E3 2009 / Bungie confirms Halo Reach

We hate to say we told you so, but, we told you so… At today’s E3 extravaganza Microsoft confirmed the existence of Halo: Reach, developed by Bungie.

Scheduled for a late 2010 release, the title will act as a prequel to Bungie’s classic first chapter in the Halo franchise. Details, other than that, are sparse but Halo fans fervent interest should be placated by the news that purchasers of Halo: ODST will get an exclusive invite to the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta.
