In a long, rambling, and entertaining blog post, the Halo
team announced a launch date for Halo 4 (er, wouldn’t that actually be Halo 8?). November 6th, 2012 is the big day when the game launches worldwide, and it marks the beginning of a new trilogy in the Halo series.
The date was not chosen by accident. According to the post:
November 6 is an important date in Halo’s vast and fascinating history. For the uninitiated, that was the day the Master Chief found a weapon, a parched Grunt stumbled upon the starship, and Staff Sergeant Avery Junior Johnson discovered the answer to one of life’s most perplexing questions.
In case you’re afraid you’ll forget, here’s a handy video that will help you remember not to.
Conan O’Brien is getting in on the fun, too. On tonight’s show, Conan and his trusty sidekick Andy will apparently be entering the Halo universe. One can only imagine the hijinks that will ensure.
One thing we’re pretty sure of, though, is that Conan will be on the red team.
