Microsoft Store has outed the Halo 4 story overview which kind of hints that the flood will be returning. The game was originally shown at E3 2013 and it has been confirmed that it is the first Halo game that will be running at 60 fps.
The overview can be found below, it reads:
In possession of a mysterious data chip, Petty Officer John-117, aka Master Chief, confronts a new battery of challenges and tests in a Herculean effort to stay alive in a galaxy where sentient life is mercilessly hunted. Pre-order the next chapter in the wildly popular Halo series designed exclusively for Xbox One.
There’s also a placeholder date on the Microsoft Store which is set at December 21, 2014. We know the game comes out in 2014, but there are chances that it will be either out in September or November, which are the months when Microsoft has usually released major Halo games.
