Gearbox in talks to do new Halo game

But no deal in place yet, says Variety.

Brothers in Arms developer Gearbox Software is in discussions about the next instalment in the Halo series, according to a post on the Variety blog.

The poster says "a source... Close to Gearbox" confirmed the studio "has definitely had conversations with Microsoft about doing a new Halo game and is very excited at the prospect". However, no deal has been signed as yet.

"As far as I can tell, it's quite possible Gearbox will be doing Halo 4 (or whatever they end up calling it, but it's not a certainty yet," the poster concludes.

This isn't the first time such a deal has been rumoured. It's mentioned in the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine (thanks Joystiq), which claims the new Halo game will be a launch title for the next Xbox.

But let's not forget, it's just a rumour for now. A rumour about a deal that hasn't even been signed yet, assuming it's actually happening, which it might not be, because it's all a rumour Allegedly.
