Well the rumor mill is on full tilt and slinging out the confusing crap that always shows up when real news is getting thin and this time it involves our beloved Halo, so i was reading up on the topic and found this little post on variety.com that claims while the rumor could hold true there is no real fact to support it.
Here is the full variety.com report: By now you may have seen the rumor from Official Xbox Magazine (described on Joystiq here) that Gearbox Software (developer of "Brothers in Arms," the upcoming "Aliens: Colonial Marines" is making the next big "Halo" game and doing it for Microsoft's follow-up to the Xbox 360.
I checked with a source I have who is close to Gearbox and the best info I can confirm is that Gearbox has definitely had conversations with Microsoft about doing a new "Halo" game and is very excited at the prospect. However, last my source heard, there was no deal in place. So as far as I can tell, it's quite possible Gearbox will be doing "Halo 4," (or whatever they end up calling it), but it's not a certainty yet.
