At the end of its Halo 4 panel at PAX 2011, members of the team at 343 Industries left attendees with a glimpse at the direction of the next game in the popular series, in the form of a new teaser video.
Though the teaser is made up of concept art, it does offer a look at where Master Chief's next trilogy of games--dubbed "The Reclaimer Trilogy"--is headed. In the game, Master Chief will be brought closer to the ancient race known as the Forerunners, who are responsible for the creation of the Halo Array.
