A trailer was shown at the end of Microsoft’s press conference for Halo 4
. The new game will be the first of a new trilogy following the adventure(s) of Master Chief. In the trailer, a faint voice is heard screaming for help, pleading for “John” to wake up... eventually the one and only Master Chief bursts from a cry-chamber and assures Cortana that he is here. He then armors up and prepares for battle.
The new game is scheduled to launch during the Holiday season of 2012.
