Rumor: Gearbox Is Developing Halo 4 For New Xbox?

Illustration for article titled Rumor: Gearbox Is Developing Halo 4 For New Xbox?

Let's review: Back in February, Gearbox Software honcho Randy Pitchford put up a job listing for senior artist, adding: "I've started a new project. It's big. It's, like, look-at-our-line-up-and-imagine-something-even-bigger kind of big. 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." Before that, Gearbox posted a Master Chief statue wrapped in tissue paper for Halloween — probably unrelated at the time, but still. According to a rumor in October issue of the Official Xbox Magazine, Gearbox is developing Halo 4 as a launch title for the next Xbox. With Bungie moving out of the picture, that certainly seems possible at least. And besides, it would give Pitchford another costume to work on Freak Your Employees Out Day. Man, that's always a great day.

I can see why a new xbox is in the works if it's true.. The 360 was

rushed into market to beat Sony in the beginning and it's worked Ps3

have been playing second fiddle for a long while now. I guess Microsoft

wants to go back and revamp it and add features that should have been

in there in the first place, either way Microsoft has nothing to lose

but gain more market shares especially if they are looking at the PS3

innerworkings and trying to top it on their next Xbox, Sony will be

stuck because there is no way they will try and release a new UPDATED

PS3 anytime soon atleast not for another 10 years they say if I

remembered correctly..
