    Well, It seems there is a new Halo game that will come out
    GameSpot:Video Games PC Xbox 360 PS3 Wii PSP DS PS2 PlayStation 2 GameCube GBA PlayStation 3
    At first I thought it was about Halo Wars but its dated 13/7/08 so I assume its talking about the next Halo fps

    It'd probably be Halo 4, or maybe Halo:Fireteam, or whatnot. Halo Wars while in the same setting and probably apart of the continuity, is not a numbered sequel.

    But a Halo played semi like Ghost Recon?! Sign me up! I love squad based shooters!

    I'm thinking it'd be sort like Republic Commando!

    Well my assumption would be that the Chief's ship seen in the legendary ending crashes into the planet we see him pass. The UNSC forces are looking for Chief but so are the Covenant and maybe some new enemies might show up, new vehicles etc...

    There were rumors of a squad based Halo game not featuring the Chief.
    As long as there is online co-op I'm game.

    what the crap?

    co-optimus?

    Does 'o p' get filtered into optimus?

    What's wrong about it being cartoony? :p 

    But I thought Halo 3 was going to be the "final" chapter of the Halo Saga, guess I and some other Halo fans were wrong.

    It IS the final chapter in the Halo trilogy. Chances are Bungie isn't developing Halo 4 but another Halo spinoff similiar of Halo Chronicles or Halo Wars. For all we know it maybe set in the Halo universe but not even have Halo in the title.

    sounds pretty awesome...
    i read a while ago that Peter Jackson wanted to release three new Halo games to coincide with his movies, and like his movies, the main focus would be the marines and the thick of combat/war as opposed to the Master Chief Hero approach. this could be what they're referring to.

    Far as I know, they're developing a squad-based game like Ghost Recon. I can only guess that the MC won't be in this chapter. And I can also assume this isn't a followup of the previous Halo Trilogy.

    This is all going on memory;

    I believe Bungie's stance, just prior to Halo 3 being shipped was that Halo 3 was to be the final portion of the Chief's storyline and that other Halo games telling other stories in the world weren't out of the question.

    That said, I want a squad-based Halo shooter where you play as a group of Elites, running around killing humans. Though I suppose there wouldn't be much challenge in that -- and based on the Spartan/Elite ratio in Halo 3 online, a Sanghelli only game would be a pretty hard sell to the fanbase.

    I'll just say this: As far as I'm concerned, Master Chief IS Halo. Without him, it's a little less interesting. Now, that's not to say that they couldn't ever tell the story of the other Spartans, in game, but it's just not the same without the Chief. I'm pretty sure that they realize that.

    The Halo trilogy featuring the MC is over, maybe the Chief will be in the Halo movie... more than likely. But not in anymore games unfortunately, but it leads the way for a new primary Spartan character.

    Bungie is not doing the Peter Jackson Halo game Microsoft is. This is why Frank O'Connor left Bungie and joined Microsoft. This squad based game rumor is supposedly what Bungie is doing on it's own even though what I have been lead to believe Microsoft owns the Halo IP.

    If Bungie is doing a new Halo game of any type I would be surprised. I would have thought they would have wanted to do something the owned outright like Marathon.
