This image was taken by a forum user on the Halo fansite ‘The Halo Council‘ who found it on German Xbox 360 Dashboard.
The above image contains dates of what looks to be release dates for the three Halo 4 Map Packs coming with the Halo 4 War Games Map Pass, i.e. the first three Map Packs for Halo 4.
In rough terms, that gives us the following release dates for each map pack:
- Crimson Map Pack – December 10th, 2012
- Majestic Map Pack – February 25th, 2013
- Castle Map Pack – April 1st, 2013

343 Industries has yet to comment on the image, or announce any proper release dates for the map packs other than estimate months for the release.
Stay tuned for more information.
