'Halo 4' Trailer Unleashed By Microsoft At E3 2011 (VIDEO)

"Halo" is back with an all-new release for Xbox.

Microsoft concluded its keynote at Monday's E3 conference by announcing that "Halo 4" is in development and will be released sometime in 2012.

Microsoft ran a teaser trailer for the new game, which kicks off a new trilogy in the Halo saga and begins where the previous trilogy left off.

"We left Master Chief in a deep freeze at the end of the last story. Here we get to pick that up again," said Marc Whitten, Microsoft's corporate vice president for Xbox Live, according to USA Today.

A rebooted version of the original Xbox hit, titled "Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary," is also set to be released on November 15 with better graphics, redesigned levels, and new multiplayer features.

Though the "Halo" releases won't support gesture-based input via the Xbox's Kinect peripheral, Microsoft did announce new features and titles just for the Kinect. To find out what else Microsoft unveiled at E3 on Monday, click here.
