Halo 3 hitting stores in the Spring of 2007

Microsoft had a big showing last year when the Xbox 360 was finally shown to the masses. MS knows they've got to pull out the big guns if they want distract attendees from their competitors big announcements. The biggest of these guns is undoubtedly Halo 3. Expect gameplay footage and a tentative release date for the game, possibly as early as this fall. While MS and Bungie have long said that, much like Halo 2, Halo 3 would "be out when it's ready", it's also no secret that MS, or at least Bill Gates, wanted to throw Halo 3 up against the PS3's launch. It's also been rumored that Bungie was forced to cut a large amount of content, including a large portion of the campaign, from the final version of Halo 2. With loads of finished content already laying around, and over two years of work, I wouldn't be shocked to see Halo 3 could be making an appearance on shelves this holiday season. However, most reports have Halo 3 hitting stores in the Spring of 2007, at the earliest. Hurry up I can't wait for Halo 3.
