Spartans rejoice! 343industries has pegged November 6th as the launch date for Halo 4.

“The end of Halo 3 found the Master Chief deep in cryogenic sleep, drifting toward a mysterious Forerunner planet, with Cortana instructed to wake him if she needs him. You can now consider his alarm clock officially set because Halo 4, the game that marks the much anticipated return of legendary hero Master Chief, will launch worldwide on November 6, 2012.”

In celebration of  the announcement Frank O’Connor and Kiki Wolfkill will be making a special video appearance on TBS’ CONAN tonight at 11 p.m. PST. Halo 4 will mark the starting point in a new “Reclaimer” trilogy, and mark the first time since 2007’s Halo 3, that a game in the franchise has ventured into territory not covered by one of the franchise’s novels, comic books, or other media.
