Halo 4, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Dance Central 2 Allegedly Leaked via Xbox.com

An intern is getting fired this morning.

We'll keep this short 'n sweet, as most of the crew is headed to the Microsoft press conference, but someone apparently flipped an E3 section of Xbox.com live early. Some users snapped a shot of the website featuring Halo 4, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Dance Central 2.

None of those are surprising, except for 343 Studios calling it Halo 4 and not something else.

The list includes other likely games, including Kinect Sports Season 2 and Kinect Fun Labs.

There's also Ryse, which may be the final name of Codename: Kingdoms from Crytek.

There's no way to verify the screen is or isn't real. At this stage in the game, Microsoft isn't commenting. We'll know for sure in just a few hours, though.

Oh my, what a surprise. they're making another Halo.

Bioware's just confirmed on Twitter that Mass Effect 3 is being shown at MS's conference too.

epic fail is epic.

The most unanticipated Microsoft E3 press conference ever? 
 
Fucking Kinect Star Wars and Sesame Street? Seriously?

Hahaha, this rules.

Wow, that was super-professional, Mr. Intern.

That guy deserves a raise and then suddenly dropped on his ass, way to ruin the whole event Einstein.

I hope for Microsoft's sake they have more to show than that. At this point, with meaningful exclusives for the 360 all but dried up, I'm ready for a new console cycle.

Close, but no cigar.

Not that surprising but kind of lame having this stuff leaked out just hours before the conference. oh well.

Posted by wolf_blitzer85

Here we go!

Also voice search coming to xbox live? I guess I am interested in seeing what they are doing to the dash functions, so that'll be exciting.

I really hope they don't call it Halo 4. I respect 343i, and what to see what they can do, but the final name should be changed to respect Bungie's legacy.

Well, I'll tune into the MS press conference and hopefully all of the Kinect stuff is later so I can just stop watching it when that comes on.

Posted by Video_Game_King

Halo 4? What about that damn commercial for Halo 3 that said "finish the fight?" What, ODST, Reach, and Wars weren't enough? Granted, ODST was pretty good, and I liked what little I played of Wars, but stick to your damn word! That'd be like if Sega made Phantasy Star games after IV. Wait...

So the only thing worth hearing about are the new XBL features.  Did MS really give up on make new games and instead just keep releasing more and more Halo.  Who do they think they are Activision?

Posted by MeatSim

Somebody messed up.

Posted by BeachThunder

Lots of unpredictable things here, it's great to see that Microsoft is willing to make some wild gambles and experiments with their games.

this just in: halo makes money.

for real? looking forward to that.
Posted by TromboneTony

It's kinda weird to think of there even being a Halo 4, since I thought the trilogy was pretty well wrapped up. Hopefully we'll see a nice new engine for the game in 2012

Edited by Mr_Skeleton

And not a single tear was shed when a dead intern was found in a dark alleyway behind the Microsoft headquarters.

Poor interns.

Posted by Arker101

I enjoy Halo that ain't Reachin'.

Posted by fox01313

I think that for something to come out from Microsoft on this, it's not really that much of leaked information. Still good to see what will come out of these games.

this makes me happy

More like "selfowned!".
Posted by ShaneDev

What does "thats not all" mean in that picture I wonder? Perhaps coming to the new platform? I am gutted they decided to make a new numbered Halo game.

Posted by Peanut

Fucking lame. New franchises please, Microsoft? At least fucking TRY.

Posted by AllanIceman

Electronic Three RAGESON!!

Posted by Thoseposers

They had better call it H4lo

Posted by mrfluke

people need to chill, this already seems like it might be better than the travesty that was last years conference, and "thats not all" with halo 4 interests me..

Posted by InfiniteGeass

Get hype son.

Posted by zyn

Really?  Halo 4?

Posted by Jolt92

Holy shit what a massive fucking screw up. I'm really bummed out about this, would've been a cool surprise.

Posted by Mumrik

It's kind of funny how after all these years in the console business, Microsoft's core exclusives remain what we'd traditionally have thought of as PC games shoehorned onto the consoles. Had they not managed to change the perception in regards to the FPS and 3PS genres back then they'd have been screwed.
 
They basically have shooters, Kinect (ugh!) and Forza (which they probably should be making a bigger deal out of after the mixed reception of GT5).

Posted by Capn_US

I saw this too!  That and a video about new Kinect channels with "gadgets" that looked like apps. 
Posted by mrfluke

microsoft better get the word out that halo 4 is the beginning of a new trilogy for master chief, or they are gonna have a rude awakening (as already displayed in the comments here already)@Video_Game_King said:

People continue to buy those games and they tend to be some of the best so oh well.

Edited by KaneRobot

Oh no, sequels to a successful franchise that historically have always been very solid games! Everyone start throwing out annoying, inaccurate terms like "tired" and "milking it!" 
 
All the dipshits who are screaming for nothing but new franchises - time for a reality check. That ain't how it works. 

Posted by McBonJon

Thumbs up for Dance Central 2. I can't wait for that one. 

Posted by Redbullet685

I wouldn't be surprised if they call it H4LO.

Posted by McBonJon
@Redbullet685: That'd be funny, but please no more. We already have F.3.A.R. Must we have another one?
Posted by JJpenguin
@Redbullet685: I laughed
Posted by MachoFantastico

Not exactly a shock! There was some proof of Halo 4 months ago. Still hope they do something fresh with it.

Posted by Tenroe

it's 100% real I happened to be on the page when they screwed up and even watched a video for the Kinect Funlabs which looked fun as hell. Then the links stopped wroking and on refresh it was all gone. I didn't see Halo 4 but I did see the remake of Halo CE in the links.

A rude awakening? What, that people are going to needlessly bitch about it on the internet? Who cares? Are you also pissed that they made a Back to the Future game that picks up after the third film, even though it said "The End" at the end of part 3?
