E3 08: Microsoft confirms new Halo title

Halo fans saddened by not only the

complete absence of Halo content from Microsoft’s E3 conference

, but also the

release date slip of Halo Wars

, can now take solace in the apparent confirmation from Microsoft that a new Halo title is indeed in development.

In an interview with MTV News, Xbox boss Don Mattrick said that there was no mention made of the title in the press conference as there was already plenty of content.

Though very little else was said, Mattrick did state that the new title is most definitely not Halo Wars, and nor is it the secret Peter Jackson Halo project.

There have been rumours recently that a squad-based Halo game is in the works, and that, interestingly, it does not feature the famous Master Chief.

The news comes in stark contrast to speculative reports that Microsoft decided to pull any Halo related news from its conference at the last minute.
