News both eyecatching and vague out of Microsoft today as the company has revealed Halo 4 will be compatible in some way with its Surface tablet.

Speaking during a panel at GameBeat 2012, Microsoft president of interactive entertainment Don Mattrick stated that 343's upcoming sequel in the sci-fi shooter franchise ‘will work' with Surface.

The statement was confirmed by VentureBeat following the talk.

No other details are available at this time on how the game will interface with the tablet, as Mattrick wouldn't divulge any other info beyond the original mention. That said, SmartGlass is heavily speculated to be involved.
