Microsoft has confirmed support for its forthcoming Surface tablet will be included in Halo 4.
The company's president of the Interactive Entertainment Business Don Mattrick confirmed the feature during the GamesBeat 2012 conference. In what capacity Surface tablets will be supported in Halo 4 is currently unknown. However, it's believed that SmartGlass will be utilized.
What this means is that Surface tablets will essentially operate as a second touchscreen display for 343 Industries' forthcoming shooter.
Halo 4 is due for a global release on November 6, 2012.
