principle I agree. If we assume that the 360's life cycle will be longer, and if Bungie were to take the same amount of time to develop a hypothetical Halo 4 as it did for each previous game, which is about 3 years, then Halo 4 would come out in 2010, in the 360's fifth year.

You shouldn't take things too literally. Spark is being figurative when he says:

[spoiler]"You are Forerunner. Inheritor of all they left behind."[/spoiler]

The text in the Terminals tells of how:

[spoiler] on a distant world, humanity was discovered by the Forerunners. While that doesn't rule out the possibility of Forerunners and humans having common ancestry, it doesn't particularly suggest it, either.[/spoiler]

One should ask oneself why one is so eager and willing to believe this when the storyline itself doesn't require it.

That's unconfirmed. In fact, while it is true that:

[spoiler]Onyx is an artificial planet, a "shield world" constructed from Sentinels, it appeared normal from the outside, so that's not what we see at the end of Halo 3. It might be the Dyson Sphere the characters from Onyx enter at the end of the novel (assuming that's what happens).[/spoiler]

yes the planet could be onyx, and yes onyx could be the location for halo 4, but if the sentinels are leaving to make onyx, why would they its already made, plus, im pretty shure the sentinels went to make the replacement halo for the one M.C destoryed. but every thing else is true.

it couldnt be in the book it takes place during the end of halo 2 because Master Chief hasnt came home yet when his other team mates were plus the spartan 3 were still fighting Elits plus the world would have to been around for years because of all the living life that is on it if it was just built there couldnt have been life on it just yet.

Do you mean the Legendary ending? I don't see that as necessarily a clue to a Halo 4 at all.

Short of killing off every character, they would live on and do other things outside the scope of the story that makes up the Halo trilogy. It's not unfair to show a bit of that-- but that wouldn't change the fact that those events take place outside the Halo story arc.

Think of it like watching Frodo, Bilbo and Gandalf get on a boat for the Grey Havens at the end of LotR. That's not a tease that the next book is going to be about adventures somewhere else. It's just saying life goes on after the story ends.

All that said, maybe there WILL be a Halo 4. I think they've set it up so they can continue or not-- their choice.

Don't hold your breath, man. Bungie took 18 months after the last release before announcing their next title. And we already know at least some people at Bungie are working on something else.

People spread rumors about weapons, vehicles, and everything else anyway. Just don't listen.

This guy has an excellent point.
Bungie left halo 3 open for many possibilities to occur
Sorry to say, that includes not continuing it at all.
I'm not implying that anyone should give up the idea, just give it a rest.
After all, halo 3 just came out.
So until anyone truly has any groundbreaking information, lets leave it at that.

If you remember right, at the end of Halo 2, 343 Guilty Spark shows Keyes, Johnson, and the Arbiter the Failsafe protocol in case one of the rings was deactivated. Well what you might not remember is that when Spark did that, the hologram showed about 7 rings. It could be possible to make a few more Halo games off of destroying the remaining rings.

P.S. Why would you stop making a series of games that you make so much money off of.

Even if you didn't remember that, the control room in the Citadel also has seven holograms, one for each ring. With 04a destroyed, that still means six remaining.

Why? I'm not at all convinced the Flood are completely and irrevocably destroyed. Unless remnants of Covenant forces loyal to Truth are still actively seeking a way to activate other installations, it would seem prudent to leave well enough alone. It might be more prudent to visit them and control any Flood outbreaks, rather than destroy the installations.

I can think of lots of reasons. Because there is a point where things can and do reach a logical conclusion and should be left there, and further sequels might be looked upon as purely exploitive.

Because creative people like to do new things rather than doing the same old things over and over again.

Because at some point people do get tired of things and will want something new. I find it easy to believe that the gaming public, and the gaming press, might look at a Halo 4 or a Halo 5 at some point and say "wow, this just isn't as good/interesting/innovative as it used to be" and start doing "Bungie loses its edge" stories.

The shark metaphor applies. Sometimes to stay alive, you need to keep moving.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

this is a very good explanation, but it is a bit different from the ending of LOTR. Master Chief says to Cortana "Wake me when you need me" as he enters the cryotube. In LOTR Frodo is basically like "bye" THE END. Roll Credits. The events that occur in the secret ending leave a window open to make a Halo 4, but could be like LOTR and let gamers figure it out for themselves. Who knows? The most we can do is wait and see.

Sigh.

What so many people seem completely unable, or perhaps unwilling, to admit is that an ending of "he rides off into the sunset, promising to return if ever needed again" is a common literary convention-- regardless of whether the hero ever actually does return, or if the explicitly told story ever continues.

If one considers the Master Chief, like the Marathon marine before him, to be at least in part an embodiment of the idea of an eternal hero, then killing him makes no sense at all, and of course he lives on, ready to fight whenever called upon.

That has absolutely nothing, and I feel I cannot stress this point enough, nothing whatsoever to do with the creative and business decisions made about whether or not Halo 3 will get a real sequel.

At this point, I'm really hoping it doesn't, at least not for a good long while. I want to see Bungie do new and different things, and until I see Wingnut and/or Ensemble really nail the Halo vibe with their spinoffs, I'm leery about anybody else being able to get it right.

Plus, no matter how many times Bungie demurs, I find it impossible to ignore the idea that Bungie traded the Halo franchise for its freedom so it could decide NOT to do a Halo game, or at least to decide on its own to do something else.

Halo 4 would be, most likely, beating a cryogenically frozen horse.

That's true what you say about how Bungie left it open to whether there will be a Halo 4 or not. Think about it. Master Chief is in a blown away section of a ship floating towards what some people think of as a forerunner planet. Cortana says that she will put out a beacon, but that " it will be a long time before anyone finds us". That could be Bungie hinting to that if they make a Halo 4, then it will probably be a while. Maybe even 5 years or longer. This is all just guess work though right now. I do personally think and hope that Bungie should make a Halo 4 as do many people I bet.

also to anyone who has read ghosts of onyx i think that the sentinels of onyx are for reparing the ark
after all there immune to quick movng projectiles so if someone has damaged the ark they may try it again so the most superior sentinels are needed
the only reason they where awakened after halo was destroyed(first time) is because the ark may need protection while rebuilding it

i don't think there will be a halo 4, but a continuation of halo with mc and cortana. i heard that the planet that he came upon was onyx, a planet with great significance explained in the books, and it is a continuation of halo but not affiliated with the rings or ark, but mainly focuses on the forerunners. which by the way i don't think are humans, to acount for many blogger questions, even though the monitor or guilty spark says 'you are forerunner' to mc at the end of halo 3, but in the books there suposidliy is some conection with a forerunner hierarch reaching planet earth, finding to like the humans and built the portal to the ark on it, and suposidly built the garden of eden also, but im not sure to believe that was included in the readings.

-To prevent false information, this is a rumor, and i'm not entirely sure if it is true. i am just the messenger.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

I think they should let the common people decide let them vote on it. Ex Question:

'Dear Xbox player ___________________
We have a simple question for you. Would you like to see the Halo series continue or would you like it to move on? [Y] [N] '

Also if they do make Halo 4 add some clues to the multiplayer maps. Or make some maps continue like Last Resort and Vahanin (IK Its misspelled) Joined by a ferry system. Or make a racing multiplayer map where players race to win and have CO-OP modes where one player drives and the other shoots other drivers or obstructions in the way. Can we add have a War mode so that we can log on a server which one hundred players can just duke it out as Spartans or Elites. A specal map is needed for this so it might have to be pay to play in order to wage war on friends or other Halo lovers.

Last and least throw in a maze level on free for all so that the players are confused and on edge.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... i have the perfect answer

i think that there will be a halo 4 cos the ending points that way plus if u kill all the people off apart from spartin 117 and put a ending that can be used 4 a halo 4 u can do other games to make the gamers think awww there doing other game theye must have decided that there will be no halo 4 but use that money off the other games to fund very large all games in one or all the books out as soon as theye can to each othere they will make them bigger and better with next get software

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

you guys really need 2 get a life outside halo. i enjoy halo as much as the next person but u need to stop trying to figure out what bungie is doing and just wait for whatever it is 2 happen. and also if u read ghosts of onyx u would know that the planet is activated and anything viewed as a threat gets destroyed by the sentinels surrounding it

not legendary ending!

You don't have to beat the game on legendary to get that cut scene! Just sit the credits. (but it wont show the planet)
there needs to be a halo 4. The ending to halo 3 is almost as much as a cliff hanger as halo 2.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?rumors is an understatement

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?thats an understatement

They have to make halo 4 cuz theres so much money in halo, they left to many things unanswered, and above all else master cheif ISNT dead..hes floating twards the onyx planet or whatever and heres a new war for you. the prophet didnt die completly.the flood got him. so since bungie loves to surprise us whos to say that the flood prophet didnt get away...and they destroyed all the flood on EARTH not the other planets. they have to make a halo 4 or else the xbox would loose to much money and people would be ticked. halo 4 is coming and most of you know it.(sorry if i posted similar comments but the first didnt seem to make it to the page)

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

nothings holding back halo 4. either theres gona be sumtin weird on onyx and the forunners are having some problems or whatever who knows the planet could be full of flood and all the forunners dead. but if they dont make a halo 4 heres 2 choices to shut up and look at. HALO WARS people. and second if they dont make halo 4 look at this

after beating the game on legendary, you see the ending of master cheif drifting through space. hes in his cryo tube and cortana is there with him. this is all you see and know. the game takes place in what, 2552 if i remember correctly...
well anyways, bungies other famous game. Marathon
marathon begins with you in the year 2794. if i read correctly, the beginning of marathon starts with you waking up being cold inside a tube for around 200 years.

strangly SUSPICIOUS?!

I see the Bungie.net forums are as accurate as ever. Which is to say... not at all.

Marathon begins with the protagonist (an unnamed Security Officer) aboard a small craft called the Mirana, about to enter the colony ship Marathon.

Between the end of Marathon 1 and the beginning of Marathon 2, the security officer (along with many other humans) are kept in cold sleep.

However, in the Marathon universe at that time humanity does not have faster than light travel. The Marathon and Halo universes are separate-- as Bungie has stated unequivocally. Their Earth governments don't have the same name, there's no mention of a moon of Mars being hollowed out to make a colony ship. Humanity has far, far more offworld colonies in Halo than in Marathon despite the date being hundreds of years later. The mjolnir cyborgs in Marathon were made by reanimating the corpses of dead soldiers-- they weren't kidnapped as children and trained to be soldiers.

In Marathon the Pfhor empire stretches across the galaxy, and humanity and the S'pht track them down over hundreds of years and destroy them. There is no sign of them in Halo; no mention in any game or novel about the existence of such an empire within the galaxy.

Simply put, there's no way to make the Marathon and Halo universes coincide without saying "and then he went into a parallel universe".

OK. I got it, who ever said anything about you would be playing M.C in halo 4. dont get me wrong im sure you will play as M.C later on in the game, but what if you start out as? :(THE ARBITER): "hows that jack" <- i herd that from a movie and always wanted to say it. Think about it, there you go now the story is unraviling in your mind, hu! hu! Maybe it is maybe not. just think out side the box, hell you may end up as an O.D.S.T.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

oh you can bet you will be the chief

perhaps it has been many years since the war ended
if so cortana would have died(a.i's only liven for aprox seven years)and all other main human characters would have died
it would end up chief back on earth having to defend it from the new covenant(grunts, brutes, jackals, hunters and drones) and as they are losing they have to call for help from the elites and after a while they find out that the covenant have found another halo and then you can guess the rest

"smart" A.I only live for seven years. any ways cortana lost most of her life when storing the data she collected from the first halo. unless some how the U.N.S.C rebooted her or she her self can powerdown or something she will be dieing in halo 4.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

Remember M.C didint drift from earth to onyx, if you remember the level in halo 3, the ark and when an O.D.S.T guy says "is that what i think it is". look up you see that you are actually at the edge of the milky way. thats the name of our galaxy, in case you didint know, and so happense were onyx is. coincidence i think not, opining for halo 4, i think so? its perfect every one still wants onyx, covenant want it and im sure the U.N.S.C would like to know what happen to the fleet of ships they sent to help the spartans in the book "ghost of onyx". and hell thorw some flood in the pot, how? maybe that Truth guy lived. one person said here in this chat room, that he could have lived maybe he did. maybe he escape with a pelican and landed on...... no not onyx, a covey planet and what ever is left from the covenant go to onyx to find some thing to destroy the flood with. and from there the Elites come to fight the brutes or flood which ever. and who do they find? A fleet of U.N.S.C battle ships with hard core O.D.S.T, MARINES, AND WITH ALL NEW GUNS AND EVERY THING. And most important, MASTER CHIEF with his B.R ready to kick assss old school. it has every one in it. i know, unliky what ever think about it think out side of the box. dont be scared.

I don't think there is any 'Covenant' any more. The forces led by Truth and the Brutes have been defeated. As the strongest remaining faction it seems logical to me that the Elites will carry the message of the true nature of the Array to the other elements of the Covenant, and either assume leadership of the group, aimed at a different purpose, or it would simply be disbanded.

A game more politically minded than Halo might examine the potential for new conflicts arising from the disintegration of the Covenant.

It is also not entirely made clear whether the word 'Covenant' refers to all members of all species mentioned as part of that group, regardless of location, or whether the 'Covenant' is actually the collection of individuals, regardless of race, who are part of the Covenant fleet and the residents of High Charity. If that is the case, the Covenant may be all but destroyed at this point.

Like any good cinema villain, the Flood could always come back if the authors want them to, one way or another. We already know there are still Flood loose on Delta Halo.

jake_014 wrote:

Return from where? You mean Onyx's sentinels? I'm fairly certain they went to the Ark to assist in the construction of 04a. I suppose, now that the Ark is damaged (if not destroyed) perhaps they will contribute to its reconstruction, if they are able.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

I just have a feeling that the ending with Master Chief getting into the cryotube wasn't nessicarily to leave it open for Halo 4, although i'm not saying that won't happen, but maybe for a sense of continuity and circularity. See, Halo opens with The Chief getting out of the cryotube on the Pillar Of Atumn, and Halo 3 ends with Him entering the Cryotube, and telling Cortana to ''wake him when she needs him''. No, I'm not saying its a time loop or anything like that, Just saying it seems to kinda fit and maybe Bungie liked that

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

May be you are right, but that is technically not the ending. The actual ending was when you see F.U.D drifting toward a so called planet in which i believe to be onyx, that right there opens all new possibilitys for a halo 4..... P.S if you would like to see this ending just beat the last level on legendary, just keep waching even after M.C gets in the freezer.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

I thank of it this way, when the master cheif shows his face or they show him dead,I do beileve that they will make a Halo 4. If they don't I will always wonder what happened to the cheif after he went into that cryo tube. I also herd about Halo 4 when I was playing PC Halo. I was in a sniping game in Danger Canyon about 4am and some guy came in wanting some ideas for weapon that would be used in Halo 4. He also said something about Halo 5 and he said they were working on it. I hope that this is true becuase I love Halo, and I would love to see them tell me what happens next
sencierly,
Justin

P.S. If there is a gun that shoots out a saw blade. That is the idea I gave Him to put in Halo 4.

who said the arbiter acctually made it home
prehaps he just escorted the elites home before going to find the chief
maybe he realised that chiefs body was not in his section of the forward unto dawn and he thinks he could be alive
prehaps he feels he owes it to the humans

halo 4 could be based on finding the chief leading to another cliffhanger ending meaning halo 5
maybe it is going to be six games

You're grasping at straws here. One can place anything they like in a "what if" statement.

What if Arbiter really just went to Starbucks for a latté?

What if he sat on a pinhead?

What if he ran for President of the United States?

Nothing he does or says indicates he is going to look for the Chief. Nothing he does or says indicates he feels he "owes anything" to humanity.

He says "take us home".

The logical assumption is-- they're going home. All else is castles in the air.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

Guess what! I have just received confirmation! There IS going to be Halo 4!!! It is coming out 2010, it will be based around Finishing off the flood. The covenant is on our side, and you will be able to play as Arbiter, MC, and a Brute Captain. I think all of the Covenant will be playable in multiplayer. (Yes, you will be able to be a little Grunt!) I don't know much info, I got it from my friend who is in a clan fundedby bungie, idk how but he has been through many beta tests!

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

I think it would be a great idea for microsoft to make the Halo books into games. Just "Fall of Reach" and "First Strike" also maybe "Contact Harvest". They can make "Contact Harvest" like call of duty, just better. Well naturally it actually would be better, cause its Halo. One big down side would be no Master Chief. Wait, wait forget "Contact Harvest" with out M.C. something like that would be like blaspheme. Instead how about if they make Halo 4 into a tease game. Yha i got it, while M.C. is in cryo, he dreams about the events that took place in "Fall of Reach" and "First Strike". Hell why not, this will tell the people that never read the book how John became a Spartan and how the Spartan program started. Also for sentimental value how he met cortana and johnson, the death of johnson can trigger the "Fall of Reach" dream. At the end of the game thats when the player gets played, M.C. wakes up and you find your slef in the middle of the crash site of "Forward Under Dawn", at this point its all third person and you see the front side of Master Chief. M.C. with all his luck finds his assault rifle right next to him, picks it up than stands. He looks up than looks at the camera and gives that kick aaasss look he gives, even though he still has his mask on, you can still tell. Than he loads his rifle and sticks it on his back, than he turns his hands in to fist's and from there the camera starts looking up towards the bright blue sky and you see a hole shitttt load of covenant ships. or brute ships same thing. Nice.

Either this happens or a movie I realy dont care but I want one of them. I need my Halo fix. hahaha.

Just to be clear M.C. can dream, it tells you so in "Halo The Flood" book, while he is in cryo.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

ok I agree that its hard to believe that they would create another one because halo 3 is "finishing the fight". But with the ending on legendary its impossible to believe they wouldn't make another. But As most have said it wouldn't be under the name halo. The whole halo conflict is over. Now its the new planet. But if a sequel came out, I recommend to bungie. Please please make the campaign a lot longer and more challenging. Don't get me wrong I love multiplayer. But I love the story line and was a litle dissappointed about how easy, fast, andopen ended it was. Oh and another idea for multiplayer create AIs!!! I play online but itwoild be great practice for when online isn't available. They could be programmer to be like an online player( not so computerish) oh and one more thing, which could still be put in halo 3. For some reason I love glitches I don't know why but super bouncing, getting out of the map ECT was so much fun to learn and discover, it would be cool to make a few or one big glitch level where you have to discover them.

Last note. A quick idea some one needs to make a paintball arena based on halo 2 and 3 levels. Imagine paintballing on lockout or the pit?
that's massive amounts of cash.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

OK, how dose this sound. While in core of onyx, which is a shield to protect from the devastating effect from the halo's and flood. Doctor Halsey the marine and the spartans 2 and 3 are traveling on the mysterious new world that is in side onyx. They been doing this for about a mounth, give or take. Suddenly a very loud and enormous explosion erupts overhead. Than out of the hole that was made a grav lift shoots down and hits the ground. From there bruts start poring down, riding along with them, an army of: hunters, jackals, grunts, and a fleet of banshees. Out of no were a second explosion brakes yet another hole through the so called shield world. This time a green grav lift drops from the hole, along with drop pods, pelicans loaded with tanks, warthogs and in side probably dozens of marines. But the vessels looked new not just off the assembly line new but more evolved kind of new. Several drop pods landed near the doc's group, in stead of the naturally engraved O.D.S.T some thing eles replaced it, the lettles O.D.S.S were there. Than expecting marines to pop out, something eles did, it looked like an O.D.S.T but it had green armor and stood about 7 1/2 foot tall. It was a spartan, all of them are, not just the ones in front of them but the whole army that was sent down was. The one in front ask for there names, than called someone and said he had found them, gave his coordinates and told to send down the general. While he did this the doc sized the man up and could tell he was a spartan from the way he moved and spoke. She notice something eles about him, his IFF tags read as a spartan but he had a number code that said he was "spartan 22335" how many spartans are there she wondered, and how the hell could there be so many in such a short time. When the man finished talking a pelican started approaching them along side it was 20 fighter ships. The pelican landed and about 30 spartans jump out and secured the area and finally one more spartan stept off the pelican, he had stars every one saluted expect the doc. She held out her hand, this general stood 7 feet tall, had green spartan armor, but his looked old compare to the other spartans but new at the same tine. The doc said in a low yet soothing tone, "hello john", OMG. she spoke again, "how long has it been", 117 answered, "85 years mam".

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

i think it would be cool if the planet that master cheif was floating towards was the remains of the planet Reach and it was infected with the flood and master cheif had to fight through flood infected spartans. and since im speaking my opinion, i think the upcoming game, halo wars, will not be as good as the original halo games. it looks like a starcraft game, and those type of games are meant for the PC. halo is meant to be a first person shooter game.

that planet at the end could be onyx after all. remember the halo 3 level "The Ark" at the end a cinematic shows a lot of sentinels leaving the planet, SPARK says "these drones have a priority task." they could be going to make onyx

this person was not thinking. it's obvious spark either found out about instalation 04 being rebuilt and wanted it done sooner or just started rebuilding it.

for all the REAL halo fans out there who have read the books and played the games you would know( and think some of these people are stupid) that onyx was built way before halo 2. because in ghosts of onyx it talks about blue team on onyx fighting sentinals and also talks about the elites fighting the flood and brutes when the rebellion starts. i think the planet you see the chief going to is a whole other forerunner/human ( because if you have played the games and read books you know that too) planet. i mean i believe onyx was completed destroyed except for the sphere blue team was safley located into. (which could be what we saw too maybe) which is what i think is another halo safe zone like the Ark. either way bungie made a stupid decision making that extra scene if they are not making a halo 4. unless that is what halo wars is(which i do not believe)

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

I believe that halo 4 will be coming out in the future and even some new storylines are being made to make sequals to halo 4. AND IF U SEE THE ENDING OF HALO 3 ON LEGENDARY and baught the specail addition of halo 3 you get a book of where the aliens come from and because of that i think that the planet that he lands on is where the hunters are from.

Yes, I've SEEN THE ENDING OF HALO 3 ON LEGENDARY.

Have you seen this thread? You know, where everyone else and their dog mentions that ending, which actually doesn't show much of anything?

Re: Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

there is chances of anything happening with what bungie wants todo. wether they want to say halo is done. or continue making a halo 4 or even multiple more.. or they could even go on with just making side games that have the same "units" as halo like halo wars. hell id love to see it where the master chief becomes a mercanary and you can buy weapons, armor, vehicles, space ships and various other things like. upgrades for weapons shields armor and whatever else that could be possibly thought up. but anyway who knows anything is possible it s all just left up to the creative minds of bungie and what they decide they want to put into a game or if they even wish to make it.

i think how they should make halo4

i think they should make a halo4 because halo 3 evry body keeps saying master chief dies. but im love the halo trilogy. but halo4 should be more like halo2.why?because halo2 to me when i first got halo 2 i never felt bored playing it.halo 3 when i was first playing it i was very exited but then after about like 6 weeks later i got bored i mean like i saw the ending i didnt like when sgt.johnson dies.theres been a rumor on you tube if you beat the last level on legendary mode there will be a secret video of master chief when he dies.but when i beat it on legendary mode there wasnt a secret video.SO THATS WHY I THINK THEY SHOUL MAKE A HALO4.PS.HALO4 IS GOING TO BE THE BOMB.And i cant wait till 50 cent blood in the sand comes out.halo is the most eletriefieng game in sports entertainment!!!!!!!

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

No Guys it will the only way halo comes back is a prequel at the end of legendary he is seen floating with cortana to an unknown planet most likly planet reach where the spartans actually were "developed" there and if the is more spartants then most likely more fights and i believe the flood is still alive..its the FLOOD the never die so the covenant is more than likely to still be around somewhere in the universe.....eigther way there will be another halo game but more like a prequel than a sequel

We already know it's not the same timeframe as Halo Wars. Halo Wars takes place decades before Halo 1.

Reach takes place days or weeks before Halo 1.

In the novelizations we do see other Spartans besides the MC, and there's every reason to believe that Reach will focus on characters besides the MC. Possibly Spartans, possibly ODSTs. We just don't know yet.

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

Agreed. I would also like to propose a hope of the storyline (Of Halo 4 of course). Chief of course is in the cryo-tube after the explosion of Halo. So what I am thinking is the blast sends him to a faraway planet. I'm not saying this happens over a year. Oh no. The trip takes 10 years. So here is where the excitement comes in. As you land on the planet (Lets call it Reach 2) Chief learns that the covenant have betrayed the humans (via comm's). But it is an old transmission so he cant radio back and the comm's are trashed. So he sets off on this planet to see if he can establish a solid communication to the humans. But Cortana, filled with the raw emotion of loneliness and suffered memory damage, seems to know this planet. So you have to rely on Cortana. But apparently she has become corrupt and her memory is damaged. So she may be leading Chief somewhere he won't want to be...
Enemies:
Brute
Jackals
Grunts
Elites
Flood (Yes flood)
King of flood
Buggers
Skirmishers
Allies:
Arbiter (Follows Chief's cryo-tube/ship)
Cortana (Although corrupt)
And Yourself (Chief)

Re: Halo 4 Rumors... Already?

I have an idea for Halo 4 storyline. Master Chief awakes on board the ship fragment. He has no idea what time it is, or where he is(later revealed to have crashed on Legendary Planet). Cortarna is missing, and Mendicant Bias guides him, via prerecorded transmissions(he had been planning for Chief for quite some time) through ambushes by mysterious creatures Mendicant Bias calls "Opaques" to a stranded Spartan-3 team named team Ocelot. Team Ocelot reveals that the Covenant has captured Earth, blasted their ship out of orbit, and threatened to start killing people and burning areas unless their demand for a new oracle is met. Worse, the Arbiter has gone missing, leaving his people in turmoil and unable to help. Master Chief must now find a way back to Earth, find the Arbiter and Cortarna, defeat the Covenant(or meet their demand for an Oracle), and discover the truth about - well, everything.

Enemies:
Opaques
Flood
Brotherhood(a collection of rampant AIs)
Covenant
Elites
Forerunners
UNSC

Allies:
Team Ocelot(like Noble Team - and yes, they all die by the end)
Mendicant Bias?
Insurrectionists - yes, insurrectionists
UNSC
