Halo 4 release date set for November 4th


 Microsoft Studios has announced that Halo 4, the newest entry for one of the Xbox 360's biggest exclusive franchises, will release around the world on November 6th.

Halo 4 will be the first numbered released for the series since 2007, as well as the first new game release to be shipped by developer 343 Industries, which took over the first-person shooter property from Bungie several years ago.

Since opening in 2007 as a subsidiary of Microsoft Studios, 343 Industries has shipped a remake of 2001's Halo: Combat Evolved and the Halo Waypoint Xbox 360/mobile app. It's also released updates for 2010's Halo: Reach developed by Bungie.
