Sorry to pick out one point from your post, but I wanted to ask if you've played Halo: Reach? That was a return to "past" events, with a certain outcome, and it was still (I reckon anyway) a better game than Halos 3 and 4. Each to his/her own and all that, but its an example that you might already know the destination, but the journey can still be fun.
A very valid point, I haven't played Halo 4 but I definitely prefered Reach to 3, though I suspect I played more 3 multi in all, but that includes the ODST Mythic disc so I suppose that doesn't count.
Anyway, I think a new start is exactly what this franchise needs. Fair enough the ending blah blah yada etc, but at the end of the day I enjoyed all three games, increasingly in terms of actual gameplay, and so I'd like to see the team push the envelope and really make a team worthy of next gen.
The vagueness of description makes me think it could be more of an MMO, which to be honest I'd be happy with, or even a coop option - imagine having human squad mates in missions?! Obviously it should always remain a personal story at heart and so the players who are guests in your game don't get to make story decisions and such but generally I could have a lot of fun playing along like that.
I hope they get some of the vocal talent back, even if they do different characters, because I think there's a lot of character just from the voices and that is absolutely key to the franchise's success.
Also Frostbite 2 is fantastic so I can see it only doing good things for ME4.
