Microsoft has announced that Halo 4 the hotly anticipated sequel to the iconic franchise that has shaped entertainment history, will launch worldwide on Nov. 6, 2012.

Master Chief returns to confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe. Developed by 343 Industries, Halo 4 marks a new beginning for the franchise that has inspired multiple New York Times best-selling novels, live-action shorts, comic books, action figures and apparel.
