Later today, or more likely tonight, there is going to be some big news announced about the upcoming Halo 4.

According to Alison Stroll (senior producer for 343 Industries) and Major Nelson (Xbox 360 spokesperson) @TeamCoco is going to be making a huge announcement about Halo 4 in the next 24 hours.

Team Coco would be the twitter handle behind the phenomenally popular TV host Conan O’Brien which would make this the third big Microsoft gaming announcement to debut on popular late night comedy shows after Kinect and Gears of War.

Personally I’m a little Halo’d out but I’m also a realist and I know when the Microsoft marketing machine really cranks into gear I’m going to be glued to every prepped video and screenshot that it releases in the vein hope that this time they make a Halo that I actually like instead of making one for the 50 000 000 pubescent brats in America who adore the series.

Yes I’m bitter, the game has an awesome story line and plays well but the online is just destroyed by some of the worst online gamers I’ve ever had the displeasure of locking guns with.

But to the headline, according to TheVerge who have spoken to another one of those infamous anonymous insiders, the big announcement today is that the game will be released on the 6th of November to ensure a pre-Black Friday release.

Which could make for an all out FPS war as Black Ops 2 is also rumoured to be releasing on that exact day. Could Halo 4 and Block Ops 2 really get released on the same day?

If so which one do you think would walk away with the title? Obviously Black Ops has the advantage of multiple platforms but then again Halo is incredibly popular in the States which could sway a lot of the larger media to push for it instead.
