Bungie had already hinted in a recent podcast that something could be coming our way this E3 but now GameSpot claims to have a source that lets slip this unlikely bogus news.
Apparently the next Halo game is a tactical shooter that follows a squad of marines. While other details were left sketchy, it would support co-op play throughout the campaign.
GameSpot's source says that the new game will be "a cross between Ghost Recon and Gears of War," telling a far "less cartoony" and a much "more bloody, violent, and grim" tale of conflict between the UNSC and the Covenant.
No word from Microsoft yet but with E3 on our doorstep it's likely this will either be showcased or laugh off soon enough.
