Halo 4 is launching in November, and Conan O'Brien's TBS show "Conan" will play a role in driving that news home.
Microsoft announced today that Halo 4 will be available worldwide on November 6. O'Brien will have a special segment on his TBS show tonight to promote the game and its launch, according to the company.
Larry Hryb, director of programming for Xbox Live and best known as "Major Nelson," tweeted yesterday that O'Brien's Team Coco will deliver Halo 4 news at some point today. The Verge followed that up with a report last night, citing sources who said Team Coco will announce that Halo 4 will launch on November 6.
. The title will feature Master Chief, the hero of the original Halo trilogy, and kick off a new trilogy in the series. However, this time around, the games are being developed by Microsoft's 343 Industries, and not Bungie, which created the Halo franchise.
Details on Halo 4 have been leaked out from time to time, but according to the game's official Web site, the title will ask Master Chief to "confront his own destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe."
Update 8:29 a.m. PT to confirm the launch date.
