It’s Game Developers Conference week and announcements are already starting to leak. First images of 343 Industries’ Halo 4 have leaked showing Master Chief all suited up for battle.

This leak comes from who is said to have broken an embargo on the assets. VG247 reports that an official embargo has been set for today at 6am for media that was shown to the press during an Xbox Spring Showcase last week in San Francisco. More information is likely on the way later today, so check back in the afternoon.

Halo 4 was announced at E3 2011, and is set to launch this holiday season.

[Update] The first Halo 4 development diary is now live.

Some key points from the video include:

  • The Battle Rifle is back
  • Multiplayer is being worked into the fiction (Red vs. Blue Spartans justified)
  • 2 multiplayer maps confirmed: Wraparound and Warehouse
  • All-new art assets and sound effects
