We may have underestimated Microsoft's life after Bungie plans for the Halo franchise.
Last week the company registered domain names for Halo 7, Halo 8, and Halo 9 as reported by Fusible.
The swiping up of the URLs could indicate Microsoft has ideas well beyond 343 Productions run at Halo 4-6.
It could also indicate nothing more than a slightly over-vigorous covering of the bases regarding the series by the publisher – especially when you take into account the struggle it has had wrestling domains away from previous owners and generally making sure URLs are maintained for all relevant titles.
Regardless, it's a pretty safe bet that we'll have plenty of Halo in our lives for years and years to come.
Halo 4 is due out November 6th on Xbox 360.
