Halo 4 confirmed by Microsoft

Halo HD remake and more also outed!

Oopsy daisy! With just over two hours to go until its E3 press conference, Microsoft has apparently by mistake - published a series of major announcements on Xbox.com including news that "Halo 4 is on the way".

The information, images of which can be seen below, has since been removed, but in addition to Halo, Dance Central 2, Kinect Sports Season 2 and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary were all outed. Surprise!

Xbox.com described Halo 4 as "the news millions of Halo fans have waited for", while the long-awaited Halo HD remake is described as: "The epic game that launched a universe, remastered for a new generation".

Two further unannounced Kinect game were listed. In Ryse, "you are the warrior in this cinematic, action-packed Kinect experience". Meanwhile, Kinect Fun Labs is "a fun new app" with "crazy, cool new gadgets". Sounds like Crytek's Codename: Kingdoms project.

Our LA Hit Squad will be furiously live-blogging every key moment of the Xbox conference from 5pm BST.
