Is a Halo game still a Halo game if it's not made by Bungie? That question may get answered with the next iteration of the series. There's a rumor going around the video game world that Halo 4 will be a launch title for the next Microsoft console, and that it is currently in development at Gearbox.

Here's the evidence:

  • A rumor to be printed (apparently) in the next issue of Official Xbox Magazine.
  • A job listing posted by Gearbox that reads:  "I've started a new project. It's big. It's, like, look-at-our-line-up-and-imagine-something-even-bigger kind of big. I'm Directing it myself. I can't mention it publicly yet. When you find out what this is, you'll likely agree that I can't oversell this one."

Gearbox devloped a bunch of titles in the Half-Life series, so they're pretty great, and they developed Halo: Combat Evolved for the Mac, so they're not strangers to the series, but we wonder whether Halo would suffer under their direction, or is this the franchise getting a little stale and needing an injection of fresh, Gearbox-flavored blood? Thoughts?
