There’s been a flurry of Halo activity over the last few days, in the lead up to Microsoft’s E3 press conference next week.

Among the news is a new line of Halo toys, bringing with them bundled DLC skins. In addition to this, separate references to Halo projects called Bootcamp and Spartan Assault have appeared.

Let’s start with the toys first. A new wave of Halo action figures is slated for September, called Halo 4 Series 2. Selling for $13.99 a pop, the figures each come with DLC codes for new multiplayer weapon and armour skins. You can see a selection of the content below, with more at retailer Toywiz.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has registered domains for something called Halo: Spartan Assault.

The domains, including, and, were registered in late May [via Fusible]. We don’t what the domains relate to, so your guess is good as ours as to whether you think it’s a spin-off game, Spielberg’s upcoming Halo TV series, or something else entirely.

A similar air of mystery surrounds a Halo-related project called Bootcamp [via Game Front], which has turned up in a Korean Ratings Board listing. Translated, the listing mentions Halo 3.

Responding to the discovery, a Microsoft rep added to the mystery by saying, "What's Bootcamp? It is not related to our Xbox One efforts, or the Reclaimer Saga, but rather a project we're very enthusiastic about and will have more to say about in the near future.”

The Reclaimer Saga is the second Halo trilogy kicked off last year with 343 Industries Halo 4.

So that’s that. Plenty to chew on over the next week or so, as we build up to E3. Perhaps we’ll learn more about the projects then.
