Halo: Forerunner is April Fools Joke

News that appeared yesterday and has been sweeping the internet regarding a possible Halo prequel titled ‘Forerunner’ has been debunked by a Bungie Employee on the official forums. The rumor that appears within Game Informer magazine, stated that the new game would feature 4 player co-op and still feature Master Chief as the main character.

Bungie has responded with the following message;
“We can’t smack ’em for an April Fool’s gag. Not like we never did any.” Ah well. ”

From that I guess we still have to wait until E3 in May for any Halo related news. Where it is still rumored to be the biggest announcement Microsoft have to win attention over the looming Playstation 3.
