Whilst Halo 4 has been pegged with a 2012 release, it is believed that the HD quality, 360-bound remake of Halo: Combat Evolved could touch down next autumn to celebrate a decade of the Halo brand.

The first downloadable content pack for Halo: Reach, the franchise’s latest instalment, was released earlier this week bringing three new map areas to the title released in September.
