There's a few of these posts, but the site I use for buying games emailed me and lists the games release date as 16th November 2012.

It's kind of the date that would make most sense being a Friday mid November giving people a nice amount of time to purchase the game as a gift for Christmas.

Still, release dates can always change. I was personally thinking Halo 4 will be released this September.

^love it

Most all blockbuster games are released Mid October-Mid November...the game's release generates excitement, and those that can, buy the game immediately. The excitement continues because it's the new big thing, and it gets picked up as Christmas gifts.

...doesn't matter, still not buying it. I'll wait a few months, pick it up used, 100% it, and resell it via ebay.

I work manage a game store and of course we get little insider infos now and then. As of now... We have NO definate date for 4's release, no info on any other CE/Reach DLC..noting. Either it's still a suprise that no one knows about, reps can't tell, or it's just not set in stone.

I would say 11/16/12 would have the same odds of being true as anyone throwing out a TUESDAY date from end of August till New years day...

The piece of news that I'm looking forward to the most is the announcement of a Legendary edition.

They won't go head-to-head with Call of Duty. That's nailing your own coffin. Halo 3, ODST and Reach had September releases, Halo 4 will more than likely see daylight during the month of September.

This is the logic i'm going with, but 343 may have their own plans and business model.

just becuz it has sold more then halo doesnt mean its the best. when ppl hear like oh boy another cod game they rush up and pre order it and dont even think of what the game is about hell they might of bought it one day and sold it a week later but to me halo is the greatest game ever made so will see how well 343 does.

You mean the same Gears 2 that came out before the Tuesday release date was widespread? You mean the same Guitar Hero series that isn't made anymore? Shut up.

The only company that releases games on a day other than Tuesday is Nintendo, and they can get away with it.

Sales Figures are released on Monday

Consumers know when to look for new releases. If a Tuesday release is selling well, there still is time to order more before the weekend.

Yeah, but Halo 1 & 2 (and CEA) were released in November, and Halo Wars had a March release...

I would say September as to not compete with MoH and CoD, but who knows for sure really. They'll reveal it when they feel like it.

Halo 4 - Spartans & Multiplayer First Look Trailer - YouTube


It says Holiday 2012 at the end of the video. Unless they don't know what the holiday season is that means November/December. It's definitely not September.

I'm placing my bets on the typical Halo release month of September. Too many games releasing in November. That would be insane.

Whatever date it's going to be I'm excited and patiently waiting for a Limited or Collector's Edition announcement.

If they do have an uber edition, I really hope they announce it soon. It takes a while for me to pay those things off, so I'd like to get a head start on it.

It's after October 2nd. Frankie said that Halo 4 will be released after Karen Traviss' next Halo book released. I'm going with early November release.

Assuming the statement of releasing after the book stays true, than I would also bet on an early November release, going back to the roots of the Halo franchise. My guess is it would be on a Tuesday (at least for U.S) so without it being too early or too late into the month, I would guess that narrows us down to either the 13th or the 20th of November.

That said, I am glad to know the release date of one of my next novels. I don't have many active book series left to read, so I cling to the few I do have left. Halo is a blessing because I get two books in a close vicinity to one another (Primordium came out a couple months after Glasslands and I'm guessing the third one will as well) but after that I have nothing to read. (I can only hope Orson Card release his next Ender book sometime this year or early next year as well.)

If it were going to be a September release, it would say Fall. If you look at the release windows for Gears 3, and Halo 3, Reach, etc, they say Fall of such and such year. Whereas holiday is more pointing at a November release. I'm all for this, as I've already got Fall of Cybertron and Borderlands 2 to contend with in August and September respectively. Adding Halo 4 would not bode well until November. As for the whole CoD thing, in all honesty I think its high time Halo got back into a November release. Anniversary was released the exact same date as its original, maybe it was no big huge game but it still did well.

In short, I really dont see where people are getting the idea that Halo 4 is going to be released in September. They're assuming that because its another Halo its automatically going to the same month as the last one. This is 343's game, not Bungie's. Perhaps they want it a different month for once.

I think you're right. I personally would like a Sept release just cuz there aren't any games releasing at that time that I would buy. Having a Nov release would put it in competition with CoD and MoH, shooters that are different than Halo, but shooters nonetheless.

The good thing about a Nov/Dec release though is that the game will probably be available on sale during Black Friday, Cyber Monday week, or before Xmas.

if this is true, I wonder if the "eaqrly" countries will get this prior to the 6th, or they're considering the 6th a final date for those countries that release late.. If so.. late oct for US/ENG...

Reason being? Do you not like Gamestop, Halo or because it would only be $5? :confused:

I dont think so. I read that they are pretty much done with the single player and are working on spartan ops and multiplayer. I am not sure where I read it, could of been game informer idk. This game has been in the works for sometime now, I dont see a delay happening at all.
